Alex Walters: Candles and Roses, Death Parts Us, and Their Final Act (Inspector McKay series) and Late Check Out, Dark Corners, and Snow Fallen (DCI Kenny Murrain series). Obviously, I liked Alex Walters and just kept reading. Haven't reviewed any of these yet.
Attica Locke: Heaven, My Home brings black Texas Ranger Darren Matthews back for another investigation--this time set in Jefferson, TX and on Caddo Lake. I have a review scheduled on my book blog for Aug. 26.
