Key Features


Twelve-year-old Foster knows in his gut that Dax Ganey, the man dating his widowed mother, is a bad seed. When a mysterious stranger arrives on their Alabama farm, Foster believes he has found an ally against Dax.

The stranger, a former Army Ranger who is rambling across the country after serving in Iraq, proves a fascinating mentor, full of wisdom and secrets. Dax soon has reason to resent not just him and Foster but also Foster's mother. A spurned Dax will be a dangerous enemy, but Foster is becoming increasingly aware that the stranger could be just as dangerous, if not more so.
