About the Author

To keep from confusing readers of his non-fiction books, author Joe B. Hewitt originally wrote this novel under his registered pen name “Alexander Whitehouse.” He reconsidered and put his own name on it. Hewitt started writing as a newspaper reporter, covering the police beat and later the courthouse beat. He moved on to copy editor and then national and international news editor and city desk “slot man.” (The slot man is in charge of Page 1 and some inside pages and coordinates work of other editors.) He owned and published two Texas weeklies, and later served as editor and publisher of another weekly in which he held stock and was president of the corporation. After 10 year in the newspaper business, Hewitt heeded the call to ministry, received a theological education at Bible Baptist Seminary and Dallas Baptist University. He pastored churches in the Dallas area for 39 years. For four years he was a full time vocational evangelist and special elections consultant. Of 13 major campaigns, he won 11. After retiring from the pastorate in 2001, Hewitt began training as a mediator. He has served as a professional mediator for courts in Dallas and surrounding counties since 2002. Throughout all that time, Hewitt never stopped writing, travel articles for newspapers, magazine articles, Sunday school teacher curriculum, and non-fiction, religious books. In recent years he started writing fiction, he said, “Because it’s more fun. You can make up stuff.”

Very few things bother me, but being stuck on a sky ride is close to the top of the list. The action in this story and the author's ability to lead the reader into the plot created a few restless nights.
This is a good, quick read with lots of twists and unexpected turns. It is worth your time.

I received this book as a gift, otherwise I would probably not have come across it. The main character is believable and the plot has some great twists and turns. I would definitely like to read more novels by this author and follow the investigations led by "Gar" Garcia. I definitely recommend this.

Format: Paperback
What a ride!! This story by Joe B. Hewitt had all the twists and rolls of a rollercoaster ride! Gar Garcia is a true Texas Ranger, complete with experience, schooling, two pistols at his waist and a star on his chest. He enters into an investigation of murder at a San Marcos, Texas amusement park ride. A politician representing La Gente Unida has been murdered when his cable car fell into the springs. All Gar really wants to do is be with his wife, but he is whisked away from a family vacation. Hewitt has Texas summer heat down pat (pun intended) and as the mystery takes on so many twists and turns it was hard for me to keep up. I wanted to keep reaching for that ice cold glass of sweet tea. One event after another develops. Hewitt draws each character very well …so well there are still visuals in my head .As each part of the story unfolds; we learn more about the personalities. Set in 1978, the culture icons are strong enough to flash us back to that era. This is an excellent book to be read aloud…maybe someone will turn it into an audio book. Hewitt’s humor had me chuckling. One particular sequence elaborates on the orange dye in towels Gar bought while on vacation. The dye paints his face orange and he reports to duty looking most unprofessional. It sounds hokey, but Hewitt details this so well it is just solid entertainment to read.
Definitely a book that is a page turner, it also addresses the diversified population in Texas. There are plenty of Anglos, Hispanics, Blacks, young, old, rich, poor, women and men in this story. Gar is an excellent ranger rising up quickly in his career, and even though he is accused of defaming character of the local mayor, he stands up for his work and his character.
