Synopsis: Thereís more to the famous tale of how Lyndon Johnson bulldozed his way into the U.S. Senate on the strength of 87 questionable votes. This is the story of a political boss and the sophisticated small-town lawyer who brings him to his knees. Itís the story of a hired gun hiding in Mexico and the Texas Ranger who haunts his trail. Itís the story of a political assassination gone wrong, of intrigue that begins in a murky 1948 election and ends at the doorstep of a vice president promoted in crisis. In short, Texas Mutiny: Bullets, Ballots and Boss Rule is a tale of the Wild West in modern times.
Texas Mutiny is a true story told in novel form and related by a fictional newspaper reporter. It is set in a forsaken part of Texas where barren soil, mesquite and a burning sun shape the fortunes of the people. Vast poverty and incredible wealth live side by side in this land, making it fallow for corruption, deception, vote stealing, embezzlement and every sort of vice. Texas Mutiny is about the struggle to topple the oppressive feudal order that gripped the people of this land for generations
