Baker & Taylor
During a seemingly simple assignment, private detective Lee Henry Oswald is drawn into the dangerous world of high-stakes drug lords and double-dealing real estate developers as he races to save the life of his partner.

McMillan Palgrave
A terrific first mystery featuring a hard-nosed Dallas detective with the unfortunate name of Lee Henry Oswald. Dallas's answer to Dennis Lehane.

It's not easy being named Oswald, not in the city where Lee Harvey grabbed his fifteen minutes of infamy and choked it to death. It's especially hard when half the town seems determined to kill you for reasons as murky as the river that splits the city in two.
For Lee Henry Oswald, a private investigator, Gulf War vet, and terminal loner, it's just one more burden to face as he trudges through the gritty underbelly of the concrete and glass metropolis that is Dallas in the new millennium. A simple assignment turns deadly when Oswald asks the right questions in the wrong places, and finds himself drawn into a shadowy world of smooth-talking drug lords and double-dealing real estate developers. In the end, he learns that blood is not always thicker than water, especially the muddy tributaries of the Trinity River, where he confronts the deadly results of his own decisions as he races to save the life of his partner.
Reminiscent of the tightly wrapped works of Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Still River is a startling debut mystery.
