There are times when the truth invites evil, and there are times when the truth can get you killed. Few residents in the secluded mountain-town of Winston, Colorado, have kind words to say about local troublemaker Sean Coleman. He's a bully, a drunk, and a crime-show addicted armchair detective with an overactive imagination. After a night of poor judgment, Sean finds himself the sole witness to the unusual suicide of a mysterious stranger. With the body whisked away in the chilling rapids of a raging river, no one believes Sean's account. When his claim is met with doubt and mockery from the people of Winston, Sean embarks on a far-reaching crusade that takes him across the country in search of the dead man's identity and personal vindication. He hopes to find redemption and the truth---but sometimes the truth is better left unknown.

Though the story stands on its own, there's a definite tie-in to From a Dead Sleep. This short excerpt offers a glimpse at that connection.
Let the speculation begin!
From a Dead Sleep
“Most notably, he was wanted in connection with the murder of two US border agents down in Texas. Seems he’d been under the radar for the past couple of years, going by the name of Alvar Sanchez. The Feds didn’t know he was the same guy. He dyed his hair silver, wore glasses he probably didn’t need, and carried a plethora of phony identification.”
