Only his father’s death could get tough guy James Hart back to his rundown hometown of Crystal Springs, Florida. When he arrives, he learns that he has missed his father’s funeral, but is just in time to get tangled up in his brother’s life of petty, and not so petty, crime. A Tree Born Crooked is the story of James’s return to the life and family he finds he can never really leave.
