|Plot Summary of Endless River|
Five Star, Mar 2005, 25.95, 226 pp.
In Berredo, Texas, four hours from El Paso, Buck Powell pretends to be a police officer, shams the school administration, and abducts student Nathan Wheeler. The victim's seventeen years old girlfriend Amy Sterling becomes concerned about him because he never made it to the police station. Amy thinks nasty peer Zeb Mulroney, who she dated until she saw his abusive side, kidnapped Nate, but no one believes her as the evidence including two eye witnesses from the school points to his cousin Buck.
Amy's mother Lucinda persuades former El Paso cop and lover Devon Gray to investigate. Accompanied by the two human females, Devon searches the nearby mountain roads for the missing lad. However, Zeb is the mastermind behind the abduction as he plans to hurt Nate for going out with his girl.
