Goodbye Horses

Some brief overview of book

A Sheriff, Deputy, Texas town, murder, cover-up, short-socks, a political race, a Guinness Book of World Record attempt, irritable bowels, an old biker gang, fear of public speaking, a hypnotist, a man with an 80-pound scrotum, and a one-footed clown. To call it a brutally black comedy would be putting it mildly. Goodbye Horses is a crime story with no mastermind.

A horror narrative where the monsters are senselessness, apathy, and an insatiable desire to be known. Sheriff Junior Miles presides over his town with all the enthusiasm of someone going through the motions. The small city is overwhelmed by all variety of crime and needs something more than Junior and his young overly-sensitive deputy Bubba to keep the peace, but that’s what they had.

To make matters worse, Junior has bigger unrealized dreams. Dreams that leave him with an abstract sort of existential longing for something more and no map for how to get there. But after tragedy strikes close to home his search for importance takes a different road when he finds a way to use his job as a catapult to something grander.

After making a bold vow to keep his town free from crime for one-year Junior sets off a chain of ridiculous events to make it happen. Ends up creating an avalanche that threatens everything and everybody including himself. And when he’s thrown into the spotlight for a controversial presidential candidate’s campaign, his sweetly naive deputy Bubba makes it his goal to bring an end to the madness.

This book is written in the spirit of Terry Southern, Harry Crews, and the Coen Brothers. Its dark humor often spills into absurdity and the political satire on occasion bumps into farce.
