When two dismembered torsos wash up on the banks of the local river in the small industrial town of Pleasant Valley, residents are horrified. Between contradicting statements, police ineptitude, lust, lies, manipulation, incest, the motorcycle gang The Devilâ€™s Disciples, crooked cops, and a botched crime scene, everyone becomes a suspect.
The young beautiful Jackie Reeves, a registered nurse, believes the killer is a man from her past. She contacts the dangerously handsome FBI Agent Walker Harmon. An arrest is made, but Harmon and Jackie believe an innocent man is being railroaded by local cops. How far will these loverâ€™s go to solve this heinous crime before anymore killings. Determined to find the truth, Agent Harmon and Jackie are forced to run a gauntlet of deep trouble and turmoil, which marks them for death.
Excerpt:Â â€œThanks for the info,â€ he said, sliding forward his empty mug.
Walking toward the front door, Harmon felt every eye on him. He also noticed customers whispering about FBI involvement. As the sweet voice of Tanya Tucker sang in the background, he scanned the crowd. Along with a thirst for alcohol, The Devil’s Disciples and their sweaty, leather-clad women produced numerous problems while in townâ€“from fistfights to disorderly conduct. They roamed the streets. Reports of vandalism kept the police busy. Many locals felt the motorcycle group were the â€œvoicesâ€ Mr. Manors heard in the cornfield, or the â€œvoicesâ€ came from persons more â€œmysteriousâ€ and â€œdarkerâ€ than anyone imagined.
Just outside the bar, three men confronted Harmon. â€œWe know Vernon James killed them kids, and we ain’t gonna stand by and let the F.B.I. nail someone else.â€ Out of the blue one of the men leaped forward and punched the agent in the jaw, sending him reeling backward. Shedding his coat, and calling on his Marine training, Harmon thumped two of the goons before a bystander with a tire iron jumped-in.
