The body of Edgar 'Bloody' Watson lay face down in a pool of his own blood. Had he been lynched or murdered? Or was this a killing to put an end to years of fear? Was Watson a cold-blooded killer or a man whose good name was unfairly tarnished and whose slaughter was as unjust as it was bloody? When Watson's son Lucius returns to the treacherous wilderness of the Florida Everglades searching for the truth, the lawless inhabitants, alligator poachers and moonshiners hold their secrets close, and a deep uneasiness drifts through the region, like a low swamp mist. Lost Man's River is the second part of the 'Watson' trilogy.
This copy is in very good condition, with a hint of fading to the wrapper's spine.
