A safehouse ablaze.
4 dead federal agents.
A missing federal witness.
2 wounded agents clinging to life.
Another day at the office for Sheriff Tom Myers.
When a secret joint FBI/US Marshal safehouse in Sommersville, Georgia is attacked, federal witness Bates Hewell flees custody in the confusion and heads for the hills. The authorities descend on the county in search of their prize witness, now classified as “In the Wind!” The FBI and US Marshals Service are convinced that their material witness is hiding out in the wilds of undeveloped Sommersville County, an area with its own set of laws and rules. Can local sheriff, Tom Myers find him and bring him in before a band of hired killers do?
Tom Myers’ story began in EVIL WAYS and continued in DEADLY GAMES! but the Sommersville sheriff’s adventures are far from over. Sheriff Tom Myers returns in IN THE WIND, the first in a new series of mystery/thriller novellas from award-winning author Bobby Nash and BEN Books. Snow’s FBI Agent Tom “Mac” McClellan guest stars in this story.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I wrote my first novel, EVIL WAYS, Sheriff Tom Myers was a secondary character. He wasn't the lead, but was important to the story. My second novel, DEADLY GAMES! took place in the same fictional town where I set Evil Ways. There was no plan to use the sheriff in the story, but the character kept chittering away in the back of my brain that this is where they should call the cops. So… Sheriff Myers and his deputies returned.
I thought that would be their last appearance, but like all good characters, Tom Myers would pop up every so often and remind me he was still around and ask when he was getting his own book. Eventually, a story popped into my head that was a good fit and Tom Myers and his deputies returned. I was surprised by the reaction to their first story and am currently working on a second Tom Myers Mystery. Fifteen years after his first appearance, Tom Myers gets his own series at last.
