A few nights before the book opens, Jake Halligan and his tough-ass sister, Frankie, were kidnapped by a “sadistic millionaire” who has a vendetta against their family. They’re offered a deal: Spend the next 24 hours in the backwoods of Idaho, while being hunted by rich men with the latest lethal weaponry. If they survive, they go free. And if they don’t, well, let’s just say the chances of anyone finding their bodies are few and fewer.
As The brother-sister act, manage to escape their captor, but to what? They’re broke, on the run, and hunted by every cop in the great northwest. If they have any chance of making it, they need to carry out the wishes of a corrupt prosecutor named Karen.
Kolakowski has a talent for keeping the plot moving even faster than his characters can hot-wire a car. It’s one confrontation after the other as the adrenaline spiked prose keeps you turning the pages to see what’s going to happen to the hapless siblings, not to mention all those who get in their way. Billed as “a neo-western noir with incredible twists” Rattlesnake Rodeo (love the title—think about it) will not disappoint Kolakowski’s fans, as he deftly sets up a battle of good and evil between the haves and the have-nots.
