A guilty man walks alone into the cold mountain forests of Washington State, aiming never to return. What he finds there starts a chain of events that will quickly spiral out of control.
Meanwhile in Los Angeles a woman's body is discovered, sitting bolt upright in a motel bedroom. She is dead, and her killer has left his mark. It soon becomes clear he has something to say, and a lot more work to do.

And Ward Hopkins, an ex-CIA agent recovering from the recent shocking death of his parents, is on the trail of his past, tracking down the men who destroyed everything he once held dear, and the murderer whose face he sees every time he looks in the mirror.
These three are ominous strands in a web of deadly secrets, roads to a dark history that should never have been told. There are people who will do anything to protect it. Anything at all. It's not a matter of who dies. We're all going to die.

What matters is who dies last.

4.0 The Upright Man by Michael Marshall
The Straw Men slip back into the shadows, but their presence is still felt as the hunt for The Upright Man takes center stage in this engaging thriller. Marshall keeps his readers on their mental toes, as they ponder who is a player, who is a pawn and who is being led down the rabbit hole.

4.0 The Lonely Dead
A sequel to The Straw Men this is an interesting continuation of the paranoia and conspiracy. The serial killer is interesting as well. Some of it is a bit farfetched but I found it a compelling read.
