    When Hackberry Holland became sheriff of a tiny Texas town near the Mexican border, he'd hoped to leave certain things behind: his checkered reputation, his haunted dreams, and his obsessive memories of the good life with his late wife, Rie. But the discovery of the bodies of nine illegal aliens, machine-gunned to death and buried in a shallow grave behind a church, soon makes it clear that he won't escape so easily.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this one, and was sorry when it was over. Fascinating word portraits of the SouthWest (I know, I used to live there and his descriptions are vivid!) The characters, with the possible exception of Preacher, are real, engaging and you can't help but develop your own attachments and personal interests in almost all of them. The protagonist Hackberry and his deputy Pam almost come to life in Burke's writing, and they are wonderfully believable characters. While there is the predictable good versus evil climactic battle of sorts, it isn't overdone with pyrotechnics and gore, it just sort of comes off as real life. This is a really good book, and the narration is top notch. You really can tell the characters by their unique voices given by Will Patton, and almost don't need the author saying "he said" "she said". I must check out more of Burke and Patton!
