Fort Worth Police Detective Jake "Cowboy" Hunter finds himself looking down the barrel of a gun after chasing a suspect through a dark alley. His split second reaction saves his life, ends another, and launches his team on a fast-paced search for the truth. What seems to be an open-and-shut case of homicide turns into a complicated series of murders and drug overdoses intertwined in the world of narcotics distribution, forcing Hunter and his team to suspect both the good guys and the bad guys.
While Hunter struggles with his role in taking a life, his partner Detective Billy Sanders helps lead the investigation as they discover the hidden impact of drugs on users, dealers, first responders, and their families. Hunter's team enlists the help of the FWPD Narcotics division and even Internal Affairs to sort through a confusing web of suspects, victims, leads, and false clues on their way to resolution. And redemption. The revelations don't stop until the very end. The story highlights the collateral damage of America's unsuccessful War on Drugs, and how even casual drug use causes devastating consequences. Unseen Carnage is the third of the Jake Hunter series of mystery/suspense novels.
