Description

From the author of Dirty Sally and Body Scissors, a no-holds- barred thriller set in the seedy underbelly of Austin, Texas

In his pulse-quickening new thriller, Michael Simon continues to do for Austin what James Ellroy has done for L.A. It's 1995 and Texas has a new governor, the heir to a political dynasty. As pols and lobbyists converge on the capital, a former child star and recent porn actress is found murdered and a thirteen-year-old boy is sent out to make a treacherous living on the streets. This is just some of what Dan Reles, Austin Homicide's only New Yorker and only Jew- and its leading loose cannon-has to deal with in Simon's latest gritty mystery.
