If you have been looking for a new crime novel to read, look no further. The Devil’s Country is the newest, powerful and mysterious book by author Harry Hunsicker. He will be joining us at The Wild Detectives to present the book. Do not miss out on this dangerously entertaining night and be one of the first to hear a reading from this thrilling novel.
Former Texas Ranger Arlo Baines didn’t come to the tiny West Texas town of Piedra Springs to cause trouble. After his wife and children were murdered, Arlo just wants to be left alone. Moving from place to place seems to be the only thing that eases the pain of his family’s violent end.
But a chance encounter outside a bar forces him to rescue a terrified woman and her children from mysterious attackers. When the woman turns up murdered the next day—her children missing—Arlo becomes the primary suspect in exactly the same type of crime he is trying desperately to forget.
Haunted by the fate of his family, and with the police questioning the existence of the dead woman’s children, Arlo decides it’s his duty to find them. The question is, just how deep will he have to sink into the dusty secrets of Piedra Springs to save them and clear his name?
Harry Hunsicker is the former executive vice president of the Mystery Writers of America and the author of seven crime thrillers, all set in Dallas and Texas. His work has been short-listed for both the Shamus and Thriller Awards. He lives in Dallas with his wife, Alison.
