I have to admit; Texas Ranger is my favorite James Patterson book of all time. I have read many novels this past year that were kind of out there, with their unlikely heroes. Not only are the characters in this book likeable and intriguing, but the story line is believable and compelling. I also like the fact that this book captured my interest, and kept me riveted and wide eyed until the wee hours of the morning.
Rory Yates, the hero of our story, brings honor to the line of the Texas Rangers. Being a retired Navy Police Officer, I enjoyed following him through the clues and the rabbit trails of his case. While there was the occasional swear word or two, it was all done in line with the events happening. As in any great western novel, there were plenty of fist fights, yelling matches, shoot outs, and clue following. One thing that I especially appreciated was how all the loose ends were neatly dealt with at the end of the book.
All in all, I was very pleased with Texas Ranger. I hope to see more of Rory Yates, as I have become a fan. I would love to see him move to a larger city and take down some major criminals. At any rate, if you like the west and law enforcement, I think you will enjoy his book. It was well worth the fifteen buck I paid for it.
I give Texas Ranger 8 out of 10 stars
