New from Down & Out Books: THE RIGHTEOUS PATH by James D.F. Hannah

TAMPA, Fla. - July 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that THE RIGHTEOUS PATH, the first crime novel in the Parker County series by James D.F. Hannah, has been published on July 26, 2021 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


Sheriff Matt Simms' days are numbered. Diagnosed with liver cancer, and waiting for a transplant, Simms remains steadfast to the things that matter: his friends, his wife, and his duty to protect the citizens of Parker County.

The series of home invasions on the elderly is sudden, savage, and seemingly without motive. Shaken to his core by the brutality, Simms delves deeper into the attacks, discovering a family's secrets and a connection to a decades-old crime. Then there's the missing teen-ager, and a mother unsure what's happened to her daughter. Meanwhile, Matt struggles to help his friend and former deputy in the wake of a life-changing injury that has driven the man to the brink of despair.

As events escalate and turn explosive and deadly, Simms must put everything at risk—even his own life—to catch the killers.
