Writing murder mysteries turns you into a strange creature with an ear for the macabre. The news is one of my favorite shows. The odd bits that others try not to hear, you know the killings and sad odd stories are all stored away for some later use. The best stories simmer in the back of my brain. At night they take shape into twisting into new story lines eager to take form.
Out on a misty lake, a couple's life changed forever. The calm picturesque scene cuts a tremulous border between two nations. Pirates started months ago attacking fisherman and tourist. The violence led the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to issue a warnings to stay off the Mexican side of the lake. Suggestions have been made to bring a gun if going on 'that' side.
