When Joe Pickett's oldest daughter Sheridan gets a message saying "tell Sheridan April called" Joe is shaken to his core. April was his adopted daughter who was killed in a massacre six years earlier in the book "Winterkill", or was she? Joe with the help of his daughter, F.B.I agent Coons and an old friend and fugitive Nate Romanowski set out to find out if April still lives. The case is fueled by cryptic texts from April who is heading west from Chicago in the company of mobster "Stenko" and his loony son Robert. This is a fun ride featuring great characters and western settings, looking forward to reading more by C.J.Box.

This is my first Stuart Woods novel and his fourth Ed Eagle novel. Ed is just settling in with his new wife Susannah when he gets word that his vicious ex wife Barbara has escaped from a Mexican prison and is on her way to Santa Fe with vengeance on her mind. Ed is also busy trying to clear Tip Hanks a golf pro from the murder of his wife and there are several other story lines interwoven with characters from previous novels.
I really enjoyed his writing style, good characters and his description of Santa Fe which is a town I know and love.
