Texas Ranger Brody Calhoun is with his parents in west Texas when an unexpected attack injures the brother of Rebecca Morgan, Brody's high school sweetheart. The local sheriff, a good friend, asks for Brody’s help. At first, it seems like an open-and-shut case.
As Brody digs deeper, he realizes the attack may be related to an organized crime trial Rebecca will be overseeing. With Rebecca's help, he compiles evidence involving cattle rustling, bribery, and dirty payoffs that shatter the entire community and put Rebecca directly in the line of fire.
Brody expects to protect her. What he never expects is to fall for Rebecca all over again, or for a murder to throw the case wide open. Is Brody's faith strong enough to withstand not only deep-rooted corruption and cattle rustling, but also love?
I think I held my breath through most of this read. I feel quite light-headed now. :-) Gripping suspense with so many twists and turns your head will be spinning and your heart will be pounding and you'll reach a point where you simple cannot put this book down until you've reached the hair-raising conclusion.
Daley knows how to spin a complex suspense with tantalizing clues and lots of action. Intense about sums it up -- and that includes the delicious romance that softens the tale and results in a whole different kind of tension.
In a word: superb.
