On Friday, April 12, from 1 to 5 p.m., South Texas author Joseph E. Chance will be at the Joe Barnhart Bee County Library to talk about his new book set in Mathis.

Murder in Mathis is the story of a family feud in 1920s Mathis that goes beyond the pale with the murder of a helpless physician who gets entangled in it. The murderer, who believes he has perpetrated the perfect crime, gets caught by a master sleuth. He is tried and sentenced to the electric chair. It is a story ripped from the headlines almost 100 years ago, giving the reader a look not only into a sociopathic killer but life in 1920s rural South Texas as well.

Dr. Chance is a fifth generation Texan and former mathematics professor at UT-Pan American in Edinburg, where he now resides. He has written 10 books, been a newspaper columnist and has written numerous scholarly articles for professional journals as well as articles for popular magazines.
