    I recently received an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I did not receive it from the publisher and I'm under no obligation to write any review. Having said that...

    I loved this book.

    It hit all the criteria I need a book in this genre to hit. Real and believable characters that make sense, including (especially) the bad guys... check. Showing me things about "the seedy side of life" that I don't ever experience in my 9-5 job... check. A plausible story that doesn't make me jump through hoops to

    I appreciated the author's prose, and a portrait of West Texas was well painted. The author describes the arroyos and mountains using vibrant and sensual descriptions. I was unsure of his choice of first person for one character, but it did allow a second location of the story to seem more integrated, and helped engage his personality. Overall it was enjoyable to read and captured the nature of criminals, and the law enforcement officers who strive to prevent their actions.

    High white sun review

    Beautiful book and beautiful language. I give it 4 stars because I got a bit slow in the second half, though still a pleasure. Read it!

  • Vernon Luckert

    Review is of a free copy from a Goodreads giveaway. I am most impressed with this author. I enjoyed the novel so much I am going to have to get a copy of his first novel, "The Far Empty" to read. Author develops some characters that are evil to the core, but very intelligent - and there are indeed people like that out there. Get a copy of this book and enjoy.
