The Devil's Country (Arlo Baines #1)

THE DEVIL'S COUNTRY                       HARRY HUNSUCKER

Former Texas Ranger Arlo Baines didn’t come to the tiny West Texas town of Piedra Springs to cause trouble. After his wife and children were murdered, Arlo just wants to be left alone. Moving from place to place seems to be the only thing that eases the pain of his family’s violent end.
But a chance encounter outside a bar forces him to rescue a terrified woman and her children from mysterious attackers. When the woman turns up murdered the next day—her children missing—Arlo becomes the primary suspect in exactly the same type of crime he is trying desperately to forget.
Haunted by the fate of his family, and with the police questioning the existence of the dead woman’s children, Arlo decides it’s his duty to find them. The question is, just how deep will he have to sink into the dusty secrets of Piedra Springs to save them and clear his name?

PAT'S REVIEW

Arlo is a former Texas Ranger. He has not gotten over the death of his wife and daughter and has been traveling parts of Texas. He also just wants to be left alone. This all ends when he steps off the bus in a small town named Piedra Springs. It is here that he is confronted by a woman and her two children for help. Seeking them out after he first walks away, he can only find her two children. When he begins to ask questions to the sheriff in town looks to him as the primary suspect. This only adds to his suspicion that something is definitely wrong. Deciding without really any choice he begins to look into the reasons behind why he cannot find the woman who asked for help in the first place. The story is for people that like Jack Reacher and those types of books. I found this to be an excellent story with very good characters. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
