Annotation:
Hill-country lawyer Billy Bob Holland returns to keep Houston oil tycoon Earl Deitrich from reeking more havoc on his life and the lives of his loved ones in this sequel to the Edgar Award-winning CIMARRON ROSE. Having already married Billy Bob's high school sweetheart Peggy Jean Murphy, Earl is now threatening Billy Bob's oil-rich landowner friends, arranging the false arrest of a troubled business victim, and committing arson and murder through a San Antonio youth gang. When Billy Bob's illegitimate son is suddenly swept into the chaos, the wise country attorney steps in to face his nemesis.
Author Bio
James Lee Burke
Though he began his writing career writing literary novels, James Lee Burke turned to writing popular mysteries in 1987, with a series of novels featuring New Orleans ex-cop Dave Robichaux. After his wife and father are murdered, Robichaux explores the darker sides of New Orleans from the perspective of a man who has been around the block a few times. Burke's hard-boiled prose style has earned him legions of fans, numerous bestsellers, critical acclaim, and an Edgar Award for best novel.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"No one writes more beautifully about the dry sage Texas landscape of Texas....The book feels more like an old-fashioned Western than a contemporary mystery at times, but that's part of the attraction. Like the wood of its title ('some trees add a layer of new wood under their bark each year. The core of the tree grows stronger and stronger, until it's almost like iron.'), Burke's stories last." - Paul Skenazy 10/10/1999
