“There’s a term we use in the west, the genuine article, and those words fit Reavis Wortham to a Texas T.”
“If you look for authenticity in your books, you’ll swoon over Reavis Wortham. He’s Texas true.”
—C. J. Box
“Think: Elmore Leonard meets James Lee Burke.”
Judge. Jury. Executioner. One man is taking the law into his own hands. His targets are criminals who slipped through the justice system. From California to Texas, this relentless avenger hunts down the unpunished and sentences them to death.
But now he’s on Sonny Hawke’s turf. A Texas Ranger committed to his job, Hawke will not abide vigilante justice—especially when innocents are also in the line of fire. The trail of bodies stretches across the Lone Star State to the most savage clan East Texas has ever seen. And Hawke is the only one who can stop them . . .
“Wortham knows how to ratchet tension with pitch-perfect West-Texas flavor.”
—Lone Star Literary Life
