Author’s Summary

When the phone rings long after midnight, it spells trouble of the lethal kind for Dallas private eye Ed Earl Burch in a gritty and relentless hard-boiled thriller that races from the gleaming towers of Houston to the stark desert mountains of the Texas Big Bend country and northern Mexico.

Burch is a cashiered homicide detective with bad knees, a wounded liver and an empty bank account. He’s been hired to protect an old flame after the disappearance of her husband, a high-flying Houston financier who ripped off his clients, including some deeply unsavory gentlemen from New Orleans.

It’s a simple job that goes wrong fast, plunging Burch into a ruthless contest where nothing and nobody can be trusted. Money and sex tempt him to break his own rules—twin temptations served up by the old flame, a rangy strawberry blonde with a violent temper and a terminal knack for larceny and betrayal.

When his best friend gets murdered by hired muscle in Dallas, Burch blames himself and grimly sets out for vengeance.

Short Description

A phone call in the small hours after midnight lands Dallas PI Ed Earl Burch in a lethal game where nobody can be trusted and everybody wants him dead. That includes the caller, an old flame with a violent temper and a terminal knack for larceny and betrayal.

Catchphrase

Nobody's Hero, Nobody's Fool

Endorsements



“Jim Nesbitt serves up another raunchy slice of Texas-style revenge and redemption in his latest hard-boiled thriller, THE RIGHT WRONG NUMBER, featuring his scarred and guilt-ridden Dallas PI, Ed Earl Burch. In Burch, Nesbitt has created a colorful, authentic and deeply-flawed character who is nobody’s idea of a hero but also turns out to be nobody’s fool.”
– Robert Ward, author of CATTLE ANNIE AND LITTLE BRITCHES, RED BAKER and THE BEST, BAD DREAM; writer-producer on HILL STREET BLUES and MIAMI VICE
