Restaurant owner Sylvester Bradshaw is a curmudgeon who believes he's invented a process that improves the taste and shelf-life of food, but he doesn't want to give up control (over the invention or over his downtrodden family) by dealing with marketers. When Sylvester disappears mysteriously, his daughter asks retired Texas ranger and small-scale rancher Jeremiah Spur to find him. Jeremiah is concerned that his wife has come down with food poisoning, but his presence in her hospital room makes ...more
This was a pretty fun book. Our daughter gave it to me for Christmas for two reasons: 1. she hasn't given me any armadillo things in a good while, and 2. we were in Dallas, and this was a book by a local author. Good characters, fair plot. The hero is a retired Texas Ranger, and there were a lot of jokes about his being a football player. No, he was a Real Texas Ranger. A man who owns a catfish restaurant has invented a machine that takes all the 'fishiness' from the catfish, but he won't market ...more
James Hime brings back retired Texas Ranger Jeremiah Spur and puts him right in the middle of murder, corporate espionage, his wife’s serious and partly unexplained illness, a redneck family, and a star football player’s family. Amazingly he brings all these components together and forms them into a highly readable story.
I wanted to read a mystery, and although this is, it wasn't as much of a page turner as I had hoped. It is interesting, but I found it slightly predictable and I had to push myself to finish it.
I gave this book four stars, not necessarily because of the story line (which at times I had trouble following) but because of the characters. Loved his humorous development of the characters :-)

On this 3rd outing of Jeremiah Spur, the regular characters don't progress much, and there's a multitude of secondary characters that are broadly drawn, but still a good slow-paced novel.
A fun mystery read with quirky characters in a small Texas town and a slightly veiled warning about the safety of our fresh food.
I love this author! I hope the library gets more of him soon, I want to read his style more. Write more, Mr. Hime!!!
Good read. Interesting characters. Action takes place in a small Texas town. Colloquialisms aplenty.
Laura Gary
third book in a trilogy about small town texas and its residents... in my opinion , the best one of the three
Great characters (the author has a real ear for Texans) but the mystery ended up being pretty obvious.
Beau Smith
Superior tough guy crime. Witty, funny and knuckle busting.
Mary Kay
