Texas Jeopardy: A Texas Ranger James C. Blawcyzk Novel by [Griffin, James J. ]

Texas Ranger Jim Blawcyzk lands in hot water when he kills a drug dealer in a shoot-out between the Rangers and a gang of modern day outlaws deep in the heart of Texas. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg as he uncovers the criminal connection between these same drug dealers and a slew of murders taking place across several Texas counties. When the hit men come after him and his family, they get more than they ever bargained for—the fight is on, and Jim Blawcyzk is one Ranger who is determined to get his man, or die trying. As a deadly shooter chases his wife, mother, and baby son through city streets, Jim takes the battle to him in the most personal way he can. A Texas Ranger to the bone, Jim Blawcyzk vows to protect and defend his family, friends, and beloved home at any cost, in this deadly TEXAS JEOPARDY…

What's New?

Jim will be doing a book signing October 5, 6 and 7, 2018 at the Cheshire Horse, in Swanzey, New Hampshire.

Starting October 2018, Jim will be reviewing books for True West magazine.

September 2018: Jim is on his national tour, visiting Ranger Bruce Sherman in the Dallas, Texas area, visiting retired Ranger Jim Huggins near Waco, stopping in at the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, visited Llano for research for the upcoming book (Murder Most Fowl), attended a Mike Blakely concert in Fredricksburg, stopped in to visit firearms expert Karl Rehn of KR Training, and is heading to the Western Fictioneers convention in Oklahoma City, OK.

June 2018: Jim attended the re-enactment of the battle of Little Big Horn and visited the actual Little Big Horn battleground. He also visited the Buffalo Bill Heritage Center in Cody, Wyoming on his way to attend the 2018 Western Writers of America annual convention. He was also able to work in a visit to Deadwood, South Dakota.

During his visit to the Buffalo Bill center, he got to put on one of Buffalo Bill's hats - donated by a family member whose requirement for donation was that visitors would be able to touch and wear the hat. (Notice the rakish angle of the hat and all the others standing in line to wear it.)
