In Last Stop to Nowhere, Jim Nash is back, and this time he’s bent on revenge for his murdered wife. With a drowned hitch-hiker in tow who manages to convince him that he should drop everything and help her find her missing brother, Jim is drawn into the woman’s world of crooked friends, South American sicarios, and her innocent parents. Before he can say no, he finds her in his bed, in his life, and in no mood for him to say no as she draws him deeper into her world on the quest for her missing brother.

Wonder no more.
Twisted Sisters 3 – Marina Mystery consists of the backstory on how Jim Nash and Allie Sands hooked up. I had a number of queries regarding how the two met. Within Twisted Sisters 3 lies the answer. I don’t feel that it’s out of place coming third in the Twisted Sisters series. My read suggestion is that it be number three, but of course you can read it first if you choose.
Frank’s phone rarely rings when he’s on the road. When it does, he usually lets whoever is on the other end go to voice mail. This time it’s different, and after hanging up, he forces himself to ride three hundred miles out of his way in the dark of night to get to a woman asking for his help. After a walk through a truck stop populated by lot lizards and their customers, Frank learns the truth about the lost soul he is helping to locate.
