Marty is still trying to get along with Judd Travers, and Judd is as cranky and unpleasant as ever. Everyone in town is against the man, and when someone Judd once had a fight with turns up murdered, Judd is the assumed murderer. But Marty keeps trying to be kind and give him a chance.
A mystery, a family story, and a tale of redemption.
Perhaps the best in the series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689814615, Paperback)


Marty's parents think so -- even Judd Travers, whose history of drinking and violence keeps Marty from completely trusting that his beloved dog, Shiloh, will always be safe from Judd.

"Some people just seem to attract trouble," Marty's Ma says, and Judd attracts the sort of trouble that makes it hard to believe he's really changed. First, the police find the body of a man who'd fought with Judd. Then, a vicious attack forces Judd to kill one of his dogs. But just when it seems Judd will never be able to escape the shadow of his past, a dangerous accident gives him the chance to prove himself. Can Judd Travers actually become a hero?
