Publisher's Summary

Bill Travis, an unmarried, unattached investment counselor rapidly approaching his fortieth birthday, conceives that he may not live the most exciting of lives, yet Julie Simmons, his first appointment that Monday, is deeply in trouble. She has taken a North Texas quarter horse racer and liquor baron named Archie Carpin - the last of a dynasty of criminals from the 1920's - for a ride and cleaned him out of a neat two million bucks. And thus begins the adventure of Bill's life.

Ensues a chase north across Texas to recover the money and shake the pursuit of a couple of rednecks with a penchant for rifles and rigged explosives. Yet, through all this action the compelling tale of yet another mystery-an 80-year old missing person's case-begins to unravel.

About the Author: This action/adventure mystery novel is the first of six completed novels in The Bill Travis Mysteries. With a total of twenty-one books planned for the series, including three prequels, Bill Travis, Austin, Texas' newest hero, is here to stay. George Wier has been writing for over twenty years. His most recent publishing credits include a contribution to Lone Star Noir (Akashic Books 2010). He lives in Austin, Texas with his lovely wife, Sallie.

    I am a husband/dad/granddad who loves books. My reviews are my subjective opinions. My hope is they will help others make buying decisions.

    "OK, barely"

    I can only hope that George Wier does not depend upon thriller lovers like me to buy his books for his sole source of income.

    "Waste of time"

    Decent story. Too long and drawn out and no real substance. It kept my attention but I would not recommend this book

    "A slow moving story that never gets started"
    What would have made The Last Call better?

    The story starts out slow and continues to never get off the ground. The entire length is shown as being only 5 hours. After listening for over an hour the storyline hadn't begun to catch my interest.


    Has The Last Call turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably not. This genre is something that I usually enjoy


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Frank Clem?

    The narrator did a good job considering the material he had to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Call?

    I don't consider this book salvageable even with editing

    "Good suspenseful, fast moving story Well read."

    This was my first exposure to the author and the reader. Both have earned more of my time in the series to follow.

    "Relatively enjoyable"

    Plot well thought out but predictable. Enjpyed the style once I got used to it. More engaging towards the end. Felt that I could relate to the characters.

    "Okay"

    Just wasn't that convincing for me. Some parts were too slow and then others moved too quickly.
