When nesting grounds at the Border Field Park bird preserve are torn to shambles by eco-vandals, Rolly Waters is hired to follow the tracks left behind. Feeling less than optimistic about finding the perpetrators, he begins his due diligence, crossing paths with a local border vigilante, a tormented vaquero, and an aging rock groupie. A menacing house call from a scalpel-wielding orderly in pursuit of a prostitute named after an 80's pop hit confounds Rolly's case even further. After police detective Bonnie Hammond hands him a coroner's report, he knows it's turned deadly.
Border Field Blues is the second volume in the Rolly Waters mystery series, following the critically-acclaimed Black's Beach Shuffle. Amid family issues, band gigs, and personal temptation, the guitar-slinging detective rocks on, putting his sleuthing skills and his life to the test.
