"Texas Ranger Rory Yates is not keen for hero status. But it's unavoidable once his girlfriend, country singer Willow Dawes, writes a song about his bravery. Rory escapes his newfound fame when he's sent to the remote West Texas town of Rio Lobo, a municipality with two stoplights. And now, according to the Chief of Police, it has one too many Texas Rangers. Rio Lobo Detective Ariana Delgado is the one who requested Rory, and the only person who believes a local councilwoman's seemingly accidental death is a murder. Then Rory begins to uncover a tangle of small-town secrets, favors, and lies as crooked as Texas law is straight. To get to the truth before more people die, Rory is forced to take liberties with the investigation. The next ballad of Rory Yates may not be about a hero, but rather an outlaw song" --Amazon.

Rory Yates returns in Patterson's follow-up to "Texas Ranger." After becoming a national sensation for foiling a bank robbery, his jealous lieutenant sends Rory to a small oil town to get him out of the way. The people in the town seem off, and things aren't adding up in the case. Before long, he has to decide if he can solve the case and still stay on the right side of the law.

TEXAS OUTLAW is the 2nd book in the Texas Ranger series by James Patterson and Andrew Bourelle. I loved it. The first book, TEXAS RANGER, was very good. The plot in this one was excellent, great character development, lots of twists and turns. Takes place in rural west Texas. Very much looking forward to a 3rd edition - please hurry Mr. Patterson!

Not a lot of meat on this turkey. Better than the first book in the series, Texas Ranger, but still not great. An easy read, written at the third grade level, but doesn't go too deep on the characterization. If you're looking for a character-driven story, this isn't it, unless you like your characters cardboard and flat. Meh.
