Against odds like these the objective is simple – stay alive.
No matter what.
In the deep, dark woods, a low-rent gang murders with impunity. A bad place to be trapped, a bad time to be there, a good time to stay invisible. But Seth Mathias is a grown-up Boy Scout, and when an innocent girl is threatened with rape and murder, duty and honor call.
Over eighteen hours of relentless fight and flight, through killings descending from chivalry to self-defense to murder to rage to vengeance, Seth finds strengths he never imagined he had, and a brutality he wished he’d never discovered.
But with no way to escape, with no chance of rescue, strength and brutality are the essentials of survival.
And even when it’s over, it isn’t.
Re-release coming soon!

Book 1 of the Seth Mathias Trilogy
When Seth Mathias, a lonely middle-aged widower, takes a break at a remote, deserted lake, he is plunged into a nightmare world for which nothing in his life has prepared him. Seth finds himself trapped between the casual brutality of small-town bullies and the ruthlessness of corruption in the highest political places, and Anne is forced to decide whether to do her job – or do what’s right. Through uncompromising writing and a fine sense of detail, John Darrin has drawn a portrait of two strangers working together when their lives spiral out of control. It isn’t easy for a novel to be both a relentless thriller and an emotional character study, but The Law of the Pack pulls it off.
The Law of the Pack is a real thriller, with all the suspense and action that reader’s love. Human predators, offbeat victims, a middle-aged Boy Scout, and a pseudo-lesbian sheriff who knows her business. With a great plot line and fast pace, this one catches your attention and hangs on, making the reader turn page after page. No disappointments here. I recommend it.
