James Lee Burke, best-selling author of the Louisiana-based Dave Robicheaux crime fiction series, now begins a new series with a new landscape. In Cimarron Rose, Burke brings his talent for lyrical writing and hard-edged suspense to the American West. Billy Bob Holland is a lawyer for the people of sunbaked Deaf Smith, in southern Texas. Although occasionally he is haunted by memories of a violent past, his life is serene-until a local guitarist, Lucas Smothers, lands in jail for raping and murdering a young woman. As Billy Bob gathers information to defend him, the evidence soon points to the son of a wealthy local businessman. In the ensuing battle, money is pitted against the law. But a deeper struggle also arises, for Lucas is Billy Bob's illegitimate son. Through Tom Stechschulte's compelling narration, you'll climb into Billy Bob's Avalon and thread through the neon-lit streets and crowded bars near the Mexican border. James Lee Burke's vivid characters are aswirl in a world that will linger deep in your mind, like a crimson sunset in the western sky.
