After a bloody homecoming, and a shattering run-in with her lost love, Ava Teague is launched into her past, forced by circumstance to remember the events five years ago that led to Mercy’s departure from Knoxville.

Readers can follow along with her, or wait for the finished novel. This rich narrative travels from the swamps outside New Orleans to the foothills of Tennessee, spanning fourteen years, following a family of outlaws bound by brotherhood, blood, and a love that knows no boundaries. Read Part I: “Lying Down With Dogs,” and Part II: “Crossing Lines,” and be on the lookout for Part III: “All-American Monsters,” this fall.
