Cork O'Connor is on the run from professional hit men who have already put a bullet through his leg. Desperate, he finds sanctuary outside a small town called Bodine, in an old resort owned by his cousin, Jewell DuBois. When the body of a young girl surfaces along the banks of the Copper River and another teenager vanishes, Cork turns from his own worries and focuses on tracking the conspiracy of killers before his cousins fourteen-year-old son, Ren and his best friend, Charlie, fall victim. It's an error - one a good man might make - but as the contract killers who are hunting him close in, Cork realizes too late that it may be the last mistake he'll ever make.

Good fast-paced story with interesting characters, locale, and plot twists. // After this first reading of a Krueger novel, I'll be going back to the beginning of the Cork O'Connor series.

She had never much considered the other side of love, thinking vaguely that if love were gone, what was left was sadness or perhaps simply emptiness. It surprised her to find there was no emptiness, that many emotions rushed in to fill her heart along with the sadness. Self-pity. Bitterness. Anger. Sometimes even hate. [Ch.8]

We abandoned them [children].... Cats, dogs, we spay or neuter, but people we let procreate with blithe abandon, people who have no business bringing children into this world. When those kids become desperate we don't see them, don't hear them. As long as they're not haunting our block, staring hopelessly into our windows, we can pretend they don't exist or worse, that whatever horror they deal with they've brought on themselves. They're not our children. They're not even like our children. [Ch.43]
