So far I've read 4 Jeffrey Abbott books and I have never been disappointed! I am sure more of his books will be on my Nook and stay on my 'Favorites' list.

This is the 3rd in the Jordan Poteet series. Jordy is the town librarian in a small Texas town - this is a cozy mystery and a good fun read.Back Cover Blurb:Twenty years ago, as Hurricane Althea lashed Central Texas, twelve-year-old Jordan Poteet and his friends decided to ride it out in their tree house. But in the still eye of the tempest, they raced for safety - and stumbled over the body of a beautiful girl.Now the six schoolmates who shared the grisly sight of death so long ago are being cooly murdered, one by one, day by day. By whom? Why? Unless Jordan and Police Chief Junebug Moncrief, another survivor of the storm, can answer those questions fast, it will be their turn to die....

Yeah, I know. I said I wasn't going to read anymore of this Jordan Poteet mystery series. But apparently I already had this one in my queue at booksfree so I read it when it got here. It seems to be the last of the series, too, written back in 1996, because books Abbott has written since then have a different protagonist altogether. Actually, that's kind of a shame, because this story actually had some teeth to it. It still had the lame names for the characters. I mean, Southern is fine but calling the chief of police Junebug just grates on me.Anyway, this story begins 10 years ago when a hurricane tore through central Texas and left a dead black girl lying in a forest to be found by six young boys, including Jordan and Junebug. Fast forward to today, and one of the men, Trey Slocum (Jordan's former best friend and now ex-brother-in-law who had abandoned Jordy's sister and her son), has just returned to Mirabeau, Texas, after a disappearance of many years. One by one, the now grown friends are being murdered, day by day, with Trey being the second victim. But who is doing this and why? And if Jordy and Junebug don't figure this out pretty quick, it just might be their turn to die.This one was the best of the three, but still pretty bland and mediocre. I'll give it a 3.

I loved this book! Jeff Abbott is an amazing author...the book full of twists and turns and whatnot. I keep it on my 'favorites' shelf along with all the rest of my 'Jordan Poteet Mysteries.' This book makes you thirst for more!

Disappointing. I have never read a Jeff Abbot book before and probably won't again.
