The Overview: Beware of Spoilers…
J. Todd Scott pulls us in from the first sentence and proceeds to unfold his story from the perspective of believable characters with a slow burn to a dramatic conclusion that leaves us satisfied and yet hoping for more. (Rest easy, more stories are coming about those who survive.)
The Far Empty is a modern day western-noir wrapped around a mystery (mysteries) with enough action and suspense to satisfy the most critical reader.
When Chris Cherry, a new deputy in Murfee, Texas, finds the handcuffed, skeletal remains of a body in a remote area not far from the Mexico/Texas border, he starts an investigation. It’s an investigation that will uncover secrets best left hidden and may cost him his life.
The Far Empty hooked me from the first sentence. I loved every page and give it my highest recommendation. J. Todd Scott is the real deal.
