THE MECANA SERIES continues in this action-packed follow-up to WHEN THE NIGHT BIRD SIGNS and HORSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR
a Mecana novella by
John L. Lansdale
Newlywed private detectives Thomas Mecana and Darcie Connors have barely shaken their honeymoon jetlag before taking on another case in the Lone Star State.
Dallas Homicide Detective Sunday Verves is looking into the suspicious deaths of local drug runners when she discovers a potential suspect that hits too close to home – Angela, the daughter of her superior officer, and Angela’s lawyer boyfriend.
When the trail leads her south of the border, Verves enlists her old friend Mecana and his new wife into tracking down Angela and her boyfriend.
What they discover down Mexico way turns the case on its head and sends the group searching for clues to a bigger piece of the puzzle.
Ultimately, Sunday Verves finds she must choose between avenging wrongs of the past or righting wrongs of the present.
Sometimes the only choice is TWISTED JUSTICE.
