THE LAST CALL starts with a protagonist on the edge of an impending midlife crisis. Add a blond and an old friend with a fetish for high explosives, and you have the kickoff of a first rate crime novel. George Wier writes with wit, verve, and a gut-bucket knowledge of Texas and those who people its quirky underside. This book does not disappoint.

—Milton T. Burton, author of Nights of the Red Moon and The Rogue’s Game.

George Wier's THE LAST CALL has it all: a great setting, characters you care about, a little Texas history, and a twisty plot that's built Texas tough. Get it before last call!

—Bill Crider, author of Murder In the Air.

Bill Travis, an unmarried, unattached investment counselor rapidly approaching his fortieth birthday, conceives that he may not live the most exciting of lives, yet Julie Simmons, his first appointment that Monday, is deeply in trouble. She has taken a North Texas quarter horse racer and liquor baron named Archie Carpin--the last of a dynasty of criminals from the 1920's--for a ride and cleaned him out of a neat two million bucks. And thus begins the adventure of Bill’s life.

Ensues a chase north across Texas to recover the money and shake the pursuit of a couple of rednecks with a penchant for rifles and rigged explosives. Yet, through all this action the compelling tale of yet another mystery—an 80-year old missing person’s case—begins to unravel.

George Wier really knows how spin a yarn. I've got work piled up, but I just have to read "one more page."

I tried to like the book, but could only make it through half of it before I had to quit. The author fails miserably in trying to use the dialog to "explain" parts of the story. Bits of dialog come inout of the blue for no apparent reason and just don't fit in with the rest of the conversation. Real people don't talk like that so it makes it tough to ignore. With a good book you find yourself wondering whats going to happen next, not so with this book. I just hoped that it wasn't going to get worst, but it did. Do yourself a favor and sklp this one. KMS

George Wier's "The Last Call" is the first book in a great new series. Bill Travis is an investment counselor; the go to guy when you have a little extra money that you need to invest but invest in a way that is legal but hidden from Uncle Sam's extended hands. On a Monday morning he meets his newest client Julie. She needs his help to retrieve some money from a very bad man. Bill agrees to help this damsel in distress and by agreeing, he finds himself on one thrilling but deadly ride of the week. Who would have thought managing money could be so exciting? This is the beginning of a thrilling and exciting new series. If you want one of those books that keep you up late at night turning pages than this is the series for you. Pick up your copy today and you won't be just might miss a little sleep though.

I enjoyed this book. It wasnt the most entertaining read I have ever enjoyed but the story kept me coming back for more. As a native Texan I enjoyed reading about places I new. A few errors kept me from giving this four stars but, seeing as how it was free, its hard to complain too much.

A few historical facts mixed with fiction about Texas. You find out what you want to know after the facts. Enjoyable read.

Laid good groundwork for the next book. Texas based. Some humor. Good detail in some of the scenes. Could almost believe you were right there during the action scenes.
