Killing Justice : Weapons expert in the covert supernatural military division, Carson Tines returns home after his latest mission and discovers five bodies being pulled from the lake behind his home. For years he’s been tracking the unusual disappearances, but there’s one ID that he doesn’t need DNA to confirm. His father; the town drunk.
When his colleagues and psych ward resident, Lucy Bray shows up to help solve the case it’s just a matter of time before they add Carson and his brothers to the suspect list. Carson is willing to dredge up deadly lies and past hurts if it means keeping his brother’s out of jail and losing the only family he has left.

“Give the kid a break, Sheriff. The Marines instilled a sense of duty in Carson a long time ago. He’s no longer the punk you remember,” Master Sergeant Farley announced. “Isn’t that right, son?”
“Sir, yes sir.” Carson rose from his seat and nodded.
Sheriff Anderson glanced over his shoulder at his daughter, Janet, before turning back around. “See that you keep your nose clean, Tines. I’d hate to throw you in jail.”
The sheriff claimed that was where Carson would end up all along. He’d been wrong.
Carson retook his seat and grabbed his beer.
“I’m surprised you’d have time to worry about us seeing that your guys are dragging several bodies out of the lake,” Bishop said, a little louder than necessary.
The patrons sitting nearby turned in their direction. One said, “Is that true, Sheriff?”
