Book three of the bestselling Max Freeman mystery series: Max seeks to uncover the twisted truth behind an eighty-year-old triple homicide
In the 1920s, three of Mark Mayes’s ancestors left to help build the first road through the Everglades—backbreaking labor from which they never returned. Now, decades later, Mayes has discovered letters that point to murder as the cause of their disappearance, and he hires Max Freeman to get to the bottom of it all. But as Freeman follows the trail of evidence, he incurs the wrath of the corporation that built the road, and finds that the murder case may not be as cold as everyone assumed. Freeman’s search takes him to the heart of the Everglades to reveal the truth behind the murders—and put a stop to a cycle of violence three generations in the making. This ebook contains an illustrated biography of the author featuring never-before-seen photos. “Backs up its detailed police procedure with entertaining, quirky characters . . . You’ll feel right with [Max] at the scene of the crime.” —People
“Captures the intrigue, lyrical beauty, and darkness of the Florida Everglades better than any other writer.” —James Lee Burke
