An award-winning story of hope and compassion at the end of the world from Annie Reed, author of PRETTY LITTLE HORSES.
Time is running out for Jimmy, an old Nevada motel owner. He still runs The Forty Winks pretty much the way his daddy did. Jimmy intends to keep on with business as usual as long as he can, even as the sun grows dimmer each day and the rest of civilization falls apart around him. He counts himself lucky that the lawlessness plaguing Las Vegas hasn’t touched him yet.
Then a nervous traveler and his little boy check in, and Jimmy’s shotgun goes missing.
"Annie Reed draws a pitch-perfect portrait of the Nevada desert and peoples it with folks so real I want to drive out by Vegas and try to find the Forty Winks Motel and check up on how everyone's doing. Its quiet voice and fast pace weave together to make any reader care." —Cindie Geddes, author
“You can’t go wrong with Annie Reed. Her deftly-crafted tales—with characters as memorable as the stories themselves—far surpass most of what’s out there. She deserves a wide audience.” –Michael J. Totten, author of RESURRECTION
