Dutch Curridge Summary

Part To Kill a Mockingbird and part Ugetsu, Bryant's Dutch Curridge examines the life of early 1950s Fort Worth from the bottom up.

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.

In his spare time, he enjoys taking in the local music scene. He likes western swing and jazz music almost as much as he likes Ruthie Nell, the spunky writer for the Fort Worth Press.

Things are all going smoothly until Dutch - his friends all call him that, even if he isn't thrilled about it - is contacted by an old friend to help locate her missing son.

Hard boiled crime and mystery meets good old-fashioned ghost story as Dutch, who knows a great deal about the ways of the world, learns a little about himself and how he fits into the scheme of things.

    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.
