Description
He is a man alone, a drifter haunting the back roads and highways of America. Every town he leaves behind preserves but a glimmer of him, the cool, handsome man with the teardrop scar whose presence fades with the sunlight. But all that changes when a brutal assault forces him to play Good Samaritan for a beautiful young woman, placing him squarely in the crosshairs of a vengeful ex-con. Caught between duty to his fellow man and the anonymity of life on the road, the Samaritan struggles to resist the forces drawing him into a shadowy world of violence, intrigue and deception. When his estranged teenage daughter is threatened, the Samaritan will make his choice and never look back. Reaching from Chicago's back alleys to West Hollywood's sun-soaked streets to Wall Street's vast corridors of power, this suspenseful novel introduces an unforgettable new hero to the ranks of contemporary American fiction.
