Description


The Anahuac of 1972 is more than just an isolated outpost on Texas's Trinity Bay - it's a place where greed and justice uncomfortably intermingle, where the evangelical fervor of charismatic preachers resonate, where blacks and whites navigate a fragile co-existence, and where a murder leads to even darker mysteries than murder. Jim Ward, introduced in Morgan's Point as a young, idealistic Houston prosecutor, returns in Anahuac as an older, more conflicted, more complicated man, coming to Anahuac to defend a man who appears guilty of a horrible crime. His discoveries lead to entanglements in the very nature of good and evil, in a town steeped in a history that is unexpectedly but definitively drawing Ward in its narrative web.

About the Author


William D. Darling is a lifelong storyteller and very nearly a native Texan, arriving in his beloved state as an infant in 1942. His first novel, Morgan's Point, introduced readers to both the mid-'60s rough-and-tumble world of the Houston courts where Darling came of age, and the Galveston Bay region that has long fascinated him. His latest novel, Anahuac, serves as a sequel to Morgan's Point as well as its own fascinating tale. Darling, who has lived within the legislative bustle of Washington, D.C. and in the peace of a Central Texas ranch, currently resides in Austin, where he and his wife have built a long-standing law practice.
