About the Book

In New Orleans, Texas Ranger John Q is out of his jurisdiction, and possibly out of his depth. After a series of murders it seems that every time he asks questions there’s trouble. But who could be trying to set him up, and why, and who can he turn to in a city where loyalties and family ties rule?

Infused with the rhythms of its iconic setting, The Contract is a thriller which keeps you gripped and guessing all the way to its endgame.

  • JM Gulvin

    Born in the UK, JM Gulvin divides his time between Wales and the western United States. He is the author of many previous novels, as well as Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's bestselling travel book Long Way Down. The Long Count is his first John Q mystery and he is currently at work on the follow up. He is married and has two daughters.
“Gulvin hits bullseye on plot, characters and style . . .with echoes of Elmore Leonard and even Cormac McCarthy.”
- Thriller Books Journal
“The sense of time and place propels the story well beyond a simple tale of a Texas Ranger, and the final pages are truly chilling.”
- Crime Review
