To Love and Die in Dallas
"To Love and Die in Dallas shimmers with intrigue and sparkles with insight. It is the author's first novel, but if I'm any judge of these things, the American public will soon be demanding many more."
-Kinky Friedman, New York Times Bestselling Author of Cowboy Logic
"A twisty mystery rich with details of life, and girl life, in Dallas. The characters seem real, and the writing kept me turning the pages. I loved it."
-Sparkle Hayter, Bestselling Author of Naked Brunch and Bandit Queen Boogie
"To Love and Die in Dallas is a stunner. Mary Elizabeth Goldman's clean, merciless style is addictive, and she tells a powerhouse story. She's done something quite new with the creep quotient that haunted Heavenly Creatures and made it native to the American West."
-Loren D. Estleman, Bestselling Author of American Detective
"Mary Elizabeth Goldman has a sure eye for human foibles and for the complications that compound when murder occurs among friends, lovers, and Texas politicians."
-Lucia St. Clair Robson, New York Bestselling Author of Shadow Patriots
"A fascinating story that gives the reader a tantalizing glimpse into the bold, exciting world of Texas in the 1960s."
-Kat Martin, New York Times Bestselling Author of Heart of Honor
Rich in both rowdy and big-city sophistication, Dallas is a city of paradox. It’s a city with attitude where men don’t walk, they “stride,” and women with “big hair” speak with a distinct drawl because to want to. It’s a city that has experienced, endured, thrived, and even capitalized on the scars of assassinations, protests, and murder.
To Love and Die in Dallas unfolds through the pages of an ill-gotten diary that recalls the teenage years of four best friends. It was a time of innocence, when Dallas teenagers were bopping at the sock-hops to the tunes of Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis, cruising around White Rock Lake, and hanging out at the drive-in on Garland Road. But time changed everything.
It is now the twenty-first century, and those carefree teenagers are the power players in Dallas. The death of one of the friends, Lindsey Rose Mitchell, wife of U.S. Senator James “Buddy” Mitchell, turns Dallas high society upside down. Lindsey’s funeral brings the three surviving best friends together again. They vow to find out what really happened. But some stones are best left unturned. As their suspect list grows, their investigation descends deep into Dallas’s underbelly and into crevices where they each harbor dark, deadly secrets. Secrets they thought would never be revealed.
