Roll Me Away

Tim Harrison is back, years away from his problems in Whipping Post. He’s now a company driver for Saxon Brothers Trucking in Dallas Texas. He has settled down on a ranch outside of Cave Creek Arizona. He and his dog, Rory, are assigned a steady route between El Paso Texas and Tijuana Mexico, but Tim’s still fighting demons from the rape and murder of his wife.

When a fellow Saxon Brothers trucker is murdered by a theft ring working out of El Paso Texas, Tim’s old buddy, the ever colorful JD Tolliver, gets involved in hunting down the gang. In the process, JD winds up in the hospital.

Now with two employees having been attacked by the same theft ring, and no word from the police, the owner of Saxon’s, John Saxon, gets involved. He enlists Tim’s aid, pulling him back into a situation and a life Tim is not sure he wants to become involved with. He has other things, like possibly a new love life, on his mind.

Roll Me Away by Alan N Webber

Book review by Philip Zozzaro “Life has kicked many people in the balls; its part of living.”

Life on the open road appeals to Tim Harrison. He can drive his route from east to west while enjoying the idyllic scenery of the southwestern US. Solitude also provides him time with his thoughts, often consisting of memories of his late wife, Amy. The tragic murder of Amy set off a chain reaction of grief and death in his family that Tim is still recuperating from years after. Despite nearing the denouement of his stages of grieving, anger and a desire for justice still grip his mind. The robbery and murder of a fellow trucker alarms Tim and spurs Tim’s best friend to an ill-fated attempt at revenge. Despite a new flame in his life, Tim is reluctantly pulled into an attempt at payback against a pair of ruthless criminals.

The theme of retribution runs strong throughout this winning crime thriller. The story unfolds from the perspective of both heroes and villains as a spontaneous act of violence during a crime triggers an avalanche of unintended consequences for both sides. Tim enters the narrative as a flawed individual, attempting to rebuild his tattered existence in the years following his wife’s untimely passing. The possibility of a new romance reveals a different side of him. Tim is unwavering in his loyalty to his friends and will act accordingly when standing up for them, even risking his life. The story combines equal elements of humor, drama, and suspense as Tim and fellow truckers look to avenge a fallen brother. The rocking music and lyrics of Bob Seger could serve as a companion soundtrack to this excellent book.
