Shaking the Tree (Max Strong #1)
Out of prison, but still on parole, Max just wants to go to work and get through each day. He doesn’t even care that the program stuck him in Essex – a nice, but nowhere small town. With his head already full of painful memories, he’d like it just fine if his past and future stayed nice and quiet. Too bad the present just got really messy.
A body in a tree. A missing briefcase. A Russian hit man. A DEA agent bent on revenge. Not to mention a sheriff with dangerous ambition and some pissed off bikers. Things are suddenly very busy in sleepy Essex county. Bodies are turning up. Secrets are coming out. Questions are being asked.
It’s not good being the new guy in a small town.
