“Doing the right thing means you don’t eat”
So begins the sweltering narrative of District Manager, Mason Dixon, a haunted man serving Texas House District 100. After a constituent reaches out to his office with disturbing information about twisted activities going on in district, Mason finds himself drawn into a game of cat and mouse with a malevolent entity.
While these events unfold, Mason begins dating a county judge’s assistant. Brenna is a single mother who is ready to start the next chapter of her life. Can she and the stoical Mason connect? Or will she become collateral damage to his unorthodox, occupational hazards?
Mason soon finds that the danger has reached the highest ranks of the district, and that the century-old structure where he offices is not haunted, but instead possessed by an all too real menace.
Can a man who is profoundly broken restore order when the very core of order itself has been corrupted?
“Matt Minor knows Texas politics from the inside, and he weaves a devious tale of deceit and death and even a little romance. Buckle your seat belt and hang on for the ride.” — Bill Crider

I love the struggle of how a law-abiding citizen is going to fix the lawless when the ungovernable are the ones that created the laws. The story is developed beautifully as you get to know the characters in a more modern relative environment while learning some history in the mix.
The suspicion behind his wife’s disappearance started the story with an eerie skepticism of the town and from then on you were making allegations and trying to make sense of things. The story had a great energy and never seemed to plateau. It evolved the characters and didn’t disappoint in the directions they took. I was wrong multiple times in the assumptions I made, but that just makes me love the book even more. I love the unexpected and unique plots that catch me by surprise. This story gave me that as it took me on this mysterious journey with flairs of humor and twists both light and dark mixed in for the perfect combination.
