Hailed by the bestsellingwriter William Kent Krueger as “the year’s best thriller debut,” this rollercoasterread features a Jack Reacher-like drifter protagonist with lethal skills whosemission to rescue his abducted sister pits him against a meth kingpin seekingto control all the trade in the Western United States.

Sixteen years. That’s how long Clyde Barr has been away from Colorado’s thickforests, alpine deserts, and craggy peaks, running from a past filled withhaunting memories. But now he’s back, having roamed across three continents asa hunter, adventurer, soldier of fortune, and most recently, unjustlyimprisoned convict. And once again, his past is reaching out to claim him.

By the light of a flickering campfire, Clyde received a frantic phone call forhelp from Jen, the youngest of his three older sisters. Then the line goesdead. Clyde doesn’t know how much time he has. He doesn’t know where Jen islocated. He doesn’t even know who has her. All he knows is that nothing shortof dying will stop him from saving her.

Tagging along with Clyde on this strange, desperate, against-all-odds rescuemission is a young woman named Allie whose motivations for hurtling into harm’sway are fascinatingly complex. As the duo races against the clock, it is Alliewho gets Clyde to see what he has become and what he can be.

From the author dubbed byJeffery Deaver “a born storyteller” whose first novel Nothing Short ofDying was hailed as “exceptional,” “a rollercoaster read,” and“adrenaline-fueled” by publications on both sides of the Atlantic, this is ErikStorey’s next entry into the Clyde Barr series, a locomotive-paced brawler thathas its hero teaming with besieged members of a Native American reservation tothwart outlaw bikers who’re putting hundreds of thousands of lives at risk.

Clyde Barr, the drifter with lethal skills, is alone again, wandering thehighways of the American West in search of something to believe in. As summerturns to autumn, he trades his car for a horse and heads for the mountains,planning to clear his head and regain his edge with some hunting. But when heruns across an elderly sick man—a Ute Indian from a nearby reservation—Clyde’sdream of solitude is quickly dashed.

On the reservation, Clyde finds the old man’s daughter, Lawana, and grandson,Taylor, as well as a group of menacing bikers called Reapers running wild inthe economically depressed, half-abandoned village. Gripped by the desire to dogood in a hard world, Clyde offers to stay on Lawana’s ranch to help out untilher father is released from the hospital. He controls himself around thebikers, even when he sees them harass a few Native American women—but when theReapers attack a local boy Clyde has to do something. As tensions rise betweenthe locals and the Reapers, Clyde’s efforts to protect the reservation become afight for his, Lawana’s, and Taylor’s lives. And then the stakes ratchet upeven more.

In the remote Utah desert, surrounded by enemies, with no law enforcementpresence, and with communication effectively cut off, Clyde must find a way tosave his new friends, defeat the gang, and, hopefully, escape with his own skinintact. The Uprising is an edge-of-the-seat thriller, pushingits no-hold-barred hero to new levels of improvisation and bare-knuckled bluntforce.
