"The glass exploded out of the back window of the Chevrolet sedan like somebody had thrown a brick from the inside out. Once he saw the muzzle flash it only took Sonny Burton half a second to realize somebody had takern a shot at him."
But real Rangers never really quit, so it's not long before Sonny's back in the game, agreeing to help out the hospital janitor whose daughter has gone missing, in the hard, tight A Thousand Falling Crows (2016), a promising debut which pretty much nails Depression-era Texas to the wall.
Known primarily for his westerns (he's won a couple of spur awards), Sweazy manages to capture the wind-blown dust and dirt of the Texas Panhandle country, and then peppers his story with dead-on dialogue and laser-sharp characterization.
