The Chupacabra: A Borderline Crazy Tale of Coyotes, Cash & Cartels, the laugh-out-loud dark comedy thriller by Stephen Randel, is now sending fans into hysterics.

 

He is called El Barquero. He makes his trade along the border, smuggling guns and killing without remorse. When he's faced with one last mission, his perfect plan is unwittingly foiled by Avery, a paranoid loner obsessed with global conspiracy theories who spends most of his time crafting absurd and threatening letters to anyone who offends him. That means pretty much everyone.  What unfolds is a dark comedy of madcap adventure stretching from Austin to the West Texas border featuring a lunatic band of civilian border militia, a group of bingo-crazed elderly ladies (one packing a pistol nearly as long as her arm), a murderous and double-crossing cartel boss, a burned-out hippy, and a crotchety retired doctor and his pugnacious French bulldog. Read it to believe it.

Trail of the Chupcabra: An Avery Bartholomew Pendleton Misadventure, the sequel to the Amazon bestselling book, The Chupacabra: A Borderline Crazy Tale of Coyotes, Cash & Cartels, is now available and funnier than ever.

 

Avery Bartholomew Pendleton is back, and he’s just as crazy. Avery is a paranoid loner obsessed with global conspiracy theories who spends most of his time crafting absurd and threatening letters to anyone who offends him. That means pretty much everyone.

 

Still convinced of the existence of the mythical Mexican chupacabra*, Avery enlists the assistance of the Southwest Texas Revolutionary Armed Confederate Border Operations Militia (STRAC-BOM) and their manic leader, General X-Ray, to help him invade Mexico. Accompanied by Ziggy, a burned-out hippy, and an uncommonly large iguana named Nancy, the group follows the advice of a New Orleans voodoo priestess and heads straight into the Mexican desert.

 

Unfortunately for the motley gang of explorers, Mexico can be a dangerous place if you cross the wrong people—specifically, the Padre, a vicious drug cartel boss, and El Barquero, a murderous gunrunner who has crossed Avery’s path before. Naturally, mayhem ensues.

 

What unfolds is a laugh-out-loud dark comedy of insane humor, unforgettable characters, and chilling thrills.
