The endless Texas landscape hides all manner of sins…

Special Agent Tucker Snow knows there's big money roaming the fields under the wide Texas sky—and the cattle rustlers committing large-scale thefts on remote ranches know it, too. But when a prominent local rancher dies unexpectedly and his property is quietly sold to an unknown buyer, Tucker suspects there's something more sinister going on in his jurisdiction than the usual steal-and-resell racket. Still raw after the tragic death of his wife and young daughter, the lawman can't bear the thought of more innocent lives destroyed by people whose greed poisons everything around them. 

Working alongside his brother, Harley, Tucker uncovers a dark ring of organized crime that goes well beyond cattle rustling—a breed of deception and greed that has turned into a silent killer and will take down anyone who crosses its path. The question is whether Tuck and Harley will be able to shut it down before it finds the people they love the most…

Praise For…

"Reavis Z. Wortham knows Texas, Texans, and how to write rock-solid thrillers and mysteries. The Broken Truth starts with a bang and never lets up. A wild, unpredictable ride." — Johnny D. Boggs, nine-time Spur Award winner

"All-out murder and mayhem, modern-day issues and bad guys, old-fashioned law enforcement—Reavis Z. Wortham and his 'cattle cop' Tucker Snow take us on another thrill ride with their trademark country wit and Texas charm in The Broken Truth." — USA Today bestselling author of the Detective Delaney Pace crime thrillers and the Patrick Flint historical mysteries

"With The Broken Truth, Reavis Z. Wortham once again earns his readers' attention and respect in the most time-honored of ways: the inimitable skill of weaving a compelling yarn that makes one sorry to reach the end. This second entry in the Tucker Snow series is pitch-perfect, the author's eye for detail and ear for dialogue operating in top form. There's enough authentic Texas grit to scratch that Western genre itch, and enough contemporary tech and investigative action to keep the pages turning for the contemporary thriller aficionado. Wortham expertly operates along the borderline between the neo-Western and the modern-day crime thriller without a visible seam. Highly recommended." — Baron Birtcher, LA Times bestselling author of Reckoning
