Nothing Short of Dying: A Clyde Barr Novel by Erik Storey

Are you ready for a fast dangerous ride through the forest?  Have you got all your weapons with you?  Can you trust the ones you're with?  Then let's ride!

Scribner and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 16th.

Clyde Barr just got out of a Mexican jail and he's camping in Colorado.  He needs to rest and regroup before he continues on into Alaska and the wilds.  He's had it with people and mercenary work.  Then his sister calls and tells him he needs to come get her or she's going to be killed in a few days.  So much for resting...

Clyde calls in some markers on his way in.  He needs to know where his sister is and who might have her.  The answer isn't good news.  It's a new drug dealer in town and he's elusive.  But Clyde can be elusive, too.

This is fast paced hard hitting suspense story with lots of a bad guys, no hesitation about taking lives, and is filled with constant danger.  Even the so-called friends Clyde have are full of self-interest and greed.  He has to be careful with everyone.

Those who are faint of heart need not read this book.  It's not a kind book.  But it will keep you in your chair reading until you're done.  And you'll have big breath to let out at the end.  So it's up to you...
