Book Description

Bounty hunter Frank Knott is on his way to San Antonio in search of a fugitive when he stops in Dallas to visit a former Marine Corps buddy. Frank quickly discovers his old friend is not the same reliable guy he trusted at Camp Lejeune. Over the next two weeks, Frank’s no-nonsense approach to life is tested to the limits as he gets a close gritty view of a modern-day lawless Lone Star State.

This is the first in the Frank Knott crime/adventure series.

Editorial Reviews


"There are enough surprises in the book to push the storyline forward, and this is a solid and well-crafted piece of writing." --

From the Author

Frank Knott is a no-nonsense former Marine, who may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he nonetheless responds quickly whenever he sees a violation to his unique code of ethics.

Frank can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

If you disagree with him, it's better to cross the street or go the other way. Just let him be, because you may need him on your side someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way to Go, Wayne! October 13, 2012
By germrn
Congratulations on the success of your first book! I have become an instant Frank Knott fan and look forward to his future escapades. In addition to the whole story line, I liked the format of the book itself, ie small size book with bold easy to read print. Can't wait to hear book # 2 is available!

4.0 out of 5 stars Waiting For More Knott August 6, 2012
By daysman
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good first outing for Epperson. He's positioned his warts-and-all hero, Frank Knott, right in the middle of likeable and memorable characters such as Joseph Flynn's Ladbrook Johnson and Lee Child's Jack Reacher. Since Crime and Corruption is listed as the first of a series, it will be interesting to see if Knott can survive returning to Atlanta, `cause there's no crime and corruption there, right? I'd bet he finds just enough to keep his juices flowing and our pages turning, even if he has to travel back to Texas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book was Too Short ! June 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an introduction to Frank Knott, a bounty hunter, with whom I plan to keep up with! It is a wild adventure from the first page. This is an easy read adventure series. The sequel Chasing bad guys is even more exciting! As a serious gun violence opponent, I sure did enjoy the violence in this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, it has "Texas" in the title. That's good. April 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It reads very stiffly, not flowing and captivating at all. More like a comfy-sofa insurance policy. Maybe like a dry documentary. Not memorable.

More About the Author

I am a former editor at major daily newspapers and an international news service; a correspondent for the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, Reuters News Service, and technology and health care trade journals.

After nearly three decades of editing and writing in newsrooms, I decided it was time to wade into the sea of fiction. Crime and Corruption in Texas was the first book in the Frank Knott crime/adventure series.

It was followed by Chasing Bad Guys and EPIC Justice. I'm currently working on the fourth book in the series.

Other tidbits about me: I'm a former U.S. Marine; licensed private pilot; Texas Department of Public Safety certified Concealed Handgun License instructor.
