About the publication
A boy and his father are separated by an unforgivable lie. They meet again as adults. The father, close to death, tells of the men who cheated him of all he owned and the town of Mission that spurned him when he needed help. John plans revenge. The sting that follows is so well sprung that you will feel the greed of his father's enemies and smell the mud they crawl in.
