By Milton T. Burton
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.
