Cover Crush: These Mortal Remains by Milton T. Burton

For new visitors do I want to explain that Cover Crush is something that my friend Erin over at Flashlight Commentary came up with and I adopted the idea together with some other friends. And, now we try to put up a Cover Crush every week. You can check below my pick of the week for their choices this week!

Milton T. Burton has charmed readers for years with his Texas mysteries, notable for their backwoods flair, down-home characters, and Southern-flavored sense of humor. 

In These Mortal Remains, Sheriff Bo Handel returns in a mystery which will have Burton's many fans hooting and hollering. Bo Handel knows Texas's Caddo County inside and out, from the town drunks to the teen troublemakers with too much time on their hands. But when Toby, an African-American deputy and one of Bo's best cops, is shot and left wounded on the side of the road, Bo's eyes are opened to a side of his county that he's never before seen. A group of white supremacists are occupying a compound on the edge of town, and a few key members are determined to wreak havoc on those they hate. 

Suspenseful, provocative, and smart, These Mortal Remains is a fantastic final book from a beloved Southern talent.

Some thoughts about the cover:

I love reading books about small town and this has the look of it with the desolate gas station. I love the simplicity of the cover and the colors, especially the lamps at the gas pumps. I can almost feel the chill in the air, you know in the evening when the warmth is slowly disappearing and you wish you had brought a jacket whit you.

Check out what my friends have picked for Cover Crush's this week:

Flashlight Commentary
2 Kids and Tired Books
