Overview
It s near the end of 1965 and Constable Cody Parker of Center Springs, Texas, has a frightening sense of gathering storm clouds. His dreams prove accurate when he is ambushed and nearly killed on a lonely country road during an unusually heavy snowfall. The attack leads locals to worry that a terrifying killer known as The Skinner has returned. As his nephew, Cody, recovers, Constable Ned Parker struggles to connect a seemingly unrelated series of murders, and the people of northeast Texas wonder why their once peaceful community has suddenly become a dangerous place to live. Investigating, Ned, Cody, and deputy John Washington cross paths with many colorful characters: cranky old Judge O.C. Rains; the jittery little farmer Isaac Reader; the Wilson boys, Ty Cobb and Jimmy Foxx; and a mysterious old man named Tom Bell. Of course, Ned s preteen grandchildren, Top and Pepper, are underfoot at every turn. When Cody follows his main suspect across the Rio Grande into Mexico, Ned understands that to save his nephew, he will have to cross more than a river: he will have to cross over to the right side of wrong."

Violence is on the rise in the small town of Center Spring, Tex., in Wortham’s exciting third Red River mystery (after 2012’s Burrows), this one set in 1966. Constable Cody Parker—along with his uncle, Constable Ned Parker, and John Washington, a black deputy sheriff—discovers that his remote area near the Oklahoma border is becoming a pipeline for some murderous and unrepentant drug dealers, and further, that there might be an informant within the sheriff’s department. Cody unwisely decides to follow some of the dealers across the Mexican border. Folksy neighbors, good old boys, and Bible-thumping grandmas all speak with a twang so thick it could only be cut with a chainsaw. Two preteen cousins, Top and Pepper, a tomboy, give new meaning to the term “reckless endangerment.” Readers will want to see a lot more of the (mostly) law-abiding Parker clan. Agent: Jeanie Pantelakis, Sullivan Maxx Literary Agency. (July)
