The town of Sierra Blanca is caught between cartel violence and Soviet subversion with only a Texas Ranger, the Sheriff, and a CIA burnout to protect it.

Sierra Blanca is a genre twisting, pulpy novella that blends classic spy novel and Western themes. The Cold War and the Drug War collide in the distant town of Sierra Blanca. 

The thrilling novella was named a 
Top 5 Texas Crime Novel for 2017 and is available now in paperback and Kindle.

Don M. Patterson's debut graphic novel is a yacht noir thriller set against the seedy underbelly of the international fancy fish trade. Follow the disappearance of disgraced fancy-fish breeder, Freddy Reno, and the mysterious Lama Fish in his possession, through a shaggy-dog detective story with a pop-art sensibility. Best enjoyed while listening to the smooth, seaside sounds of the seventies.
