Heaven, my home
The thrilling follow-up to the award-winning Bluebird, Bluebird: Texas Ranger Darren Mathews is on the hunt for a boy who's gone missing - but the boy's family of white supremacists is the real target. Nine-year-old Levi King knew he should have headed home sooner; now he's alone in the darkness of vast Caddo Lake, in a boat whose motor just died. A sudden noise distracts him - and all goes black. Darren Mathews is trying to emerge from another kind of darkness. After the events of his previous investigation, his marriage is in a precarious state and his career and reputation lie in the hands of his mother, who's never exactly had his best interests at heart. Now she holds the key to his freedom, and she's not above a little maternal blackmail to press her advantage. An unlikely possibility of rescue arrives in the form of a case up Highway 59, in a small lakeside town where the local economy thrives on nostalgia for antebellum Texas - and some of the era's racial attitudes still thrive as well. Levi's disappearance has links to Darren's last case and to a wealty businesswoman - they boy's grandmother - who seems more concerned about the fate of her business than her grandson. As he races to find the boy, Darren must battle centuries-old suspicions and prejudices, as well as new threats reignited in the current political climate. In this thrilling novel about crimes old and new, Attica Locke proves that the acclaim and awards for Bluebird, Bluebird were justly deserved.
