Tucker, a problem-solving gunfighter still reeling from the bloody death of his childhood sweetheart wife, must contend with his survivor’s guilt while dodging bullets in the increasingly violent Music City.
Weeks after Tucker foils an assassination attempt on a client, he’s confronted at his remote country home by men intent on killing him.
Meanwhile, Tucker is forced to relive his secret violent past during an interview with a Nashville billionaire who wants his wife’s “accidental” death investigated.
But, before Tucker can take on a new assignment, he must deal with who wants to kill him and why.
Here’s what readers are saying about “The Other Side of Bad.”
This is a great, fun ride in the spirit of Lee Child and Steven Hunter but with the more advanced atmospherics of James Lee Burke. C AndrewsGreat new read for Childs and Crais fans!! P Godden
R. O. Barton shows promise of being hailed right up there with Lee Child, Michael Connelly, James Lee Burke. The Other Side Of Bad was one good read!! S Prater
Praise for “The Other Side of Bad”:
The Other Side of Bad, by R.O. Barton, like its title, is a gotcha; gotcha and won’t let you go until you’ve been through an assassination attempt in Nashville, a face-off in a Louisiana biker bar, the mother of all drug-deals-gone-bad in the wilds of Mexico, and more between the scenes action than a Rambo night out.
Barton casts his characters with disarming frankness—characters large and
eccentric—with arcane talents and a taste for brinkmanship.
The Other Side of Bad is visual, visceral, and a trip to the other side.

Here’s what readers are saying about R. O. Barton and Valley of Redemption.
“Once every five years, I read a new author who redefines his genre and sets a new bar for those who follow. Enter R.O. Barton. He has restored my faith in great characters, realistic plot, fantastic insight into life, and crazy authenticity in tough guy swagger. Here’s an author who has clearly lived the world he writes… who knows mortal combat and all its consequences from the inside out.” C Andrews
“Jack Reacher may have met his match with Tucker!” G Wallace
“I am a big fan of Robert Crais, Michael Connelly, and Lee Child, to mention a few. So I am accustomed to a high level of quality of character development and pacing and details of all kinds. R.O. Barton’s work is right up there with the big guys!” Dstar
