Overview

After a few harrowing months of stumbling through catacombs beneath a New Orleans cemetery, evading alligators at Bayou Teche, and dodging a band of fanatics searching for a crystal skull and torching rap clubs, Tony Boudreaux figures he deserves a rest. So when a San Antonio client offers a ten thousand dollar retainer to find a priceless map hidden in his deceased father's den, Tony takes the job. He enjoys the ambience of the city and the exotic venue of the River Walk. To his dismay, the simple task of finding a hidden map explodes into a series of attempts on his life and two murders with over a half dozen suspects, all of whom stood to gain from the map rumored to have been ancient even in the time of Alexander the Great.

Library Journal

Smooth, savvy Tony Boudreaux (The Swamps of Bayou Teche) is looking into an arson fire and the murder of a street person in San Antonio. But his boss also wants him to mentor a new hire who hates men and is the boss's sister-in-law. Reminiscent of 1950s hard-boiled detective stories with a dash of 21st-century male awareness, this series is engaging on all fronts. Giving Tony a unique female partner is a masterstroke.

Meet the Author

Kent Conwell’s enthusiasm for reading and writing was spurred by his upbringing in the tiny Texas town of Wheeler, population 848. With little else to occupy his mind in the middle of empty, rolling prairies, Conwell began conjuring up tales to bring a sense of adventure into his life and then to share it with others. Today, Conwell has produced dozens of westerns that tap into the nation’s pioneer spirit, and mysteries that combine deadly consequences with quirky characters, such as his Tony Boudreaux mystery series. As a teacher, he continues to expound on his love for America’s Old West period. He lives in Port Neches, Texas, with his wife.
