Called "tough, dark and gritty" by James Ellroy, Michael Simon's debut Dirty Sally introduced readers to Detective Dan Reles, Austin Homicide's only New Yorker and only Jew.
In Body Scissors, the Texas capital catches war fever as Operation Desert Storm kicks off, while Reles fights a few battles of his own-against his own department's bigotry, a drug lord, a slew of mysterious deaths, and a well-connected gunman.
