Tonight we're digging down into the dark side of Texas with two born and bred Lone Star crime fiction authors. Crack open a Shiner and pull up a chair as these guys talk tough about their new books.
REAVIS Z. WORTHAM - The Right Side of Wrong Humor, suspense, horror, precognition, and life in the tumultuous 60s are examined with an unflinching eye by the author of the Red River series. Burrows ended as 1965 drew to a close as is ambushed and nearly killed on a lonely country road during an unusually heavy snowfall. With that attack, the locals begin to worry that The Skinner, from The Rock Hole, has returned. Constable Ned Parker struggles to connect a seemingly unrelated series of murders as his nephew recovers. As the summer of 1966 approaches, rock and roll evolves to reflect the increasing unrest in this country, and the people of northeast Texas wonder why their once peaceful community has suddenly become a dangerous place to live.
GEORGE WIER - These mortal remains Crime fiction great Milton T. Burton passed away before he finished his final book, These mortal remains. George Wier stepped up to tie up loose ends and polish the novel. Sheriff Bo Handel knows Texas's Caddo County inside and out, from the town drunks to the teen troublemakers with too much time on their hands. But when Toby, an African-American deputy and one of Bo's best cops, is shot and left wounded on the side of the road, Bo's eyes are opened to a side of his county that he's never before seen. A group of white supremacists are occupying a compound on the edge of town, and a few key members are determined to wreak havoc on those they hate. Suspenseful, provocative, and smart, These mortal remains is a fantastic final book from a beloved Southern talent.
TIM BRYANT - Southern Select Fort Worth, TX detective Alvis "Dutch" Curridge is back, and he's bringing Slant Face Sanders and the gang along for the ride of their lives. When the bartender at his favorite hangout, Peechie Keen's, is murdered, it's up to Dutch to set things right. And this time, he has to do it without Ruthie Nell Parker.
