RARA-AVIS: Texas Wind

I've been reading bits and pieces of THE BIG BOOK OF NOIR, and there's a section where Ed Gorman mentions 90 authors and one or two of their novels. TEXAS WIND is listed by James Reasoner, but when I search for it on Abebooks the author is J.R. Roberts. Is this the same book? My guess is yes but I don't want to buy the wrong book.

And my other question is why did Gorman choose this book, apparently a western, instead of some of the other Reasoner books in the Mike Shayne series? Is TEXAS WIND is a rare example of a western noir?

Bottom line is that I'm figuring that this book is by "our" James Reasoner, here on the list. Good god, James, did you see the company you're keeping with the others on the Gorman list? It's a Who's Who of the hardboiled/noir masters. You da man!

thanks, miker
