Bitterroot by James Lee Burke

When former Texas Ranger and current attorney Billy Bob Holland is invited to visit his friend Doc in Montana, he grabs his flyrod and looks forward to some quality R & R. All hopes of a quiet vacation are shattered after Doc's daughter is raped by a group of brutal bikers. Soon, the bikers involved with the crime are turning up dead and Doc is charged with murder. In addition, a psychopath rodeo clown named Wyatt Dixon, who has a grudge against Billy Bob for prosecuting his sister for murder back in Texas, shows up and adds to the mayhem. The beautiful Montana setting and equally majestic prose from Burke are in direct contrast with the violence that erupts. Check catalog for availability.
