If only he hadn’t found the hat. Or the dead guy. Or the steamer trunk. Or the rag doll. If only he hadn’t found any of these things, everything might have been okay. But he had found them. All of them. Now Carson Halliday is on the run, trying his damnedest to keep one step ahead of a dangerous gang of outlaws and mad men. A run leading him from town to town in the dry wasteland of the southern New Mexico desert, over dark hills and dangerous plains, through shantytowns and city streets, and, most frightening of all, into the mysterious depths of the human heart.
Hello Ghouls and Boils,
Today I will be discussing Trent Zelazny’s new book, “Too Late to Call Texas” due out in October. There is no need to keep you waiting – Enjoy, my fiends!

Ever hear that old saying, “Curiosity killed the cat”? Carson Halliday quickly became familiar with that cliché when he stumbled upon a lonely hat on his way home. His curiosity got the better of him, now all he could do was try his best not to become that cat. Things start to spiral downward as he becomes more entangled in this murder mystery.
As my regular readers know, I only give spoiler free reviews. So I will just say, this book is an edge-of-the-seat nail biter. On the first read I could not put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen next. Trent outdid himself with this book. It quickly became my favorite piece of his to-date!
Give yourself a present this year and buy this book. It will be available on Halloween (when SNS will be doing an exclusive interview with Mr. Zelazny). If you like mysteries, crime books, strange tales, or fast-paced noir stories – then this book is for you! I give Too Late to Call Texas a 6 out of 5 tentacles – 5 for a very well written, gripping story and an extra 1 for outdoing himself, yet again!
