Summary
"A combat veteran returned from war, Thad Broom can't leave the hardened world of Afghanistan behind, nor can he forgive himself for what he saw there. His mother, April, is haunted by her own demons, a secret trauma she has carried for years. Between them is Aiden McCall, loyal to both but unable to hold them together. Connected by bonds of circumstance and duty, friendship and love, these three lives are blown apart when Aiden and Thad witness the accidental death of their drug dealer and a riot of dope and cash drops in their laps. On a meth-fueled journey to nowhere, they will either find the grit to overcome the darkness or be consumed by it"--
Summary
Unable to reacclimate after a traumatic service in Afghanistan, combat veteran Thad Broom becomes estranged from his haunted mother and finds support from a fellow drug-using friend before the murder of their drug dealer leaves them with a fortune in cash and drugs
