The Mark of Cain (Paperback)
In a world that has changed much during the six years he's been in prison, Ronnie Harrison struggles to piece together a new life from the wreckage of his old one. As a condition of his early parole, Ronnie must stay at a halfway-house for ex-cons called Camp Eden, where things are not exactly what they seem. As Ronnie realizes that he may still be imprisoned, a man from his past, Travis Campbell, shows up to bring Ronnie back into the world that led him to prison the first time. A rough world of moonshine, marijuana, and meth, which also happens to be the Harrison family's business. Eventually, Ronnie's struggle for a new life brings everything to a head in a violent revealing conclusion.
Tyler Keith's debut novel is delivered in a deft hand, detailing the landscape of his native Florida panhandle as intimately as his complex characters.
