I absolutely LOVE Ben Rehder's books. He REALLY knows the Texas culture and isn't afraid to boldly depict the funny, embarrassing, wacky as well as the good, strong and honorable "proud to be a Texan" aspects of our unique Republic of Texas! I swear I have met most of these people at one time or another! I've read the entire "Blanco County" series and most recently "Gone the Next", which was a little lighter on the "tongue in cheek", Texas "self deprecating" aspect, but great in it's own way. I'm glad he is writing new ones, just not as fast as I can read them, as I'll be out of new books soon ... so keep 'em coming at us, Mr. Rehder!!! You are a true Texas treasure!!!
I started out reading his "Blanco Co." series from B&N for my Nook, but then noticed that newer versions weren't available. Thankfully, B&N went the Google Store route and added the Kindle reader app, so now I'm able to get those through Amazon, tap on the...
Having read murder mysteries for over three decades, I've become quite adept at figuring out "whodunits." Until Ben Rehder came along. I'm hooked on these rollicking, convoluted, impossible to figure out books! I'll admit that there are times that I want to say, "Please, not another new character/plot line!" But Mr. Reader weaves all the seemingly unrelated threads together seamlessly and to a perfect conclusion. From the classy and uncorruptable game warden, John Marlin, to the bumpkin duo of Red and Billy Don, you're bound to fall in love with these characters and crave more.
Rehder's novels always seem to have a number of stories with different characters running concurrently that all come together at the end. Very much like a ; "Stienfeld" episode. Gun Shy" was just too much of a good thing. There were so many themes with so many characters I started losing track. I found myself flipping back to discover who this guy is and how did he fit in the story. He did illustrate the gun control argument well, showing the "nut cases" on both sides, with the game warden being the voice of reason in the middle. Still, nowhere being close to many of his better yarns.
