Instant #1 New York Times bestseller
In James Patterson's white-hot Western thriller, a Texas Ranger fights for his life, his freedom, and the town he loves as he investigates his ex-wife's murder.
Across the ranchlands and cities of his home state, Rory Yates's discipline and law-enforcement skills have carried him far: from local highway patrolman to the honorable rank of Texas Ranger. He arrives in his hometown to find a horrifying crime scene and a scathing accusation: he is named a suspect in the murder of his ex-wife, Anne, a devoted teacher whose only controversial act was ending her marriage to a Ranger.
In search of the killer, Yates plunges into the inferno of the most twisted and violent minds he's ever encountered, vowing to never surrender. That code just might bring him out alive.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We always expect James Patterson to deliver a fast-paced thriller, but this joint effort with Andrew Bourelle also offers a stout-hearted lawman hero, an atmospheric Southwest setting, and a classic showdown between good and evil. With his laconic, gritty delivery and authentic-sounding accent, stage actor Christopher Ryan Grant brings considerable western flavor to Patterson and Bourelle’s Texas Ranger hero, Rory Yates. As Rory investigates his ex-wife’s murder, his strong moral code is challenged by a devious criminal. Satisfying on all counts, Texas Ranger feels like a jalapeño-flavored take on Patterson’s big-city hero, Alex Cross.

This is not a very good. The detective part of the story is not logical or suspenseful. If your looking for a tough guy type Ranger story... this ain’t that. The majority of the story is explaining how he feels about what happened, is happening, and could happen. The story just isn’t that good the way it’s told. I couldn’t help but think this was written with the purpose of transitioning the tough guy characters into more sensitive /needy men, that recklessly fumble around from one error to the next. Shameless product placements also... save your money, and find something better written.
Well it was a listen to in a long drive
This was mild story line written well enough... nothing bad to say...
