Specific chapters among the 54 that appear in Texas Confidential include “Rogues of the Alamo,” a look at the things that just about everyone connected with the famous battle had to hide; “The Ivory Tower of Death,” on the bloody 1966 University of Texas rampage that left 18 people dead and 42 wounded; “Porno, Texas Style,” which includes a list of adult actors from the state; and “The Aurora UFO Incident,” about the state’s oldest documented UFO incident, which occurred in 1897.
“Everything is bigger in Texas,” as the saying goes, and this certainly applies to the history of sleaze, iniquity, and violence associated with the Lone Star State. Texas Confidential: Sex, Scandal, Murder, and Mayhem provides a glimpse at the state’s seamy underbelly and delves into some of the most striking episodes of lust, corruption, slaughter, and chaos in Texas and the people who have perpetrated them. To a colorful rogues’ gallery of lunatics, corrupt politicians, prostitutes, murderers, and every other sort of scoundrel that appears in the book, author Michael O. Varhola has added a smattering of UFOs, mythological beasts, and other paranormal oddities.
