From the Publisher:
James W. Hall's haunting debut novel first introduced the rugged character Thorn and the breathtaking South Florida landscape where he lives. Thorn's past includes a savage act of revenge on the drunken hit-and-run killer of his parents. Now, fifteen years later, Thorn still cannot escape that moment, or the darkness he took into his soul that night. Not even his best friend, Sugarman, knows the truth. Not even Sarah Ryan knows the depths of her lover's pain. Then suddenly, the nightmare begins again as Thorn's foster mother is found slaughtered. Thorn can almost taste the rage as he stalks her killer and waits.
