Ann Rodick is a witness to murder. Now on death row, the murderer appoints his brother, Billy Quirter, to avenge him. So Ann goes into hiding, changes her name, her looks, and gets married. Now she is Ann Burley of Arrow Junction. But Quirter is still on her tail. But so is Bob Saywell, the local merchant who makes everybody else his business, particularly such a pretty woman as Ann. No matter that she’s married to momma’s boy, Ted. Or that the town doctor, Hugh Stewart, is also showing an interest. Saywell knows how to get what he wants. But when Quirter hits town one snowy night, all bets are suddenly off.




Harry Wells set up the bank heist with military precision. But what he hadn't figured on was the panic of his young accomplice. He didn't figure on newlywed Allan Garwith being in the right place and the right time and snatching the bag right out from under him. So when he finds out that Garwith and his young wife have suddenly answered an ad to join a carpool to San Francisco, he answers the ad as well. But so does John Benson, an F.B.I agent with a very good hunch on the stolen money. And Margaret Moore, recently divorced and anxious to get away from it all. And Miss Kennicot, man-hungry librarian out for a little adventure. This is one cross country trip that none of them will forget.

Editorial Reviews

"Like John D MacDonald, McKimmey wrote about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events... you'll only be disappointed if you don't like fast-paced plots, snappy dialogue, fleshed-out characters or enough tension to snap a bungee cord."-Allan Guthrie, Noir Originals"He wrote several outright masterpieces ... that were on the level of, or even better than, the works of better-known crime writers of his era, such as James M. Cain, David Goodis, and John D. MacDonald."-Jason Starr, LA Review of Books"You have a genuine high-type style which I much envy. It's terse, almost cryptic. A modern underwritten style..."-Phillip K. Dick in a letter to McKimmey
