Coming in October from Zondervan is another intriguing thriller, this time by Ace Collins.
A quiet evening out turns into a deadly chase that ends on a muddy mountain road. Murder in a small town, a local attorney and his beautiful—and wealthy—wife gunned down; it’s big news for this part of the country. But the killers didn’t expect one of their victims to live. After burying his wife, attorney Lije Evans is on a mission to find them—and to solve a mystery that has more twists and turns than an Ozark-mountain back road. As he sifts through clues and follows dead ends, Evans realizes he is still a target. Discovering evidence of a conspiracy that goes back generations, Evans comes closer to finding the reason his wife was killed, and why an innocent man is now scheduled to be executed on death row. There are dark secrets hiding in the hills around this quiet Ozark-mountain town. Evans must find the truth before another innocent person dies.
