long-fall-from-heaven-cover-340wCueball Boland and Micah Lanscomb, both ex-cops with troubled pasts, stumble into the path of a serial killer. The murderer leads them into the dark history of Galveston when the island was still Texas’ Sin City. The killer has roots sunk deep into that history, but the authorities and the old Galveston families don’t want these crimes solved. Now, the hazy memories of another serial killer, who stalked the city back during World War II, are resurfacing.

In the 1990s George Wier befriended the older novelist Milton T. Burton and the two became close friends. In 1998, Burton, worried about his health, told Wier this story and asked him to be his collaborator and principal writer. The two friends talked back and forth, and Wier wrote the novel.

George Wier is the author of the Bill Travis Mystery Series. He plays classical violin and country fiddle, dabbles in art and photography. This is his first trade-published novel. He lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Sallie.

Milton T. Burton (1947-2011) authored four crime novels published by Minotaur/Thomas Dunne. Like Wier, Burton was a lifelong Texan who breathed the Texas lingo. Burton had been variously a cattleman, a political consultant, and a college history teacher. He died in December 2011.
