Edgar Award nominee James Hime's first venture into Texas crime writing was praised as "one of the most impressive debuts in years" by Booklist. His second mystery novel set in Texas, Scared Money brings back Jeremiah Spur, an ex- Ranger who's just been recruited to work with the CIA on a special case. Meanwhile, Spur's friend, Deputy Sheriff Clyde Thomas, investigates a drug-related murder in a usually quiet small town.

"Ed Sala captures the various regional and foreign accents in this complicated international mystery. Sala finds unique voices for the large cast of characters involved in numerous coincidences. The plot switches between investigations by former Texas Ranger and current CIA operative Jeremiah Spur and African-American Deputy Sheriff Clyde Thomas, plus the flashbacks of Hungarian refugee Benjamin Farkas. Listeners are taken to Dallas, Mexico, Budapest, Paris, and Vienna as the three story lines converge. Sala's flat narration style revs up when the action gets deadly, and his smooth reading of Hime's terrific dialogue is a treat. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
