The Searcher by Simon Toyne

He doesn't know who he is, why he's here and why he's running. He's barefoot, the road is hot from the sun, and when he looks back all he sees is a crashed plane burning.  How did he get here?

William Morrow and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 6th.

When the cops arrive they take him into custody.  They ask him if his name is Solomon Creed.  He can only tell them he might be; it sounds familiar.  It seems that name the book was in the book he was carrying.  All he knows is that he has to save a man in that town.  Unfortunately, they had his funeral that morning.

This is tale of greed and power.  There's a Mexican drug cartel involved, politicians, and killers of all kinds.  Solomon is trying to save the wife of the man that died.  He gets involved in a mix of fire, gunfire, double-crosses and triple-crosses and lots of death and dying.  He survives by using skills he didn't know he had.  

This is mix of mythology with present day drug dealers.  History from the past is catching up to the present day town occupants.  The only thing really left standing in town is the church.  And Solomon heads out, towards his next quest.  I can't imagine what he will do next.
