December’s picks range from the welcome return of a great character, the debut of two new ones, and an anthology that looks at the relationship between fiction and film.
The Lost Are The Last To Die by Larry Sweazy
Sweazy brings back Sonny Burton and former Texas Ranger dealing with an arm he lost in a gunfight with Bonnie and Clyde. Here he helps his ranger son track down an escaped convict he knows all too well. Sweazy creates a uniques place and time for two human yet very lethal men to square off.
Alibi For A Dead Man by Wilson Toney
Bug and Roche, two operatives for The National Detective Agency, investigate a car accident where the driver was dead before the crash. The mystery leads to the hunt for loot from a bank heist, some shootouts, and a lot of quips in the fun throwback to the light P.I. novel.
