Southlake author Joe B. Parr

Are you a fan of fiction novels? And do you particularly enjoy the mystery/suspense genre? Check out the new book from Southlake-based author Joe B. Parr: Unseen Carnage. He’s hosting a book-signing event at Back Forty Smokehouse February 13 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Here’s the book synopsis from his website:

Fort Worth Police Detective Jake ‘Cowboy’ Hunter finds himself looking down the barrel of a gun after chasing a suspect through a dark alley. His split second reaction saves his life, ends another and launches his team on a fast-paced search for truth.

What seems to be an open and shut case of homicide turns into a complicated series of murders and drug overdoses intertwined in the world of narcotics distribution, forcing Hunter and his team to suspect both the good guys and the bad guys.

While Hunter struggles with his role in taking a life, his partner Detective Billy Sanders helps lead the investigation as they discover the hidden impact of drugs on users, dealers, first responders and their families.

Hunter’s team enlists the help of the FWPD Narcotics division and even Internal Affairs to sort through a confusing web of suspects, victims, leads and false clues on their way to resolution. And redemption. The revelations don’t stop until the final page.

The story highlights the collateral damage of America’s unsuccessful War on Drugs, and how even casual drug use causes devastating consequences.
