Nothing Short of Dying (Clyde Barr #1)


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 received a frantic phone call for help from Jen, the youngest of his three older sisters. Then the line goes dead. Clyde doesn’t know how much time he has. He doesn’t know where Jen is located. He doesn’t even know who has her. All he knows is that nothing short of dying will stop him from saving her.

Tagging along with Clyde on this strange, desperate, against-all-odds rescue mission is a young woman named Allie whose motivations for hurtling into harm’s way are fascinatingly complex. As the duo races against the clock, it is Allie who gets Clyde to see what he has become and what he can be.


I came across this book in me to be read pile and I am sorry it has taken so long to get to it. This was a very good book. Once I began to read the book, I did not want to put it down. It opens with Clyde Barr getting a call from his sister asking for help. That is all it takes to put the one-man army into action that takes him across Colorado and other parts West. He is on a search and destroys mission and he is not making any friends along the even his older sisters really don’t want him around them. Clyde is surprised to find that not only has towns and other things has changed since he has been in prison, but also some friends are now are on the right side of the law. He still will do anything to find his sister but he is definitely leaving a trail behind of where he has been and not bread crumbs. With the help of a female from the bar that Jen worked at they make a good team for most of the story. A fast-paced story that takes you to the woods with true to life survival. I found this to be a good story that like I said at the beginning I was sorry I took so long to get to. A very good read. I received this book from I gave it 5 stars Follow us
