Description
In the tradition of Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels and featuring a lethal, ex-mercenary drifter who is most comfortable surviving in the wilderness and who puts his expertise to work racing against the clock to save his sister from a murderous meth kingpin, this "relentless thrill ride hurtles the reader into dark and interesting places" (Robert Ferrigno, New York Times bestselling author).
Sixteen years. That's how long Clyde Barr has been away from Colorado's thick forests, alpine deserts, and craggy peaks, running from a past filled with haunting memories. But now he's back, having roamed across three continents as a hunter, adventurer, soldier of fortune, and, most recently, unjustly imprisoned convict. And once again, his past is reaching out to claim him.

By the light of a flickering campfire, Clyde receives a frantic phone call from his sister Jen. No sooner has she pleaded with him to come rescue her that the line goes dead. Clyde doesn't know how much time he has, or where Jen is located, or why she needs rescuing. All he knows is that nothing short of dying will stop him from saving her.

Joining Clyde in his against-all-odds quest is a young woman named Allie whose motivations for running this gauntlet are fascinatingly complex. As the duo races against the clock, it's Allie who gets Clyde to see what he has become and what he can still be.

Vivid with the hues and scents of Colorado's backcountry, Nothing Short of Dying is, above all, "nothing short of brilliant. It grabs you from page one and simply doesn't let go" (Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector).

        October 3, 2016
        Storey’s debut novel, the launch to a series featuring underdog-champion and soldier of fortune Clyde Barr, is an explosive but not always credible adventure fueled by a heady combination of adrenaline and testosterone. Barely back in the States to settle down after a 16-year drift across three continents, including prison time in South America, Barr is off to the Colorado mountains on an all but impossible quest, smashing and slaying teams of killers and continuing to survive savage beatings and gaping wounds to save his sister, Jenny, who is in mortal danger. Barr chronicles his own propulsive tale in a matter-of-fact, nothing-can-surprise me manner. Reader Bobb has a properly husky voice, but his attitude isn’t the kind of been-there-done-that cool you might expect from the text. It’s flat and so emotionless it seems to lack empathy, even when the protagonist is blaming himself for the death of a friend. Bobb’s interpretation of the other characters is spirited and on the money, whether they are snarling, slow-witted thugs, twerpy little bullies, or kindly but tough pals from his youth. A Scribner hardcover.
