Bo's brother, Ethan Paxton, and his private eye friend, Jake Delgado, both from far-away California, search the unfamiliar environs of the Kentucky hill country for Bo, with the doomed wannabe mobster in tow. In a race against time and the Chicago mob, they battle an unforgiving lake, thunderstorms and poisonous snakes, all with the local sheriff and the FBI hot on their trail. Bo's fate will lie with whomever finds him first.
Ron Parham has done it again. His second Ethan Paxton suspense novel, Copperhead Cove, is just as exciting and entertaining as his first foray in the genre: Molly’s Moon — maybe even more so. This time his hero is back east, in the wilds of Kentucky, trying to save his older brother Bo and family from a nasty situation in which they have gotten on the wrong side of a vengeful and death-dealing wing of the Chicago mob. Once more delivering his story from multiple points of view, Parham scores big with another fast-reading page-turner.
