Milton T. Burton, acclaimed author of The Rogue’s Game, The Sweet and the Dead and most recently Nights of the Red Moon, has pulled together 17 short stories in a collection called TEXAS NOIR.
He starts with a hay baler in “A Good Beginning”, we’re introduced to Sam MacCord in a couple of stories and Bo Handel makes an appearance. Milton tries his hand at, of all things, a vampire tale and nails it. Wild Bill Throckett gets hanged, not once but three times! He ends this round with a simple e-mail exchange between a hit man and his lover’s husband.
