UPDATE:The Lost Mine Trail is on the way

The Lost Mine Trail, the third book in the Big Bend Country Mysteries series, is in production. That, of course, means weeks of revising, editing, and proofreading. And there's a cover to choose, pages to design, front and back matter to write, and so on.

But the story is complete—a complex tale of murder and revenge. New characters of course, but favorites from previous books return too: Clayton Shoot and Claire Harp, of course, Velma Furcron, Lee Perciak, the Nixons, Gretchyn Whyrl, and Alonso Rangel & Fiona Tusk-Rangel (married now with twins on the way). Locales include Big Bend National Park, the Lajitas Golf Resort , the campus of Sul Ross State University, and, oh, a tourist turnout on Highway 118.

Look for The Lost Mine Trail in early fall, 2020.
