"Action-packed, tragic and intense, this is another masterful work by the indomitable Danny Smith. Outstanding and Very Highly Recommended."
A traumatized ex-cop. A ruthless ex-con. A deadly game of cat and mouse…
Rich Farris is on the brink of suicide. Suffering from PTSD and on a downward spiral since retiring from L.A. Sheriff’s Homicide, he’s just about to end it all when a phone call spurs him to action. The daughter of a distant family member has gone missing. Farris shifts into rescue mode and races to Louisiana, only to learn the girl’s been found dead… in Boise, Idaho.
Joined—whether he wants to be or not—by the victim’s bright young friend, Farris heads to the Gem State determined to bring the murderer to justice. But the trail of bodies quickly extends from Idaho into Nevada and California, and he fears he’ll never capture his deadly quarry.
Can the damaged former lawman stop a stone-cold killer before he takes more innocent lives?
From the author of the best-selling and award-winning Dickie Floyd Detective series, The Outlaw is the brooding first installment in the Rich Farris Detective series. If you like hard-boiled mysteries, nail-biting manhunts, and authentic, complex characters, then you’ll love Smith’s action-packed detective novels.
