MAYHEM. MURDER. RETRIBUTION. (THIS BOOK is RATED-R FOR LANGUAGE by the publisher.)

Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning, he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five-year-old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds. On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son . . . and unborn child.

SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go.

The cat had its head all the way in the window now and Dale thought of the hundreds of action movies he’d seen. He thought, Rack the fucking slide and dragged himself down into the tub again, using his free hand to chamber a round. Then he was back up through the hole, watching the cougar brace its feet to pull at something up there. He heard Tom

“Hey, friend, calm down. Your plane crashed but I think you’re okay.” “I must’ve blacked out,” Tom said. “Is this your place? I’ve been yelling for help for a while now. Thought I was going to die up here.” Assessing Tom’s situation, the guy said, “Shit, man, you’re really wedged in there.” He leaned in and tried to shift the stud off Tom’s thighs—giving Tom a close-up view of the handgun holstered under his arm—but couldn’t get it to budge. Now the guy turned to face the room, saying, “Get up
