Jonathan Davis creates Rehder's outrageous characters with enthusiasm and vitality in this Texas Hill Country mystery. John Marlin, the amiable game warden, hopes that Lucas Burnett, a likable juvenile delinquent, wasn't home when his house burned down and that John's old friend, rancher Phil Colby, isn't involved in other matters of concern: a missing SUV owner, a missing Corvette, and a state senator who is being blackmailed. Davis's comic timing and casual narrating style add realism and panache to Rehder's crackling dialogue. This story, with it wacky plots and subplots, enables Davis to exercise his vocal versatility in finding unique voices for such oddballs as Texas good old boys, poachers, and Marlin's current love interest.
