Now that Throwdown 2.0 is over (and again, a huge thank you to everyone who participated or helped), I've got finally got some time to tell you about some of our new arrivals, just waiting for you to come in and check 'em out.

One of our most recent books is Compound Murder by Bill Crider. It's the 20th book to feature Sheriff Dan Rhodes and the quirky inhabitants of Gatlin County, Texas. In Compound Murder, Sheriff Dan is investigating the murder of an English instructor at the local community college. The student he arrests is the son of a survivalist who lives in a gated compound and daddy is less than thrilled with the arrest and with Sheriff Dan. Lots of folks had reason to hate the dead man, and along with his seemingly ever-increasing list of suspects Rhodes must also deal with his staff (who mean well, bless their hearts) and the quirky residents you'll find in any small town (but especially in a small town in Texas). If you like mysteries and haven't read Bill Crider yet, you really should.

Other recent arrivals include James Lee Burke's newest Dave Robichaux mystery, a new Ace Atkins mystery (He's the guy who's continuing Robert B. Parker's Spenser books), The Son by Philipp Meyer (an epic family saga set against Texas history), the latest Danielle Steel and The Feud by Dean King, which is a history of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. We've got a little something for everybody, so be sure to come on in and check us out.
