DESCRIPTION :
The #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces a new, unforgettable character: Archer, a straight-talking former World War II soldier fresh out of prison for a crime he didn't commit.

It's 1949. When World War II veteran Aloysius Archer is released from Carderock Prison, he is sent to Poca City on parole with a short list of do's and a much longer list of don'ts: do report regularly to his parole officer, don't go into bars, certainly don't drink alcohol, do get a job--and don't ever associate with loose women.

The small town quickly proves more complicated and dangerous than Archer's years serving in the war or his time in jail. Within a single night, his search for gainful employment--and a stiff drink--leads him to a local bar, where he is hired for what seems like a simple job: collect a debt owed to a powerful local businessman, Hank Pittleman.

Soon Archer finds out that recouping the debt won't be so easy: The indebted man has a furious grudge against Hank and refuses to pay; Hank's quick-witted mistress has her own designs on Archer; and both the unforgiving Hank and Archer's stern parole officer, Miss Crabtree, are keeping a close eye on him. When a murder takes place right under Archer's nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict and Archer realizes that this murder could send him right back to prison . . . if he doesn't use every skill in his arsenal to track down the real killer himself.
