A well-deserved 5 star rating for a book that i can easily envision becoming a movie. I actually checked twice to make sure that what i was reading was based on historical fact! 1930's in TX and Joe Black goes from being a wealthy bootlegger during prohibition to a dance hall owner out in the boonies. Handsome with an easy smile when he needs one he can just as quickly break a bottle and cut your throat. In other words.... a sick killer. Yet women did whatever it took to stay on his 'good' side?

Legend of Gatorman will give you the shivers. Gatorman you ask? Oh yeah. His pets that he kept hungry and in a pit out back were alligators. For real.
The author did his research and good god it shows.....your heart will break as you cringe and just pray that maybe what you KNOW is coming .....won't. ( )

In the 1930s, deep in Bexar County (pronounced Bear County), a man from a powerful family finds a way to make money on the other side of the law. Joe Black operates successfully as a bootlegger, and when prohibition ends, he establishes a dance hall. One thing different from other dance halls and bars is the fact that he has live alligators that he feeds as entertainment for his guests. Joe Black soon finds himself in a love triangle that ends in death for one of the lovers and near-death for the other. One of his workers discovers this dark secret, and Joe Black stops at nothing to stop her from exposing his evil deeds. Who lives and who dies as the plot unfolds in a twist of terrifying events? In the end, there are secrets that shed a sense of light in all the darkness. Light triumphs over evil and lives on forever due to the heroic deeds of one of the victims. This story is inspired by true events that unfolded over a period of fifty years.
