Anahuac by William D. Darling
"(Five Stars with a caveat*). Anahuac: A Texas Story, Volume 2 is my first book finished in 2018 -- and it leaves some big shoes to fill for all those that come after it. Perhaps it has a winning edge over others by including three of my favorite e..." Read more of this review »
Anahuac by William D. Darling
"While certainly a period piece, I'm glad that this book didn't delve too far into Texas history because it already has so much to offer on its own. There is no point in making a masterpiece of the backdrop when the main players, the main point of..." Read more of this review »

" Anahuac is out. It is the sequel. "
Anahuac by William D. Darling
"Thriller is definitely an apt description for Anahuac. The entire story is a fast train ride through the Texas legal system in the 1970s. What could be more thrilling than that?
