Valley of Deception

264 pages6 hours


When two deputy U.S. Marshal are gunned down executing a warrant, Jake Mathews, as supervisor on the arrest is devastated. Fleeing to his farm, in Northeast Iowa, he wants nothing more than a little peace, quiet and time to think things over. No drama, no suspense and especially no violence. We don't always get what we want.

Tucked away in the woods of northeast Iowa, Zebadiah Caldwell's family has led a community of followers for the past 100 years. Their communal way of life has led to many stories and much speculation over the years. However, Marshal Mathews has stumbled onto a secret that could destroy their way of life. How far is Zebadiah willing to go to preserve his community.

When their two worlds collide something has to give. Each fights for what he believes in, but will either make it out of this adventure alive when a tormented local sheriff gets thrown into the mix. The first in a series of U.S. Marshal Jake Mathews adventures.

Reminiscent of Raylan Given on the hit TV show "Justified", Jake Mathews will bend, twist, and break the rules to survive. In a style similar to James Patterson this book will have you turning the pages well into the night.
