Dr. Gabriel Hill discovers his brother Mike has been murdered. The brothers have been estranged due largely to Mike's drug habit and criminal activities. Of course, Gabe decides to investigate Mike's death while at the same time trying to learn about the brother he hasn't known for a long time. Thrown into the noirish stew is the foxy but dangerous Abby and the unforgettable psychopath Tyler. Ron Brown's debut novel HILL COUNTRY is a sturdy narrative populated by gritty folks and filled with tight jams. His laconic prose reminds me of Ken Bruen and Peter Rabe, and the hardscrabble setting he uses is in rural Texas that the great Charles Williams wrote about. I liked reading this entertaining noir that should also satisfy other fans of the genre.
