I had completely forgotten about former Dallas Observer editor Julie Lyons’ debut book until Wilonsky sort of obliquely brought it up the other day. Turns out it comes out in just over a month, via WaterBrook Press, a division of Random House. So, you know, kind of a big deal.
As for what it’s about: A rogue cop is forced to go undercover in a high-profile super church run by his childhood best friend, who may or may not be the kingpin behind a Mexican-American drug cartel. Except pretty much the opposite of that. I’d read that undercover-church book, though. On a plane ride, or maybe around the pool.
