I am pretty happy right now. Henry, the guinea pig ate a carrot right from my hand. It might be because I was late with the treats, and he was pretty hungry. But I am just going to think he loves me.

Read the first four books that launched the bestselling suspense series.

Character driven suspense, rich in coastal atmosphere and dry humor.

Low Tide – Book 1

In Apalachicola, Florida, sinister things are afoot, as sinister things tend to be.

Lt. Maggie Redmond is called to a crime scene on St. George Island, where she is met with the body of Gregory Boudreaux. The medical examiner calls it a suicide, but no one knows that Maggie has a horrible connection to the dead man.

When Gregory’s uncle, Bennett Boudreaux, the richest and scariest man in town, takes a sudden interest in Maggie, people start to wonder, Maggie included. Maggie knows he may suspect her of killing his nephew, but she finds herself slowly drawn to the man.

As Maggie fights to help a young girl escape the clutches of a volatile drug dealer who’d love to see Maggie dead, she also struggles to hide her dark link to a dead man, and her burgeoning relationship with her boss, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton.

Unfortunately, secrets have a way of revealing themselves at low tide.

Riptide – Book 2

Once again, sinister things are afoot in Apalachicola, FL, and one of them is an actual foot.

When a local fisherman finds a severed limb in his net, it sets off a chain of events that no one can anticipate.

Lt. Maggie Redmond soon discovers that the foot belongs to the friend of another recently dead guy, Gregory Boudreaux, the man she never told anyone about. Gregory’s death was thought to be a suicide. That seems less likely, now that his best friend Sport’s foot has shown up out of the blue, as it were.

When it starts looking like town villain Bennett Boudreaux might be responsible for eliminating Sport, things begin to get a little weird. Especially since Maggie’s started to take a liking to Bennett. She’s also taken a real liking to her boss, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton, but both her relationship to Bennett and her secret connection to the dead men threaten hers and Wyatt’s relationship.

Is Bennett protecting or avenging Maggie for some reason, or does he have something altogether different on his mind?

What Washes Up – Book 3

Karma’s alive and well in Apalachicola, Florida, and there are several people who are about to meet it face to face.

When more than a dozen bodies wash up on the beach on St. George Island, the residents of Apalach are outraged, and none more so than investigator Maggie Redmond and Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton. It’s time for the greedy to answer for the lives of innocents.

Meanwhile, a man is found tied to a burning boat in the middle of the bay, and Maggie’s instincts tell her Bennett Boudreaux is behind it. But if he is, Maggie has to decide whether she really wants him punished, or if justice has already been served.

Landfall – Book 4

Two storms that nobody thought were coming just made landfall.
As a hurricane gathers its power just off Apalachicola’s shore, another storm comes to a head in Lt. Maggie Redmond’s home.

Held prisoner by a man bent on avenging the death of a son, Maggie must find a way to save herself and her two children.

No one knows where they are. No one is coming to help. Maggie and her children will have to find a way to survive both the madness inside their home and the madness raging outside.

For centuries, they’ve lived among us. Utilizing the shadowy Boundary to travel between dimensions, Coven operatives use their magic to protect those in need.

Riders of the Lone Star: Heck Carson Series Volume 1
by John Spiars
4.0 Stars (1 Review)
Genre: Westerns | Sagas

FREE for a limited time

The year is 1852 and a handful of settlers work to carve out an existence on the Texas frontier. It is a harsh life, where families are at the mercy of hostile Comanche and vicious outlaws, and the only ones holding the line between life and death are a few brave men, known as Texas Rangers. These men, outnumbered and outgunned, patrolled thousands of square miles, in an effort to bring law and order to the untamed land. They faced impossible odds with nothing more than grit, determination, and a fast gun. Sixteen year old Jesse “Heck” Carson leaves his comfortable home to join the fight, and in the process realizes the life of adventure he seeks comes at a price, the cost of which is hardship, danger, and possibly his own life. The bonds of friendship, loyalty, and duty will lead him into epic battles that will test both his courage and resolve. Along the way he learns what it means to wear the star of the Texas Rangers. Riders of the Lone Star is a classic western novel that includes all of the elements that fans of the genre have come to expect, but with a few surprises along the way. It is a tale of bravery, sacrifice, and commitment to duty in the face of overwhelming odds, and will remind readers why the western novel is such a beloved American art form. Riders of the Lone Star pays tribute to the men and women who shaped the history and legends of Texas.

As fast as he could, he pulled the hammer back and fired, the first Comanche jerked once and hit the ground. The other warrior was no more than two feet away now. Heck wondered if he had another bullet left. Had he fired five or six shots? He couldn’t remember. Saying a silent prayer, Heck pulled the hammer back and looked at his approaching enemy. The point of the warrior’s lance was inches away from his chest when heck pulled the trigger. The barrel of the Walker was almost touching the chest of the charging Indian. Heck heard no sound, but saw the smoke pour out of the barrel and the big warrior dropped to his knees, and fell on top of the young Ranger.

Lieutenant Sutter and Corporal Anderson approached the men on horseback, ready to do what had to be done. Looking at the group of riders, however, Sutter immediately recognized he had made a terrible mistake. These men were not military, not even by Southern standards. They were unkempt, filthy, and armed to the teeth. His heart sank as he noticed that most of the detachment were Mexican and their guns were not in their holsters. “What is going on here?” he said, unable to believe what he was seeing.
The lead rider smiled and said, “This was even easier than Senor Cortina said it would be. Thank you.” Without saying another word, the man raised his pistol and fired two quick shots, hitting both Lieutenant Sutter and Corporal Anderson between the eyes.

The man wheeled around with his rifle as Heck landed on his back, but it was a fruitless gesture. There was a look of pained surprise on the man’s face as Heck covered his mouth and pulled him to the floor. Heck plunged his knife into the man’s chest several times, as he kept his hand over the man’s mouth. After several seconds his muffled cries were silent.

John Spiars is the author of Riders of the Lone Star and Hell and Half of Texas, and is both a writer and amateur historian with a passion for the history and myths of the “Old West”. His dream is to keep alive the western genre for the this generation and all of those to come, while both entertaining and educating readers of all ages. He is a native Texan, and lives in North Texas with his wife, four children, and two dogs. When not writing western novels he maintains a blog about Texas history and travel called Under the Lone Star.
