D.J. is furious when a pack of dogs attack his helpless dog Hero that was tied to a post while he was in a store. Fearful that Hero will die at the vet’s, D.J. considers how to take revenge against the dogs he learns are owned by Beau Krockner and his brutal son.
While hoping for Hero’s recovery, D.J. also hears that Zeke Zeering, an old hermit, has been arrested on charges of planning to dynamite a new irrigation dam. D.J. is confident that Zeke wouldn’t do that, and sets out to prove it. His investigation turns up various suspects with possible motives, but no proof.
A number of unexpected turns make matters worse for D.J. Then a series of hard rains creates a massive mud slide that suddenly changes everything.
This ninth book in the D. J. Dillon series shows how D.J. learns a hard lesson about seeking revenge.
A glossary is included in the back of the book.
