A rural fighter is desperately trying to escape a dark past and the demons that dwell there.
In the second installment of the bestselling Billy Beckett series, Billy is desperately trying to pick up the pieces a year after the sensational kidnapping of his star client and the tragic deaths of his brother and a close friend. The formerly unshakable sports agent isn’t sure how to play the game anymore. Despite this, he’s quickly thrust into two volatile situations with danger and deceit lurking at every turn. Will Billy be able to put it all on the line for his clients? Or will he succumb to the crushing pressure of the highest possible stakes?
“The gracious dinner host took a big swig from the bottle of Jack Daniel’s and passed it to Billy, who was starting to loosen up. Let your mind go.
“You’re such a great fisherman, how come we didn’t
have trout almondine for dinner?” Billy said.
“I’m a great fisherman, not a great cook. And to be honest, I don’t much care for the taste of trout. They’re more fun to catch than eat. Of course, you wouldn’t know.”
“Hey, I caught a couple. At least I didn’t do any damage. Didn’t hook either one of us.”
“You did fine,” the old man said, tossing another log on the fire.
Billy took a second sip of the whiskey. “So, you said you’re a retired businessman. Why do they call you Sheriff?”
“It goes way back. I’ve had a hand in a lot of things through the years, but law enforcement isn’t one of them. I guess you could say I’m an entrepreneur. Just don’t make me spell it.”
Sheriff had an easy laugh and looked right at home by the campfire. “And you’re a sports agent?” he said, taking back the whiskey bottle by the neck. “You represent pro athletes, negotiate contracts and that kind of stuff?”
“That’s a lot of it. I used to be an attorney in Atlanta and was just looking for a change. Been doing it a few years now. I’ve always been a sports junkie, so it works out pretty well. Usually.”
