Rate this:
A TV western star quits his successful series and returns to Dallas to make a documentary film that reveals the truth about his home town. His quest forces him to learn if he is capable of using his six-gun for real as he moves from booze and radical politics in oil men's palaces into the infamous Carousel Club and the underworld of arms and dope smuggling in a city ripe for the murder of a President."When anybody asks me what Dallas was like during the time of the Kennedy assassination, I always refer them to one book: Edwin "Bud" Shrake's STRANGE PEACHES." - Don Graham, Texas Monthly"A big novel, two parts anger to one part and surefire. And Edwin Shrake's narrative has been amply dosed with Dexadrine. There's not an ounce of fat on it." - New York Times Book Review
