Book Review – The Gray Man – Twilight

Jim Curtis has returned to his Gray Man series, and Twilight is an excellent continuation to the story of a Texas lawman who’s a little more than he appears to  be. This is another excellent story about family and duty, told by a man who knows more about both subjects than just about anyone I know.

Never count an old man out, even when he’s hanging up his hat!

Deputy Sheriff John Cronin is looking forward to a quiet retirement, working on the ranch, and handing it off to his granddaughter Jesse. And he’s got to pass on a generation worth of investigations, but it’s not as easy as handing over the case files and the keys. First, he’s got to train Aaron Miller to fill his role, from the way to dress for rural juries to the finer points of stakeouts and murder investigations, Texas style.

Between the oil patch workers and the cartel’s drug runners, there are plenty of loose ends for him to tie off… or terminate…

Twilight tells the tale of how John Cronin tries to pass along his legacy to the next generation, but the world just won’t let him go.  Curtis continues to expand on the work of earlier books in the series, and the action keeps moving throughout this book.  With a wry sense of humor and an eye toward how real people interact in both good and bad times, he shows us how a warrior and peace officer hangs up his spurs.
