Here's a brief description of the book:
It is late in the afternoon of Friday, August 27, 1967. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, 22-year-old Ricardo Garcia has just made a terrible mistake.
Garcia was warned of the consequences that awaited, but in a moment of anger he purchased with his pistol the eternal enmity of the Brandon family of Clinton, Louisiana. Though his home is more than one thousand miles removed from Clinton, the distance will provide Garcia with no comfort and no safety.
To the Brandons of East Feliciana Parish, family is everything. Three generations soon find themselves in hot pursuit of Garcia. Only one man, a disgraced Clinton cop, stands in the way of their plans.
The Face of his Brother is more than a simple story of revenge. The hunt for Garcia brings to the surface the violence, betrayals and tragedies that have torn the Brandon family apart. At its heart, this is the story of an old Louisiana family and of the secrets and scandals that roil beneath the surface.
And here's what readers are saying:

"When I finished The Face of His Brother, I immediately turned back to the beginning and started to read it again. [...] Don't even think about picking up this wonderful book unless you are willing to enter into a personal relationship with it, one that will take you to unexpected places, at times uncomfortable, yet always drawing you in to discover more about justice, and family, than you could have imagined."
— Lucie, Amazon Reviewer
