The phone call to the Big Lake Sheriff's office was no more than a curiosity to begin with. A couple calling to check on the welfare of a bruised and battered young man they had found stranded along the highway. A young man who claimed to be Sheriff Weber's son. But when a mysterious stranger arrives in town soon afterward and is evasive about his reasons for being there, the sheriff's instincts tell him the man has come looking for trouble.
Little does Weber know that those two events will set in motion a series of accusations, crimes, and confrontations that will have two experienced lawmen facing off against each other, expose a history of police corruption and brutality stretching across state lines, and lead to violence that will traumatize one of Big Lake's outstanding citizens.
By the time the smoke clears, the US Attorney's office and the FBI will face off with bad cops and a town full of people with a history of turning their heads and ignoring what has been happening for a long time. And when it is over, two communities will be changed forever.
One reviewer has referred to the Big Lake mystery series as “Mayberry Meets Twin Peaks." It’s a combination of humor and intrigue that launched author Nick Russell’s first Big Lake book into Amazon’s Top 100 Paid Kindle books for over 78 days, and Big Lake Fugitive, the fourteenth book in this popular series, is sure to be a hit, too!
