Overview
Deputy U.S. Marshal Johnny Madrid, a West Texas legend in bringing down outlaws and cattle rustlers, is tracking the Fort Davis Butcher, a serial killer on the loose along the San Antonio-El Paso Road. In his latest novel, “Pecos Moon,” crime writer Tim Younkman creates a new kind of hero in Johnny Madrid, whose heritage of European Spanish, Louisiana Cajun Creole, and San Antonio Mexican enhances his ability to chase down the Butcher. In the process, Madrid encounters an even more prolific killer known as the Annihilator who has terrorized young women in wealthy neighborhoods of Austin. The tension becomes intense as Madrid unearths shocking evidence that the two killing sprees are linked requiring his own brand of justice.
Description
The West Texas desert is familiar territory to all manner of bandits, desperados, Indian raiders...and a serial killer! The gruesome murders of young women by a savage predator, known only as the Fort Davis Butcher, puts famed outlaw hunter Johnny Madrid on his trail. Madrid, a former Texas Ranger and now a deputy U.S. marshal, must decipher the evidence leading to some shocking conclusions. In his latest novel, “Pecos Moon,” veteran crime writer Tim Younkman introduces Madrid, whose exploits include a shootout with legendary Texas train robber and killer Sam Bass, ending the bandit’s career...and his life. The investigation leads Madrid across the vast expanse of Texas where he corners the Butcher and then discovers another, even more diabolical killer described in the press as the “Servant Girl Annihilator.” This new killer has been loosed on the state capital, bludgeoning his way through the upscale neighborhoods of Austin, leaving mutilated women in his wake. When his own family is threatened, Madrid discovers the link between the Butcher and the Annihilator leading to a final highly personal and most deadly confrontation. Johnny Madrid is a rare breed of tough Western lawman, a mixture of European Spanish, Bayou Cajun, and Mexican heritage, who fashioned a legend and legacy across the burgeoning frontier, an enforcer of the law who knows how to bend it to achieve justice, and definitely a man one cannot forget. In “Pecos Moon,” Younkman captures the elements that drew men and their women to the desert plains of West Texas as they forged a promising new world from their dust-coated past.
