The road to hell is paved with more than good intentions... The brutal killing of a highway official thrusts Sheriff Jax Hayes into an investigation of murder and degenerate activities that snakes through the State Capital all the way to the U.S. Senate. During his thirty years as sheriff of rural Drake County, Jax thought he had seen everything. It hadn't prepared him for a contract killer, mutilated victims and an underage sex ring. With bodies stacking up in the morgue, and bombs going off in the streets, the timing could not be worse. He must come to grips with his ex-lover, a sexy FBI agent, and a mysterious stranger with an unknown agenda. Will Jax solve the case in time to save his failing re-election bid, or will he be forced to choose between meting out vigilante justice over serving the law, and giving into revenge over cold hard reason? ROAD KILL is a taunt thriller, peopled with characters of great depth, and told with a dry wit and southern charm.
