Until recently, Robert Kelley will tell you himself that he is a pretty good private detective. But you might find this proud Texan a little more humble these days thanks to his troublesome client Corbel Pendergrat and a case that has more frustrating twists and turns for the detective than a Texas tornado.
In no time at all, Kelley finds himself investigating a death, embezzlement, kidnapping, missing person, and cattle rustling. Yes, I said cattle rustling. Thanks to long kept secrets by his client, he cannot involve the police.
Throw into the mix meaty thuggish bodyguards, illegal border busters, a spoiled heir, a femme fatale and her husband, the criminal empire boss, and you have more than one man can handle alone.
Lucky for our detective, he doesn’t have to. In trying to solve all these crimes, Kelley enlists the help of his best friend, private detective and former Marine Corps buddy Jackson Cartwright. He also has the love and support from his very large Irish Catholic family.
Finally, if Robert Kelley’s current situation isn’t confusing enough, he finds his heart suddenly entangled with the likes of the stunning Lydia Rico.
This story of intrigue takes place smack-dab in the heart of the Lone Star State, in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex. Those familiar with this little piece of heaven on earth will relate to the many local and even historic landmarks, places, and people. Those who are not get to take a voyage of discovery to Texas.
For the ignorant among you who haven’t figured it out after reading all of the above, that if you don’t take the time out of your busy schedules to find out what happens to our Cowtown detective, then you’re just simply missing out!
