Thanks right back at ya, miker. Yeah, Ed has always liked that book. The other TEXAS WIND is one of the Gunsmith series. J.R. Roberts is Bob Randisi
(at least most of the time). I'm pretty sure Bob wrote the Gunsmith with that title. I've read it and didn't mind the duplication of the title. As Bill Crider mentioned, my TEXAS WIND is a PI novel, as well as my first novel. An homage to Ross Macdonald, if you will. (Or as a reader once said to a friend of mine who ran a bookstore at the time, "He just ripped off everything in the Lew Archer books!")

Best, James
