The discovery of a severed human head launches a tale of greed, scandal, political corruption, child abuse and murder. The mystery unfolds through the eyes of a young woman battling with cerebral palsy; a cloistered monk whose sense of true north falters, but never fails; and a battle-weary homicide detective.
BIG D DEAD is set in the early 1990s when the collapse of Texas Savings & Loan institutions foreshadowed the financial crisis of 2008. Federal receivers, desperate for cash, turned to modern carbetbaggers. That’s how the "Wise Guys" met the "Good Old Boys".
