Sheriff Bo Handel has run Caddo County in East Texas for 30 years. It's been mostly good. He keeps his nose clean and makes sure the drunks and ne'er do wells keep moving on down the road. Then the Methodist minister's wife's body is dumped on the front lawn of the parsonage and the kid Bo suspects killed her ends up dead, too; both killed with the same gun. Two bodies in three days is not business as usual in Bo's part of the world. Then guns for hire from Houston and Louisiana show up and more bodies pile up. Milton Burton is a masterful writer. He takes the reader deep into the piney woods of East Texas and you can hear the mosquitoes whine. Highly recommended.
