Who will guard the guards themselves?
John Whicher is a US Marshal, not long out of training - barely 12 months back from serving in the Persian Gulf war. In south Texas he's working his first case when a multiple shooting on the US-Mexico border leaves five undocumented immigrants and one American dead.
The county decides to limit any inquest - money's tight, deaths among undocumented immigrants are notoriously hard to crack. But Whicher, in his first case, is not about to see justice denied.
Fans of John Sanford and James Lee Burke, don't miss... An American Kill.
The Whicher series can be listened to in any order.
