Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Blanco County, Texas, where the right to bear arms is about to go very, very wrong…

GUN SHY

Its just days before the National Weapons Alliance rally in Blanco County, and things couldnt be off to a worse start. First, an illegal immigrant is killed in a questionable hunting accident. Then, when local game warden John Marlin starts poking around for clues, he uncovers an astonishing secret—one that threatens to bring down the NWA. Turns out the host of this years rally, heartthrob country superstar Mitch Campbell, is not the Stetson-wearing, gun-toting, bull-riding man he appears to be…and someones planning to out him for the pill-popping, snowboarding, former rock-and-roller from Vermont he really is. Soon the entire town of Blanco finds itself in the dead center of a national scandal…and heading straight into the line of fire.

“Imagine Carl Hiaasen with a Texas accent.”

—The Denver Post

“Straight-shooter Rehder…packs firepower and poignant surprises.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Synopsis:

Welcome to Blanco County, Texas, where the right to bear arms is about to go very, very wrong. In his most ambitious, hilarious, and commercial novel yet, Rehder mercilessly skewers all sides of America's gun culture. Martin's Press.

Soon the entire town of Blanco finds itself in the dead center of a national scandal…and heading straight into the line of fire.

Synopsis:

The National Weapons Alliance rally in support of every American's right to bear arms is meant to garner huge publicity.  And the host of the event is none other than the NWA's newest spokesman, handsome country superstar Mitch Campbell.

What nobody suspects is that the Stetson-wearing, gun-toting, bull-riding Campbell is a fraud. He¹s really Norman Kleinschmidt, a pill-popping, snowboarding, former rock-and-roller from Vermont.  To Campbell¹s dismay, someone from his past is about to make that secret a big, big problem.

Meanwhile, when an illegal immigrant is killed in a questionable hunting accident just days before the rally, local game warden John Marlin starts to poke around.  It¹s not long before an astonishing series of events threatens to bring down the very carefully marketed Mitch Campbell, and maybe the NWA along with him.
