Mark, Dreamboat, Doug Swanson. features Jack Flippo, The character is an ex-reporter in Dallas. The first in the series is Big Town. I liked this better, but I wouldn't call it a must read. Swanson reminds me a little of Pete Hautman and maybe early Hiaasen.

I think you definitely should read Big Red Tequila, Rick Riordan. It's also set in Texas (San Antonio) It's Riordan's first Tres Navarre book. All the ingredients are there for a classic hard boiled book, but Riordan hasn't quite put them together yet. He could be very good in the future. His next, Widower's Two-Step won an award. I don't remember which one it was. Mark
