|About the Book|
Car tag chronicles the trails of the Debecki family as it comes to the end of a nine year ordeal that began with young Billy Debeckis killing of a police officer and the efforts of his older brother, drew, to find some way to spare him the death penalty. As much a study in character and in the Nevada way as it is the unveiling of a mystery covered over by time and grief. Car Tag powerfully engages with the somber recognition of lost youth and hopes. Wending his way through a series of backdrops, from the open desert near Rhyolite, Nevada to the Nevada Supreme Court, author H. Lee Barnes gives a study in the chords of memory, stretched thin through time and tragedy but still preserving a connection that may save Billys life.
