Book 2 of the Neil Marshall Mystery novel series - Graduate student and part-time chef Neil Marshall only wants to go for an early morning run. Instead he witnesses the near-fatal shooting of legendary Houston private eye C.J. McDaniels, and he fears the gunmen can identify them. Before long, Neil finds himself in the eye of a hurricane, his quiet academic life ripped apart as he rides a swath of violence that cuts across a mansion in River Oaks to an eerily silent suburban home, from a secret hospital room to the bed of a fascinating woman. In Houston's sultry summer heat a deep-rooted rage is building from a whisper to a roar.
Praise for Book One of the series:
"Tim Hemlin's 'If Wishes Were Horses...' is one of the most entertaining first mysteries I've read in several years, and aspiring writer Neil Marshall is the most engaging amateur sleuth to come along since Jeff Abbott's Jordan Poteet. This novel is so good, I'd like it even if it weren't set in Texas." - Bill Crider, Author of many series including the Sheriff Dan Rhoades Mysteries, and resident of the Texas Literary Hall of Fame.
"A Welcome new voice in the mystery field." - Earl Emerson.
