I'm a big fan of Abshire's, as I've mentioned a number of times. Yes, they are set in Dallas.

If we can put off the Southwest discussion for several more years, I can perhaps be finished with my Dallas-set PI novel. I've only been working on it for about seven years, so I could hardly be expected to have it ready for a discussion next month. It's not like anybody can crank one of these things out in a mere lustrum!
