Shooting Crows At Dawn (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Election day is two weeks away and Sheriff Jubel Dark's failure to solve a two-year-old rape and murder is likely to cost him his job. If that wasn't trouble enough, three escaped killers are racing west across Texas, heading for the Mexican border. On their way through Dark's county they murder a local family and steal their car. With these fugitives on the loose, Dark no longer has any time or energy to worry about the election. He's willing to trade his star, and even his life, if that's what it will take to bring these murderers to Texas Justice.
