A lot of intrigue is afoot in East Texas in these latest novels from Texas authors May Cobb, Joey Hartstone, and Joe Lansdale. In Cobb’s My Summer Darlings, three life-long friends’ worlds turn upside down when a mysterious and charming stranger shows up, but things must be too good to be true. In Hartstone’s The Local, a small-town attorney must dig uncover secrets and wade bad blood in order to learn the truth about the murder of a long-time mentor. In Joe Lansdale’s Born for Trouble, life seems to be settling down for beloved series characters Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, but as it turns out there’s more crime-solving adventures and thrills to be had.
