Synopsis: A man once claimed Fort Worth was such a sleepy town, no one even noticed a panther napping near the downtown courthouse. Ignoring the insult, Fort Worth happily adopted the nickname, "Panther City." Nine short crime stories set in Panther City remind readers of the threat of a seemingly quiet and tranquil predator to its unsuspecting prey. Do not awaken him.
Since he began work as a boy at his family's downtown diner, Burger & Shake, Tom Fegan always wanted to be a writer. The customers all had interesting stories and he grew to love them, realizing Fort Worth was anything but a sleepy city. However, to be a writer, Tom felt one also had to experience life as well.
A graduate of Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth with a Business degree, Tom spent ten years in the steel industry. Finally settling in as a security officer, he also devoted time as a Marine Corps Reservist, a Martial Artist, as well as an actor in 4 B-grade action flicks.
Panther City is his first book. The tales are based on crimes that occurred in the Fort Worth area but are fictional.
