Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Wortham’s third entry in his addictive Texas procedural set in the 1960s is a deceptively meandering tale of family and country life bookended by a dramatic opening and conclusion. C. J. Box fans would like this title; for the Texas storyteller frame, pair it up with Milton T. Burton.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Readers will want to see a lot more of the (mostly) law-abiding Parker clan.” Publishers Weekly
“Traber Burns’ gravelly voice works well with the author’s colorful characters. Giving stern voice to the lawmen, exuberance to the Parker children, and authentic Mexican accents to the prison guards and families, Burns demonstrates the wide vocal range this sweeping installment deserves.” AudioFile
“A very good mystery that will also transport readers to a different era.” Booklist
“Reavis Z. Wortham has masterfully reinvented the true meaning of ‘heart pounding’ by bringing fears to life right where we live. You’ll burn through the pages of The Right Side Of Wrong from the first bone-chilling page.” Sandra Brannan, author of the Liv Bergen Mystery Series
