Alice - Book II Texas Trilogy
Alice is the 2nd in the Texas Trilogy, following Capt Lamar McNelly as he hunts down the vicious men who walk among us. Book one rode shotgun with a killer. Book two gives us more insight to McNelly's mind. He is seen through the lens of his counterpart and authentic compadre, Lieutenant Chucho Zarate, as they work to get ahead of an unpredictable murderer, who seems to disappear with nightfall. More
Detective Lieutenant Chucho Zarate picks up the molecules of a decaying corpse drifting on the midnight air of Christmas Eve. No one in the small church notices, but his nose never lies; he knows some poor bastard has met a violent demise.
What he doesn't know is this murder will unlock an internal gate holding back a spree killer, soon to be set loose upon Southeast Texas.
As the bodies pile up and the frustration mounts, the governor orders in the Texas Rangers to end the madness, and Captain Lamar McNelly, the synesthetic lawman, leads the team.
Together, McNelly and Zarate find themselves in a race to catch a phantom, with the next victim just a happenstance away.
