Alvis Curridge is an ex-employee of the Fort Worth Sheriff's Department. When he isn't found at Peechie Keen's Bar & Kanteen, drinking and swapping stories with buddies, he is busy trying to keep things in line around Cowtown - even if that means occasionally tangling with his former boss.

Forth Worth, TX detective Alvis "Dutch" Curridge is back, and he's brought Slant Face Sanders and the gang along for the ride of their lives. When the bartender at Dutch's favorite hangout is murdered, it's up to Dutch to make things right. And this time, he'll have to do it without Ruthie Nell Parker.
Spirit Trap not only reunites the Fort Worth detective with his friends, Slant Face and James Alto; it also brings back favorites like Ruthie Nell Parker and Verbal and Noble Whitaker. There's a dead family in a small country house, a blind man working in a gun store, a vindictive dancehall owner, and a wild animal waiting at the edge of the woods. All have one thing in common, and it isn't their love for the Texas two-step.
Dutch Curridge leaves his beloved Fort Worth to find some answers in Old Mother Curridge, the greatest Dutch Curridge tale of them all. And yes, he gets naked in both a physical and metaphorical sense. It's a story about questions that lead to more questions. A story about stories, and each one comes with a price.
