A Red River Mystery, Book 3. By: Reavis Z. Wortham. Narrated by: Traber Burns. In Burrows, Reavis Wortham juxtaposes gruesome crimes with a bucolic '60s landscape. It’s a surprisingly intense combination that kept me awake nights after not being able to put the book down. Length: 9 hrs and 19 mins. Wortham’s writing makes scenes and characters come to life.

Narrated by Traber Burns. Lyndon B. Johnson is president, Beatlemania is in overdrive, and gasoline costs thirty cents a gallon when Ned Parker.

Lyndon B. Johnson is President, Beatlemania is in overdrive and gasoline costs 30 cents a gallon when Ned Parker retires as constable in Center Springs, Texas. But his plan to live a quiet life as a cotton farmer is torpedoed. A phone call leads Ned to a body in the Red River and into the urgent investigation headed by his nephew, the newly elected constable Cody Parker. Together they work to head off a multi-state killing spree that sets northeast Texas on fire.

As the weeks pass, Ned's grandchildren, ten-year-old Top and his tomboy cousin Pepper, struggle with personal issues resulting from their traumatic experiences at the Rock Hole only months before. They now find themselves in the middle of a nightmare for which no one can prepare.

Cody and Deputy John Washington, the law south of the tracks, follow a lead from their small community to the long abandoned Cotton Exchange warehouse in Chisum. Stunned, they find the Exchange packed full of the town's cast off garbage and riddled with booby-trapped passageways and dark burrows. Despite Ned's warnings, Cody enters the building and finds himself relying on his recent military experiences to save both himself and Big John. Unfortunately, the trail doesn't end there and the killing spree continues...

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series. A 1960s Western coupled with the mystery was highly entertaining. This book on the other hand, reads more like a Dean Koontz novel. Perhaps if I enjoyed reading horror I would've rated this higher. But that's just not the case. The two children that provided humor and comic relief in the first book, were bratty in this volume. If the goal of this second book in the series was to leave you feeling creepy and in need of a shower, then mission accomplished.

That said, I felt compelled to read the third book in the series after seeing good reviews. Book three gets back on the mystery, law and order tract.

I have read both of Mr. Wortham's mysteries and found both of them to be outstanding. The earlier book, the Rock Hole, has a slightly more compelling plot but both are well above the average thriller/mystery. These books have a remarkable sense of place and time, encapsulating believable dialogue, the confines of a small Texas border town, and the dusty expanse of river bottoms and cotton fields stretching for what seems forever. The book alternates voice/POV from Top, the grandson of the outgoing Constable Ned, nephew of the new Constable Cody, running buddy/accomplice of his cousin Pepper, and that of a third person narrator. This device is so woven into the fabric of the narrative as to be relatively unnoticeable - a feat of some accomplishment.

Another strength of the book is the dialogue. Wortham uses expressions I have not heard since my own youth in the South and does so without forcing the accent or voice of the individual character. And the characters are well-developed and believable. Top has grown from the orphaned boy to a rebellious adolescent; Pepper is still a smart aleck with dangerous ideas, but haunted by the events of the previous book.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Warning - you should read Rock Hole prior to this book as the characters develop out of the situations protrayed there. Deduct 1/2 star because this book was not as compelling as Rock Hole - and the overall claustrophobia I got from spending too much time in tunnels with Cody.

This book is very well written, and if you like mysteries that give you the creeps without reference to the supernatural, you'll enjoy it. As a resident of the area that provides the setting, I can certify that Wortham's attention to detail of the setting, and this book is ALL about the setting, is thorough and he creates one of the longest sequences of suspense I've ever read. Read it. You'll like it.

Great stories by this author! Full of folksy Texas humor with some family drama. Small town sheriff has to solve big city crime in his small town. He's gettin' to old for this stuff. The story is well written with enough suspense and intrigue that sexual content is not needed. There is old fashion love between the sheriff and his wife. As well as their love for their grandson and his friends who manage to get involved/trouble in police investigations. If you want a good story that will keep you reading and you can let your older kids read, these are it.
  • Togor
excellent story WELL WORTH THE money
  • betelgeuze
Nightmares come true. The heroes trapped in a maze, stalked by a madman. What an entertaining tale. Populated by characters that grow and become familiar. A very good series.
  • Steel_Blade
Excellent take on small town Texas in the '60s, and, to some degree today.
If To Kill A Mockingbird was a series, this would be it! This is the second in the series and it did not fail expectations!
