#Spotlight: Patrick Kelly & Hill Country Siren



When nesting grounds at the Border Field Park bird preserve are torn to shambles by eco-vandals, Rolly Waters is  hired to follow the tracks left behind. Feeling less than optimistic about finding the perpetrators, he begins his due diligence, crossing paths with a local border vigilante, a tormented vaquero, and an aging rock groupie. A menacing house call from a scalpel-wielding orderly in pursuit of a prostitute named after an 80’s pop hit confounds Rolly’s case even further. After police detective Bonnie Hammond hands him a coroner’s report, he knows it’s turned deadly.


Border Field Blues is the second volume in the Rolly Waters mystery series, following the critically-acclaimed Black’s Beach Shuffle. Amid family issues, band gigs, and personal temptation, the guitar-slinging detective rocks on, putting his sleuthing skills and his life to the test.

 All’s fair in love and war.

There’s something rotten in the state of Indiana. When con man Henry Page takes it upon himself to investigate the death of an elderly patient at a care facility, he does so in true Shakespearean tradition: dressed as a girl.

FBI Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness has more to worry about than Henry’s latest crazy idea. Someone is trying to send him a message—via a corpse with a couple of bullets in it. He needs to figure out who’s trying to set him up before he gets arrested, and he really doesn’t have time for Henry’s shenanigans. Then again, he’d probably be able to focus better if Henry didn’t look so damn distracting in a babydoll dress and a wig.

But when Mac discovers that Henry has been keeping a secret that connects the cases, he has to find a way to live on the
