When Jennifer Travis’s piano teacher, Todd Landry, goes missing, Bill Travis has to pull out of all the stops to find him before her upcoming piano recital. Along for the ride is not only Jennifer herself, but also her pet ferret, Morgan Freeman, and Bill’s old running buddy, Hank Sterling. Zig-zagging all over the map on the trail of an elusive Todd (whom people keep calling “Sam”) the team encounters a host of interesting characters including the members of a dynastic millionaire family with enough skeletons in their collective closet to fill a boneyard. It’s murder, mayhem, conspiracy and intrigue at a fever pitch for Bill Travis and company. Desperate Crimes is the 11th installment in the Bill Travis Mystery series.

It’s murder in paradise.
Who killed local debutante Delores Fogel in the sleepy, Central Texas town of Elysium? Benjamin LeFren was exonerated for the crime and released from jail thirty years after the fact, thanks in part to Shane Robeling, former FBI Agent and now Elysium’s Chief of Police. But now Shane is not so sure of LeFren’s innocence. When LeFren shows up in Elysium, Shane must now guard LeFren from the townspeople he has sworn to protect, and the only way to do that is to hire him as his ranch foreman, thus—in theory—keeping him out of harm’s way. But then the psychological warfare begins. As the local death toll begins to mount, Shane must discover whether it is LeFren carrying out the killings, or someone else from thirty years dead and gone.

ACCOLADES for Murder In Elysium:
“George Wier has done it again! Murder in Elysium is the multi-layered, dark tale of a decades old murder in this small, picturesque Texas town. Police Chief Shane Robeling still searches for the killer, and his association with Elysium is…complicated. Razor sharp, distinctive characters and a wicked, twisting storyline; these are Wier’s forte, and he is at the top of his game in this tale of murder, secrets, and lies in a town whose surface beauty hides both violence and depravity underneath.”
—Billy Kring, author of the Hunter Kincaid Mysteries
“There’s a reason George Wier ranks among my favorite authors. The man is a first class storyteller who never fails to entertain me with his captivating tales of Texas intrigue and mystery. He’s done it again with Murder in Elysium, the story of an old murder in a small town where secrets and betrayal lurk just below the calm surface, and you never know what skeletons hang in the closets of the folks you nod to on Main Street or sit next to at the counter of the diner. Don’t start this book until you have time to read it all the way through because like all of Wier’s books, you won’t be able to put it down!”
—Nick Russell, Author of the Big Lake mystery series.
