Overview

Frank Quintana was born into a niche between two societies and accepted by neither. His father was Hispanic, his mother Anglo, and in a socially divided town like Halliburton, he would be forever relegated to cutting grass and doing menial jobs. Then he discovered a way out: excel at football, win a scholarship, become quarterback for a professional team. Along the way, he would marry the girl of his dreams, Gina Westcott. Together, they would escape the social quagmire that enveloped Halliburton.

Editorial Reviews

Jerry Bylander
Wow!! This new book by Al Alexander gets you hooked from the start. This is one of his best books to date. It provides great insight into the mixed culture of the South Texas Gulf Coast- a world most of us barely know. I found that I could barely put it down. Guaranteed to keep you up late reading.

Clean Kill establishes an accurate, if slightly exaggerated, atmosphere of small town life in south Texas. Alexander's characters are unusually well-rounded, although they do seem to be a quirky bunch. Of course, everyone knows small towns are filled with eccentric behavior. The strength of this book lies in the structure of political corruption and Quintana's fight to tame it. Alexander plans a series of Sheriff Quintana mysteries and has laid a firm foundation.
