Publisher's Summary

Bill Travis, an unmarried, unattached investment counselor rapidly approaching his fortieth birthday, conceives that he may not live the most exciting of lives, yet Julie Simmons, his first appointment that Monday, is deeply in trouble. She has taken a North Texas quarter horse racer and liquor baron named Archie Carpin - the last of a dynasty of criminals from the 1920's - for a ride and cleaned him out of a neat two million bucks. And thus begins the adventure of Bill's life.

Ensues a chase north across Texas to recover the money and shake the pursuit of a couple of rednecks with a penchant for rifles and rigged explosives. Yet, through all this action the compelling tale of yet another mystery-an 80-year old missing person's case-begins to unravel.

About the Author: This action/adventure mystery novel is the first of six completed novels in The Bill Travis Mysteries. With a total of twenty-one books planned for the series, including three prequels, Bill Travis, Austin, Texas' newest hero, is here to stay. George Wier has been writing for over twenty years. His most recent publishing credits include a contribution to Lone Star Noir (Akashic Books 2010). He lives in Austin, Texas with his lovely wife, Sallie.

    "OK, barely"

    I can only hope that George Wier does not depend upon thriller lovers like me to buy his books for his sole source of income.

    "Waste of time"

    Decent story. Too long and drawn out and no real substance. It kept my attention but I would not recommend this book

    "Relatively enjoyable"

    Plot well thought out but predictable. Enjpyed the style once I got used to it. More engaging towards the end. Felt that I could relate to the characters.

    "Okay"

    Just wasn't that convincing for me. Some parts were too slow and then others moved too quickly.

    "Narrator was the best part"

    This was an enjoyable thriller about a flawed hero, a beautiful but ultra-flawed woman, and an unbelievable story about Texas criminals that spans decades. George Wier was the perfect voice for this novel. It's a nice diversion from reality.

    "Okay...not great"
