Jack Price, a small-town public defender living in Coles Creek, Mississippi, gets more than he bargains for when he's appointed to represent Lester Crowe, a mysterious drifter charged with the murder of local high school girl Amanda Dunbar.
Jack soon finds out Lester Crowe is no ordinary client; he just might be the Devil himself. He's got a deal for Jack: help him beat the murder charge - by any means necessary - and Lester will help Jack with his failing marriage and alcohol problem. More importantly, he'll help Jack find his daughter, Sarah, who was kidnapped two years prior.
Jack is torn. He'd do anything for his daughter, but he knows helping Lester Crowe could cost him his soul. With the help of a former client named Eddie who owes Jack a favor, Jack embarks on a mission to find Sarah on his own.
In a race against time, Jack must find and rescue Sarah before Lester is acquitted for murder. Along the way he'll have to deal with Lester's minions - a group of people Jack's wife dubs the "broken men" - as well as the supernatural games Lester plays, even as he's locked in his cell at the Hernando County Sheriff's Department.
This supernatural thriller, told from Jack's perspective and set on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, runs about 67,000 words.
