My Reivew of Nine Years Gone by Chris Culver
Nine years ago, Steve Hale saved the love of his life from her abusive and very powerful stepfather by helping her disappear and framing him for her murder. Today, that stepfather is dead, executed by the state of Missouri for a crime he didn’t commit, and Steve has a loving wife, a little girl who depends on him, a home, a career – everything he ever wanted and believed he could never have. He also has a new voice mail from a woman the rest of the world believes is dead.
A reunion with his former girlfriend quickly sours when Steve realizes that her stories don't match up – the one she told nine years ago and the one she told today.
As he unravels her twisted knot of lies, he discovers that events are already in motion and plans are being carried out. Unwittingly, he’s hurtling toward a dark secret – one some very dangerous people are willing to protect at any cost.

I did enjoy this book. Chris Culver has a very nice writing style.
The story although seeming to focus on one character, is actually about three friends. Three friends that made a horrible mistake and are now going to have to live with the consequences of their past.
While the one male lead seems to be targeted more than the others, all three have to deal with the past coming back. Disrupting the lives that they have all built for themselves.
A thrilling ride through the eyes of a man guilty of many crimes. A man that will do anything to protect his newly formed family. A man who will kill if needed.
