When nesting grounds at the Border Field Park bird preserve are torn to shambles by eco-vandals, Rolly Waters is hired to follow the tracks left behind. Feeling less than optimistic about nabbing the perpetrators, he begins his due diligence, crossing paths with a tormented vaquero, border vigilantes, and an aging rock groupie. A menacing house call from a scalpel-wielding orderly in pursuit of a prostitute named after an 80’s pop hit confounds Rolly’s case even further. When police detective Bonnie Hammond hands him a coroner’s report, he knows it’s turned deadly.
Border Field Blues is the second volume in the Rolly Waters mystery series, following the critically-acclaimed Black’s Beach Shuffle. Amid band gigs, family issues and personal temptation, the guitar-slinging detective rocks on, putting his sleuthing skills, and his life, to the test.
