1st ed. fine in dust jacket. The author's first mystery. SIGNED COPY. Vance thought he'd left the violence behind when he quit the military twenty years ago and moved to North Carolina. Now a freelance gun writer and the father of four year old Cullen, he wants nothing more tha to forget those days, but that was before the bank robber pointed a gun at him, before Vance's instincts took over and he dropped the gunman first, before he found out just whom he'd killed and what it meant. For the gunman had family too, and they deffinitely believe in and eye for an eye.or maybe two. N° de ref. de la librería 013555

Sinopsis:

A former special military operative-turned-writer and family man, Tyler Vance finds himself the target of a vengeful and violent family after he kills a bank robber during a holdup. A first novel.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Good old boys from the Bible Belt put paid to the vengeful plans of alien weapons traffickers in this preachy debut thriller. One fateful day, Tyler Vance (a North Carolina freelance writer who churns out books and articles for the guns and ammo market) finds himself in the middle of a bank robbery while on his way to deposit a sizable royalty check. Pistol-packing Ty drops two of the bandits with a few well-aimed shots, but two others escape with a hostage. One of the holdup men who got away is a Bosnian Serb named Valentin Resovic, and his brother Mikhail was a victim of Vance's accurate fire. A transnational gun-runner and racketeer with a lengthy Interpol file, the surviving Resovic vows to make Ty pay for his loss. But Vance, a veteran of a hush-hush Army unit that trained him in a variety of lethal arts and employed his talents in Korea during the '70s, is not without his resources. Though day care is a constant problem, the straight-arrow widower who single-parents a clever five-year-old son quickly recruits a special force of family members, friends, and volunteers from his old military unit (now at Fort Bragg) to help him provide a solution to the Resovic problem. Hunters and hunted have at each other in a series of bloody encounters in the Tarheel State and points south. At length, the ever armed and dangerous Ty (who seldom misses an opportunity to deliver a sermonette against smoking or in favor of wholesome family values and prayer) finds God on the side of the big guns as he confronts his Serbian nemesis at a rural farmstead where Cullen is held captive. Whatever momentum the wildly improbable narrative manages to gather--thanks to Harvey's modest gift for scenes of violent action--is braked by constant moralizing and posturing. For readers with a high tolerance for redneck self-righteousness and machismo. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
