Matthew Hart has a temper. In his blind rage, he becomes violent and impulsive. Over the years, he’s learned to control his outbursts…mostly. But after an especially bad week, Hart snaps and kills his landlord. He goes on the run, hoping to put the murder behind him. And maybe he could have gotten away with it, had he not then killed an officer of the law. Now all of Tennessee is bearing down on him in a manhunt that will lead into the cover of the mountains as rain begins to fall.
Crossing Red is Aiden Merchant’s debut novella in crime fiction.
