    This was even better than the first book! And while you could skip reading the first book- as the author does a commendable job explaining who the repeat characters are and why they behave they way they do, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice not reading The Far Empty first. ...

    Much ado about not much. In HWS, the sheriff's department from Scott's debut novel, The Far Empty, investigates a group of hard case white supremacists who show up in a nearby town. The book features the same stilted dialogue and unrealistic plot devices as the previous one. Too much ...

    Two years after the death of Sheriff Ross, Sheriff Chris Cherry has another body on his hands and a gang of white supremacist bikers living in a nearby town... The Far Empty wound up being fantastic so I scooped this up when it popped up on Netgalley. The second book set in the s...

    High White Sun is a solid follow-up to Scott?s 2016 debut hit, The Far Empty. A prologue set in 1999 recounts the murder of Texas Ranger Bob Ford, the long echo of which reverberates through events of the current day like the howling of the wind off the distant Mexican mountains. In ...

    Review is of a free copy from a Goodreads giveaway. I am most impressed with this author. I enjoyed the novel so much I am going to have to get a copy of his first novel, "The Far Empty" to read. Author develops some characters that are evil to the core, but very intelligent - and ther...

    I received a free copy of"High White Sun" through Goodreads to read and review. I wavered between giving this crime novel a three star or a four star rating. Certainly the second half of the book deserved four stars. It was exciting, with an interesting cast of major and minor charac...

    I appreciated the author's prose, and a portrait of West Texas was well painted. The author describes the arroyos and mountains using vibrant and sensual descriptions. I was unsure of his choice of first person for one character, but it did allow a second location of the story to seem ...

    High White Sun is a worthy sequel and a great second novel. The Earls were a fun, villainous family. Only minor suggestion would be to use less ellipses in novel #3... ...

    Sheriff Cherry is back in his new role as Sheriff instead of Deputy. He brings with him a fresh faced Hispanic woman and a craggy old widower who has nothing better to do than teach the new sheriff and his deputy some of the police work he?s learned through the decades. Not far from ...

    J Todd Scott isn't just playing a part in the Modern Western genre. He owns it. He could take anyone to a standoff and get out of it walking tall while the competition bites the dust. He is a born storyteller who will never know the meaning of Sophomore Slump. In his second nov...

    Again, I wish I could give this author more than 5 stars. If you like to read about Texas in today?s world this is the book for you. But do yourself a favor and read the first book in this set first, ?The Far Empty.? It?s not necessary to read it to understand this one, but it ...

    What a great read. One of the best books I have read in years. I spent more time in the characters heads than in my own for days. A fabulous collection of complex and believable personalities. Get that word processor going again. I can't wait! ...

    J. Todd Scott's second book about Big Bend County is very good, if somewhat patchy. He has a firm grasp of his interesting characters, maintains their consistency throughout the narrative. His blends of description, dialogue and action continue to be solid. The growth of Scott's two ma...
