Tuck Tucker, the poker-playing slacker sleuth first introduced to mystery fans in The St. Charles House, and his beloved Cheerio-eating golden retriever, Pig Dog, return in a new adventure.

First, he finds out that a beautiful former girlfriend who is a pro athlete will be joining him there—pure heaven.
Then, when Tuck picks her up at the airport in one of the ranch's classic Lincoln towncars, he discovers the body of one of his classmates stuffed into the trunk—pure murder.
And if Tuck doesn't figure out who the killer is before the end of the retreat, he just might end up staying at Willie's house . . . for good.

About the Author

Stephen Banister was introduced to writing by his high school English teacher who allowed him to write his term paper on the women of James Bond and loaned him her Ian Fleming books as a reference. He didn't start writing seriously until twenty years ago by writing in winter, golfing in spring and summer and following college football in fall. This produced a dozen novel manuscripts. THE ST. CHARLES HOUSE, introduces a loveable, yet wiseass, easy-going accidental sleuth named Emerson "Tuck" Tucker. The next Tuck & Pig Dog mystery is CERVEZA, TEXAS, and Steve is working on a third in the series, DRISKILL'S ALLEY.
