Where did Stefan Sanchez grow up? What happened to his father? What does he do for a living? Which NHL hockey team will win the Stanley Cup this year? Do your own work, because there’s no guarantee the previous commenter answered correctly. 😉
CONTEST CLOSED. Congrats, Yvette and DebraG!
This is a newly edited version; the first edition was released under MLR Press in 2010.
Stefan Sanchez,s number one reason to flee Boerne, Texas, twelve years ago, was closeted deputy Chet Blain. Since then he has lived in Los Angeles, become a successful author of children’s books and managed his sexual relationships with a certain cool cynicism.
When Stefan returns to Texas for the funeral of his best friend, Tommy, he is confronted by painful memories: His infamous father, shot as a traitor, his alcoholic mother, and Chet, who seems to want to start their old painful relationship all over again. Added to this is a missing widow, drugs in the trunk of his rental car, and a hunky Secret Service agent who seems determined to make Stefan’s business his business.
It all ends in a mad chase across the infamously haunted Devilâ€™s Backbone where ghosts from the past and personal demons in the present all conspire to give Stefan a chance to close the book on his childhood forever… or die trying.
