#BLOG TOUR: Dead Man’s Badge by Robert E. Dunn



When you dig your own grave it always ends up ragged and shallow.

Career criminal Longview Moody, on the run from killers, assumes his dead, twin brother’s identity as the new Chief of Police of a Texas town that’s being terrorized by a Mexican drug cartel. To pull off the deadly deception, Longview desperately works to become the kind of cop and man that his brother was. But when the two lives he’s living converge, he’s forced to embrace the violence within him to get justice…and vengeance.

My thoughts

You open this book to a terrific scene – two men digging graves it’s tense and then POW! The action begins and you’re off on a thrilling ride with Longview Moody.

You soon realise Longview is not one of the good guys he’s been money-running for the Mexican cartel but they want him dead now. Moving from one action-packed scene to another we travel from Mexico back to the USA. When Longview gets home he sees there may be a chance to disappear, to become his brother and start a new life in Texas.

It’s only when he gets to this little border town, which is being terrorised by the drug cartels, that he realises he’s probably in an even worse situation and if he had any sense he’d just walk, no run, away. Run a long, long way away.

By now you’re so on Longview’s side, if he’s not going to run then he’s going to have to get down dirty and fight for this little scrap of earth not to mention his own life, he’s got problems not just with the cartel but inside his own police force and then there’s the Agencies. He needs to find out who he can trust, get his team on board and not get killed.

Robert E. Dunn has written a fast-paced, violent, doozie of a thriller with terrific characters, a page-turner full of tense, gripping and jaw-dropping scenes that will keep you riveted to the end.

I really enjoyed it and would heartily recommend.

Robert E. Dunn was born an Army brat and grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. He wrote his first book at age eleven turning a series of Jack Kirby comic books into a hand written novel. Over many years in the, mostly, honest work of video and film production he produced everything from documentaries, to training films and his favorite, travelogues. He returned to writing mystery, horror, and fantasy fiction for publication after the turn of the century. It seemed like a good time for change even if the changes were not always his choice.

In addition to DEAD MAN’S BADGE, Mr. Dunn is the author of the horror novels, THE RED HIGHWAY, MOTORMAN, and THE HARROWING, as well as the Katrina Williams mystery/thriller series, A LIVING GRAVE, A PARTICULAR DARKNESS, and the upcoming A MOMENTARY LIFE.
