Arlo Baines is an ex-Texas Ranger . He’s on a one-way bus ride away from the horror and pain of the death of his wife and children. He decides to stop in a small West Texas town and runs into a women with her two children pleading for help to get away from the men who are trying to kill them. Things happen and Arlo is drawn into a massive web of violence and murder. The whole town seems to be in on it, but no one’s talking. It seems like he is the only one who cares about finding out the truth. Harry Hunsicker is a master of words. Reading his prose is a twist of hard-core noir, smooth and sleek like a Phillip Marlowe of the West! His short, terse dialogue recalls Raymond Chandler. Arlo is edgy and tough, ready for anything. I loved it! Recommended for any mystery lovers.
