Mississippi, 1951. The last place any sane man wants to visit is Thebes State Penal Farm. Of the few who make the journey there, even fewer return.

But when an old friend disappears inside Thebes, ex-marine and Arkansas State Police Sgt. Earl Swagger takes a personal interest in the case. As he infiltrates the prison, what he experiences defies his wildest nightmares—a savage world where death is the only salvation. As tough as he is, Swagger barely escapes with his life—and his mind—intact. But he’s not going to stay away for long. Recruiting six of the hardest, deadliest gunmen ever known, bloody vengeance is soon at hand. Because Earl Swagger is going back to Thebes—and Hell follows with him.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kevin | 2/17/2014

    " Page-turner, good story and characters, excellent period/geographic 'feel', spoiled by ridiculous 'gun porn' ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Evie | 2/14/2014

    " One of the best books I have ever read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Guzclues | 2/12/2014

    " This book is my favorite. I've read it 4 times over the years. Set in the 50's Mississippi, the story is well written and the characters are topnotch. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about justice and retribution. The book has some harsh and violent episodes but they are part of the story's reality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Marti | 1/31/2014

    " This is a very violent book. Part of the violence is to right an injustice where, in the Mississippi of 1951, there is a horrible prison for black men called Thebes State Penal Farm, located in the swamps, almost impossible to reach, except by water. A lawyer friend of Earl Swagger goes there to get some information for a client, and Earl bails him out of trouble, but then can't forget the awful conditions, and rounds up six more gunfighters to go back to Thebes, set the prisoners free, and tear it down. Two strong enemies are Section Boss, and Bigman, an albino of incredible strength. "
