THE CRUELEST LIE
Bo LeDeaux, at seventeen, is forced by fate and cruel
circumstances to battle the ruthless Sheriff Gilbow Brown, a
man who uses the law to fuel his insatiable appetite for

Bo’s confrontation with the sheriff is complicated by the
murderous scheming of Tommy Sligo, a madman acting on the
commands of an unforgiving god, and by Bo’s own wild mother,
Ruby LeDeaux, who fights to preserve her ebbing sanity long
