|Carl Herbold is a cold-blooded psychopath who has just escaped the penitentiary where he was serving a life sentence. Bent on revenge, he's going back to where he began--Blewer County, Texas...
Born deaf, lately widowed, Anna Corbett fights to keep the ranch that is her son's birthright, unaware that she is at the center of Herbold's horrific scheme--and that her world of self-imposed isolation is about to explode...
Drifter Jack Sawyer arrives at Anna's ranch asking for work, hoping to protect the innocent woman and her son from Herbold's rage. But Sawyer can't outrun the secrets that stalk him--or the day of reckoning awaiting them all...
Revolves around a twenty-two year old mystery that unites seemingly unrelated individuals and pits ruthless, revenge-seeking prisoners against a young deaf widow and her six-year-old son.
Anna Corbett, deaf since birth, is aided by a laconic, knife-toting drifter named Jack Sawyer, who appears from out of the blue at the precise time that Anna's safe, silent world turns deadly. Jack's past is shrouded in mystery, making Anna uncertain if he's someone she should entrust with her cattle ranch, her life, her love.
The violent passages in this book struck a nerve with some readers, and although I never wanted to offend, and regret being unable to please all of the people all of the time, I don't apologize for the content of Unspeakable. It was my intention to draw a stark contrast between the evil nature of the prisoners and prisoners and the mayhem they create, and Anna, who is encapsulated in silence and innocence. SB
