“Features as much sound and fury as a summer movie blockbuster.”-Kirkus Reviews

How can a man step off a bus at a rest stop in small-town Maine and disappear? McMorrow wants to know but nobody else seems to care about the fate of P. Ray Mantis. Jack presses and soon finds himself up against small-town hoodlums, a sketchy police chief, and an assortment of street people. It’s the underbelly of Scanesett, Maine, and in it McMorrow may have finally met his match.
