When the FBI showed up at Tyler Graham’s door in 2010, the newly appointed manager of his grandfather’s million-dollar horse breeding business was shocked to learn that he was inadvertently working for Mexico’s Los Zetas crime syndicate, who were laundering money by buying, breeding, training and racing horses. In Bloodlines: The True Story of a Drug Cartel, The FBI, And The Battle for a Horse-Racing Dynasty, Texas Observer investigative reporter Melissa del Bosque expands on her 2014 article with three years of research and in-depth interviews to tell the story through the eyes of the two FBI agents – one of whom was a rookie – on the case. Del Bosque’s book has garnered a lot of attention, including from movie star Channing Tatum, who’s signed on to produce and star in a movie based on it. 5 p.m. Sunday. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit brazosbookstore.com. Free.
