Nights of the Red Moon

A novel by

During a merciless Texas drought that drags on toward the fall equinox, the murdered body of a popular local Methodist minister's estranged wife is found dumped on the couple's front yard in the wee hours of the morning. But this turns out to be more than a simple murder case for longtime Sequoya County sheriff, Bo Handel. Before the story winds its way to a conclusion, there will be two more murders and Sheriff Handel will find himself confronting a shadowy and eccentric Houston banker the FBI claims is the state's cocaine kingpin.

Praise for this book

"Milton Burton writes about East Texas with wit, spice, and insight.  His Sequoya County sheriff, Bo Handel, has a shrewd mind to go along with his fancy pistol.  He's the kind of man Sheriff Dan Rhodes would share a Dr Pepper with any day." - Bill Crider

"Wildcat drilling and high stakes poker and more intrigue than you can say Grace over, and all of it set in post World War II West Texas, where the men got separated from the mere pretenders right quick. Milton Burton has dealt us all a winning hand in THE ROGUES' GAME." - James Hime

"A long-running poker game, a sting operation, a heist, a secret Nazi past, and to top it all off, a thundering West Texas oil boom. THE ROGUES' GAME pulls them off in a fast-moving thriller." - Elmer Kelton
