Forced off the road and into a crash that leaves her in a coma, barely clinging onto life, journalist Nikki Swagger had been investigating reports of a crystal meth superlab in sleepy Tennessee, when she found herself inadvertently peeling back the layers on a huge conspiracy. Bob Lee Swagger is worried. As a former Marine Corps sniper, he’s picked up more than his fair share of enemies hell-bent on revenge and he senses that something isn’t right. Unconvinced by the Sheriff’s conclusion that Nikki’s crash was caused by a local kid high on Meth, Bob picks up the investigation where his daughter left off.

A wealth of evidence ties the chief suspect, retired Marine sniper Carl Hitchcock, to the murders. Holder, until recently, of the record number of kills in Vietnam and anxious to reclaim his title, Hitchcock’s subsequent suicide would seem to confirm his guilt.
