Mysteries tied to history and setting.
As author R. (Rich) Lawson Gamble and I discuss in this interview, the scene that he reads to us from his book The Dark Road is reminiscent of a right-of-passage ritual. Tolliver is just out of the FBI Academy and as you’ll hear, somewhat out of his depth in the unforgiving Arizona landscape.
Rich’s Zack Tolliver series has seven books, with an eighth to be released very shortly. The Dark Road takes us back to Tolliver’s origins and we meet the man who will become his law enforcement partner and friend. In the interview you’ll hear Rich explain the very personal reason why each book in the series focuses on a new location.
