Summary
"Nearing fifty, Joe Ransom won't slow down, not in his pickup, not with a gun--and certainly not with women." "Gary Jones estimates his own age to be about fifteen. Born luckless, he is the son of a hopeless, homeless wandering family, and he's desperate for a way out. When their paths cross, Joe offers him a chance just as his own chances have dwindled to almost nothing. Together they follow a twisting map to redemption--or ruin."--Jacket
Summary
The lives of two men--Joe Ransom, a drinking, gambling, reckless fifty-year-old, and Gary Jones, a luckless fifteen-year-old raised by an evil father and an insane mother, become intertwined in a novel of good, evil, temptation, and sacrifice
