A New Yorker by birth, police detective Dan Reles fled to Texas at the age of fifteen when his father’s “friendship” with the mob turned sour. Now a member of Austin’s homicide unit, he’s the department’s only Yankee and its only Jew. Still reeling from his partner’s recent death, Reles is already on the edge and under scrutiny from internal affairs for his violent, erratic behavior. But when a beautiful young prostitute is found brutally murdered and other bodies start piling up in her wake, Reles must track down the culprit before Austin explodes. What he uncovers behind the sordid street crimes is an insidious path of financial intrigue that leads a bloody trail all the way up to Austin’s wealthy elite.Dirty Sallyis the explosive debut of a new series featuring Dan Reles as he searches for justice in the mansions and ghettos of corrupt, post-oil-bust Texas. From crack houses to the state capitol, Michael Simon does for 1980s Austin what James Ellroy did for 1950s Los Angeles. And after one taste of Dirty Sally, noir fans will be hungry for more.
