Denny McConnell, Private Investigator, is hired to research the deeds, land swaps, and old lawsuits regarding Texas ranchland and oil, the rights to which are now disputed by Wendy Axtell Shearer. Obstacles develop, in part, because of Wendy's charming but flawed character.
Denny puts to good use his engineering skills, and becomes entangled in the bitter family feud that includes murder, mayhem, and lies. Now, he has to stay alive long enough to untangle this deadly mess.
EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS an entertaining, intriguing romp by one private investigator through some deadly wheeling and dealing in the Great State of Texas.

About the Author
EDITOR: Books have always been a part of my life. I started early on as a reader and would devour anything I could get my hands on, from non-fiction books to the many fantasy series I ended up falling in love with. When I went to West Chester University, I got my Bachelor's in Literature. From there, I became an author, working with a variety of different publishers, each one offering a unique experience. Collaborating with so many editors and experiencing what a difference they made on my work pushed me in the direction of turning my applied skills to freelance editing. As an editor, I've fallen in love with helping authors produce the best versions of their work possible. In my free time, I have a penchant for board games, diner nights, and adventures.
