The Bird Boys
by Lisa Sandlin

Galveston Bookshop will host a book signing on Friday, August 2nd, 2019, 5:00-7:00 p.m. with author Lisa Sandlin and her latest mystery novel, The Bird Boys, sequel to her award winning debut The Do-Right.

Book synopsis: After a serial killer almost murders Delpha Wade (The Do-Right, 2015), the county hospital releases her into the handcuffs of the police for questioning. The reason is she killed the man who was trying to kill her, and she is, after all, an ex-con.

It’s Beaumont in the 1970s and mindsets don’t change very fast along the Texas Gulf Coast. Her boss, the neophyte private detective Tom Phelan, sets out to get her cleared, and quickly. He wants her back at work, and in no time they are back at it, scoring clients and getting deep into other people’s business.

Their first case seems easy – two brothers, one searching, the other hiding – until it becomes clear one of them is a murderer. But which one? Maybe the half-grown red-haired girl who sees the invisible and the forgotten can help, if Delpha is wise enough to listen.
