FOR BRANTLEY COLTON HIS crusade was over There was nothing in the abyss left for him Whatever he had once believed in had become a lie There was no light at the end of the tunnel, just a long highway ahead, a dark road without signposts to direct him Where would he go from there The finality in his soul belied some joy in the closing moments It was over, he could dieFOR BRANTLEY COLTON HIS crusade was over There was nothing in the abyss left for him Whatever he had once believed in had become a lie There was no light at the end of the tunnel, just a long highway ahead, a dark road without signposts to direct him Where would he go from there The finality in his soul belied some joy in the closing moments It was over, he could die now but he couldn t die happy It had only been a few hours since he had put the Winter Glade Motel in his rearview, but it seemed longer Colton drove the desolate highway but felt tired and needed sleep The air conditioning was on high to fend off the humid Florida evening, the air against his face was the only thing preventing him from drifting into dangerous sleep, even so he contemplated the series of events that had him traveling down 1 75 in the middle of the night with the blood stains of the murdered man still present on his shirt He had used an alias to register at the motel, paid in cash, but feared something had been left behind which could tie him to the murder and needed time to finish the job at hand and his sloppy second guessing had placed him in peril Colton had never been one for prayer, but felt like it was a good time to drop to his knees, to confess his crime and ask for forgiveness Not that it would have done any good for him.

This was very good. But it was a difficult read. I never could get used to the style, in the sense that it it wasn't a page turner for me. I had to take breaks. But, the style aside, it was still a good book.There are 3 points of view.The killersBrantley Colton (friend of victum looking for vengence) and the FBI agent John RestonI had a hard time with the switch between characters. But each character was well developed, and interesting.Parts of this story are brutal. The serial killers actions a [...]
Rodd Clark paints a dark and vivid imagination for this 'Short Ride to Hell' mystery. I have read 'Rubble and the Wreckage' which was a very entertaining read so I just had to get my hands on this one and I wasn't disappointed.The adventure for Brantley Colton starts off this epic journey down a tiresome dark road. His nightmare were over and he could feel the humid wetness sticking to his body through a blood drenched shirt. The dead man was not far away in his rear view mirror. Did he leave an [...]
Setting this one aside for now. I can't get into it.

SHORT RIDE TO HELL is the story of killers, and survivors: Brantley Colton, a walking dead man, is stalking a serial killer. Karen Whitten is an unpretentious waitress who by novel’s end has begun to see deep into the soul of two men. Rust Eyler is an unrelenting sexual murderer, broken in all the wrong places. John Resto [...]
