Een thriller waarin twee verhalen door elkaar spelen. Het ene bouwt langzaam vanuit het verleden naar het heden en er wordt uitgelegd waarom de twee broers de relatie hebben die ze hebben. Het andere verhaal gaat over een zoektocht naar de dochter van de ene broer, waarbij Henri Quinn (mede-gevangene van broer Evan) langzamerhand de geheimen uit het verleden ontrafelt. Het boek is heftig, rauw en onverwacht. Knap geschreven en heel sfeervol. Het echte geweld barst pas los na pag. 300. Je zit er al een tijd op te wachten. ( )

Two stories merging into one with lots of "y'all" style 'n down south American talk thrown in plus two brothers whom you like and dislike in equal measures and another characters who do the whole see each other and fall in love deal. Its not a bad story just takes a while to get there and at times I got a tad fed up with all the supposedly authentic down south talk ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The only reason Henry Quinn survived three years inside was because of Evan Riggs, a one-time country singer, one-time killer, now serving a life sentence with no hope of parole. On the day of his release, Henry promises Evan he will find his daughter, the daughter he has never met, and deliver a letter. A free man, Henry heads to the small Texan town where Evan grew up and where his brother Carson now resides as sheriff. There's no sign of the girl and her uncle claims to know nothing of her whereabouts. But Henry isn't going to give up. He made a promise, no matter what, he's going to keep it. As Carson's behaviour towards him becomes ever more threatening, Henry realises that there are dark secrets buried at the heart of this quiet town. What terrible thing drove the brothers apart, and what really happened to the missing girl?"--Dust jacket.… (more)
