Publisher's Summary

Running from a traumatic and chequered past to become sheriff of a dried-out, broken-down border town in south Texas, Sheriff Hackberry Holland soon finds himself dealing with more than just his own demons after nine dead prostitutes are dug up in the desert. The search for justice pits Holland against hired guns, unscrupulous pimps, drug dealers, and a psychotic killer known as The Preacher.

Beware the Preacher

I love listening to the guy who narrates this, he also did No Country for Old Men and funnily enough there was a similarity in one of the main baddies to the McCarthy murderer.

A group of Asian women are found buried in a church's grounds. The Sheriff is a grizzled Korean POW still stuck in the past, while a local Afghan vet is somehow involved in the women's deaths.

Good story

A good storyline, with believable characters. The narration by Tom Stechulte was excellent, and he did a good job of voicing the individual characters. I'm Looking forward to listening to the next story in the series.
