Two drifters on the prowl in a stolen Caddy ragtop. A woman on the run from a killing she couldn’t help. And a tough but aging Texas Ranger with a nose for chasing down fugitives. Put them all on the road in a chase across Texas… then watch the mayhem unfold in a twisting tale full of surprises at every turn.
This is the award-winning novel readers say they can’t—and won’t—put down.
Note: This Special Edition of Robbers has an Author’s Preface written specifically for the e-book.
