“Doing the right thing means you don’t eat”

So begins the sweltering narrative of District Manager, Mason Dixon, a haunted man serving Texas House District 100. After a constituent reaches out to his office with disturbing information about twisted activities going on in district, Mason finds himself drawn into a game of cat and mouse with a malevolent entity.
While these events unfold, Mason begins dating a county judge’s assistant. Brenna is a single mother who is ready to start the next chapter of her life. Can she and the stoical Mason connect? Or will she become collateral damage to his unorthodox, occupational hazards?
Mason soon finds that the danger has reached the highest ranks of the district, and that the century-old structure where he offices is not haunted, but instead possessed by an all too real menace.
Can a man who is profoundly broken restore order when the very core of order itself has been corrupted? 

“Matt Minor knows Texas politics from the inside, and he weaves a devious tale of deceit and death and even a little romance. Buckle your seat belt and hang on for the ride.”  — Bill Crider

The District Manager to me read kinda like a Janet Evanovich novel with the witty humor and a mystery to solve but on a much darker level than what Janet's are. With each new character that gets introduced, it made me wonder where is this story going and why does the dogs and power plant have to do with the mystery but as things start unfolding and you have Mason falling in love again after his wife was murdered only the year before this story started, it all starts making sense that will lead to a pivotal point that it will all click to where this story is leading to.

I do have to admit that ending, I didn't see that coming but it did make for a explosive ending and to have the last chapter saying where each person was after everything was done with, made for the most perfect way to really end a book. I can promise this book will have you up late at night and for me, reading this book during a major thunderstorm with lots of lightning that apparently I didn't really noticed due to me reading this book, says much about this book!! Also having Whataburger included in the story-line was perfect for this story and you can't get more Texas than that!

Thank You to Matt Minor for writing a pretty good mystery that was kinda hard to put down especially during the last 100 pages!!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Lone Star Book Blog Tours!
