It’s Atlanta, 1974. Ex-cop Jim Hardman and his drinking buddy Hump Evans, an ex-NFL player, will do just about anything short of a felony to make a buck…but even that rule is flexible.
In their sixth adventure, Hardman steps into the middle of a bar fight and stumbles into a deadly but lucrative job — protecting a guy who is next-in-line for a massive inheritance from being murdered by professional assassins. But as the body count rises, and killers just keep on coming, it becomes clear to Hardman that the motive is more than money… and that he may be fighting an adversary who will never stop, even after death.
This new edition includes an Afterword from author Cynthia Williams, who was one of Ralph Dennis’ students.
There's a killer stalking children in a small, North Carolina town...and the only one who can stop him is the local Sheriff, a man crippled physically and emotionally by a war that he's still fighting within himself. The haunting, powerful new thriller by Ralph Dennis, author of the legendary Hardman series of crime novels

and supplied top entertainment.
Among the best series books around.
Exceptional characterization, strong and vigorous prose, and a glimpse into a place and time that has long since disappeared.
Dennis may not have made literature of Hardman, but he damn sure touched on it more than a time or two.
