Blunt Force Trauma 3D 1 - Lo Res.png


"A nailbiting tale of bravery, justice, and friendship."

"I read this novel in one sitting. Yeah, it's that good!"

"A fast-moving whodunnit"

"Can't wait for the sequel!"

An innocent man doesn't run. 

He fights.


Jeff Kerr draws on his deep attachment to Texas and the great Western novel to produce the gripping crime thriller Blunt Force Trauma. Packed with authentic characters and stunning twists, Kerr’s masterfully crafted cowboy stew of action and suspense kicks off the Adam Cash series with a double-barreled bang.

Returning to small-town Pinyon, Texas after two combat tours in Afghanistan, Adam Cash sets his sights on a deputy sheriff job. But Sheriff Griff Turner, the high school bully who has despised Cash for years, is only too pleased to slam that door in his face.

Haunted by memories of war and faced with the reality that the one who got away – high school sweetheart, Edie – is now lost to him forever, Cash's personal pressure cooker boils hotter. Furious, he launches a longshot campaign for Sheriff to unseat Turner but loses in a landslide. And when Turner is found dead the very next day, all eyes—and all the evidence—point to Cash.

On the run and fighting to clear his name, Cash’s secret investigation reveals a darker truth threatening to destroy countless lives. Only Cash can catch the killer and save the innocents, even as he gasps for one last desperate shot at Edie and redemption.

A lawman murdered. A war veteran framed. A sinister plot uncovered. One last shot at redemption.

Miranda Flores is a survivor.


But she faces an impossible task: finding refuge where none exists.

Her odyssey begins with her family’s murder in El Salvador. If she stays, she’s next. America beckons, but the land of her youth has changed, now deporting, locking up, or murdering people like her. When she narrowly survives a deadly nightclub raid, Miranda knows she must flee.


Her destination: Canada. Tracking her, a murderous government agent fired by vengeance. Ahead, betrayal is a constant threat. Where can she go when no place is safe?

Refuge, a heart-pounding thriller set in a not-so-distant future, hurtles like a runaway train toward a tense finale that will leave you breathless.
