November Road

From the publisher: "Frank Guidry’s luck has finally run out. A loyal street lieutenant to New Orleans' mob boss Carlos Marcello, Guidry has learned that everybody is expendable. But now it's his turn—he knows too much about the crime of the century: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Within hours of JFK’s murder, everyone with ties to Marcello is turning up dead, and Guidry suspects he's next. With few good options, Guidry hits the road to Las Vegas, to see an old associate—a dangerous man who hates Marcello enough to help Guidry vanish. Guidry knows that the first rule of running is 'don’t stop,' but when he sees a beautiful housewife on the side of the road with a broken-down car, two little daughters and a dog in the back seat, he sees the perfect disguise to cover his tracks from the hit men on his tail. It's an American story: two strangers meet to share the open road west, a dream, a hope—and find each other on the way. Another rule—fugitives shouldn't fall in love, especially with each other. But now Guidry doesn’t want to just survive, he wants to really live, maybe for the first time. And it might get them both killed."
