If the chain gang, miserable living conditions, or the barely passable food wasn’t bad enough the three weeks left before his execution made Thomas Lanton seize the opportunity to escape an easy one. Sure he killed his brother-in-law, but it was in self-defense and his lawyer was a joke. Running is the only option.
As luck would have it Thomas comes across a small farm and Hank, a very lonely young man hiding his preference for men. It appears Hank is willing to hide Thomas forever if need be. It’s a sweet set up if only the cops would stop searching.
Man-Hunt reveals a gritty, character driven tale of ill fated opportunity verses gentle acceptance. The storyline has a realistic, hard bitten quality giving readers an interesting balance of seizing the day from two very different perspectives. Not a true romance in the literal sense, though each man does receive a measure of satisfaction when all is said and done. Man-Hunt is an original.
