ONE OF THE BEST THRILLER'S I'VE READ THIS YEAR!

Texas Ranger Sonny Hawke rides a Dodge truck instead of a horse, but you wouldn’t know that from how he handles a particularly nasty blend of Mexican smugglers in Reavis Worthan’s Hawke’s War (Kensington, $9.99, 422 pages). This elegant thriller that reads like a modern-day western conjures memories of gunfighters of lore, a tradition Hawke proudly holds up while riding the ranges of Texas’ Big Bend National Park. The stalwart Ranger finds himself the victim of a trap, outnumbered and outgunned in classic fashion, as he’s left to rely on his wits as well as his bullets. Good thing he’s a crack shot, just like Wortham who hits the bulls-eye dead center in this tale worthy of both Louis L’Amour and James Lee Burke. One of the best thrillers I’ve read this year, featuring emotional landscapes as sprawling as the physical ones.
