Josie Grey is the Police Chief in Artemis, Texas, about as far away from anywhere as one can get. She ran away from Indiana to get there. Now her town is being sized up as a potential corridor for the Mexican cartels to run guns and drugs through, especially since La Bestia and the Medrano cartels have already taken over Piedra Labrada across the river from Artemis. Hampered by the town's mayor who is either corrupt or stupid, Josie is caught between the town and the cartels as she tries to keep a lid on the simmering violence. After one shoot-out at the river, the body of a gun runner is found outside Artemis. Josies doesn't know who to trust. If you appreciate setting as a primary part of plot, this is the book for you; West Texas is there in all its sweeping majesty. Add the eccentric population of Artemis, all 2,500 of them and you have a book well worth reading. Recommended for all Craig Johnson, Nevada Barr and Steve Hamilton fans.
