The former police chief of the small town of Jarrett Creek, Texas, SAMUEL CRADDOCK, finds out retirement isn't going to be quite as peaceful as he'd hoped.
Seems his replacement is a hopeless drunk who couldn't "investigate his way out of an outhouse with two doors," according to a local attorney.
So when Craddock's old pal Dora Lee Parjeter is murdered, he reluctantly steps in, in A Killing at Cotton Hill (2013), the first in a promising new series.
Unfortunately, considering the purview of this site, when Craddock steps in, he does so well that he's re-elected chief.
Still, a pretty good series, and despite the badge, Craddock operates in an independent mode familiar to fans of such "cops" as Harry Bosch, Dave Robicheaux et al.
