Publisher's Summary

Texas attorney and former Texas Ranger Billy Bob Holland has many secrets. Among them is Vernon Smother's son, Lucas, a now-teenaged boy about whom few know the truth: Lucas is really Billy Bob's illegitimate son. When Lucas is arrested for murder, Billy Bob must confront the past and serve as the boy's criminal attorney. As a result, he incurs enemies that are far more dangerous than any he faced as a Texas Ranger.

Critic Reviews

"Will Patton's narration [is] delivered with the appropriate blend of swagger and country-western grit." (Chicago Tribune) "Cimarron Rose is a fine, multitextured novel, full of Burke's lilting, elegiac prose and unflinching in its portrait of the human heart in turmoil." (Booklist)

Anything Burke Writes....

I am a big fan of anything James Lee Burke writes and Will Patton narates. PERIOD. This was the first of this character series for me. I will "read" the others.

Abridged

Sad that the story was so chopped up when the author and narrator have such talent
