Milton T. Burton has charmed readers for years with his Texas mysteries, notable for their backwoods flair, down-home characters, and Southern-flavored sense of humor. In These Mortal Remains, Sheriff Bo Handel returns in a mystery which will have Burton's many fans hooting and hollering. 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.

He uses a gravelly tone with perfect pacing for Bo's dialogue and thoughts. Bo's a guy who firmly believes heOs doing the job the voters elected him to do. As newcomer Dr. Afton Spencer builds a white supremacist compound, the crime rate risesNa black deputy is shot, and a young woman disappears. BoOs policing style is challenged when a multiagency task force is brought in to help. Family drama with his son and a new love interest add dimension to BoOs character.
