Grey Stanton once thrived in the hard-edged criminal courts. Now on sabbatical, he's writing a book and spending time with his wife and child on their peaceful Texas homestead.

Hocksley is a dangerous man on a mission to recover money he stashed before going to jail - and he's convinced that Stanton knows where to find it...
