It is 1969, and flames can be seen on the horizon, protest wafts like smoke though the thick air, and Easy Rawlins, the Black private detective whose small agency finally has its own office, gets a visit from a white Vietnam veteran. The young man comes to Easy with a story that makes little sense. He and his lover, a beautiful young woman, were attacked in a citrus grove at the city’s outskirts. He may have killed a man, and the woman and his dog are now missing. Inclined to turn down what sounds like nothing but trouble, Easy takes the case when he realizes how damaged the young vet is from his war experiences – the bond between veterans superseding all other considerations.

Clement Paddon, sheriff of Keith County, Nebraska, was narrowing down his investigation into a local stock theft ring. His probing made someone nervous enough to assassinate him along a lonely stretch of track between Ogallala and Alkali. The only witness was Long Rider, an Absaroke warrior, Army Scout and horse thief who had ridden away from the Little Big Horn disgusted with the Army’s inability to defeat the Sioux.
Jack Seaver, Paddon’s deputy, who had left his own stormy history behind in Arkansas, was determined to hunt down his friend’s killer. Whoever it was, had no qualms about killing one lawman and would have no problem with killing another, and it could be anyone around him.

by Connie Lewis Leonard
Rating: 4.9 #ad
What if the things you left behind are better than you remembered, better than you ever imagined? Thirty years ago LeAnn Kane left the dust and dirt of West Texas behind, vowing never to return. After a successful career with the Chicago Symphony, now she’s running back home – running for her life. While hiding from a murderer, the last person she expects to see is her high school sweetheart, her first and only love. His laughter sounds better than any melody she could play on her violin. His smile, as smooth as butter on hot cornbread, melts her insides, tempting her to stay in Texas. But her life is in Chicago – or is it?
Donald Howard worked hard to rise above the back-breaking work of the oil fields. The sought-after success hasn’t brought happiness or fulfillment. His failed marriage to a Houston socialite didn’t help, either. Seeing LeAnn again brings back the raw emotion of his first love, his innocent love, his trusting love, full of fantasies and hopes. After thirty years of telling himself he hated her, his heart betrays him. Or maybe he has betrayed his heart all these years. She’s dead set on returning to Chicago. He’s going with her – even if it kills him…
