"The shocking murder of a wounded veteran challenges the investigative skills of ex-chief Samuel Craddock. Just before the outbreak of the Gulf War, two eighteen-year-old football stars and best friends from Jarrett Creek, Texas signed up for the army. But Woody Patterson was rejected and stayed home to marry the girl they both loved, while Jack Harbin came back from the war badly damaged. The men haven't spoken since. Just as they are about to reconcile, Jack is brutally murdered. With the chief of police out of commission, it's up to trusted ex-chief Samuel Craddock to investigate. Against the backdrop of small-town loyalties and betrayals, Craddock discovers dark secrets of the past and present to solve the mystery of Jack's death"-- Provided by publisher.

Starts well, but gets bogged down with too many subplots.

Love Samuel Craddock. I have read 3 of the series of 5 and intend to read the other 2. Really good down to earth mysteries.

Fabulous new crime writer. This book is even better than her first. Character development, sense of place, plotting... Terry Shames does them all extremely well.
