When Bill Travis meets with Death Row inmate Norman Howell for the simple expedient of getting him to sign some trust account documents, Howell lets Bill in on an explosive secret, and one that may very well bring down Texas’ most revered leader—its Governor. More
When Death Row inmate Norman Howell drops a tidbit about how he and his father once helped the current Texas Governor get rid of competing Galveston Vietnamese fishermen through the use of high-powered explosives, Bill Travis has to decide whether to kick this particular sleeping dog or let him lie. But when the Governor’s men come calling, all hell breaks loose.
