About the Author

When he's not writing, Rick Gavin frames houses and hangs sheetrock in Ruston, Louisiana. "Ranchero" is his first novel.


Praise for "Ranchero ""Gritty, earthy and often hilarious... The irresistible "Ranchero "has the humor of a tall tale told by Mark Twain."--"The Wall Street Journal ""A very colorful trip ... Gavin turns out phrase after phrase of ear-pleasing insight into the Delta and those who live there, and dialogue that sounds just right... And when Gavin waxes funny, he really is funny, with enough comedic situations to keep everyone laughing as Reid tries to recover the Ranchero."--"The Associated Press ""In his debut, Rick Gavin offers a comic romp through the Mississippi Delta, "less a place than a boot on your neck," where eccentricities thrive, pathetic criminals flourish and the absurd can pass for the norm... Gavin's eye for the odd turns out dark, slapstick humor akin to Tim Dorsey's Serge A. Storm novels and Ben Rehder's series set in Blanco County, Texas... Gavin's fine eye for details, his compassion for humanity and his dark sense of humor make "Ranchero" work... Gavin's dialogue is Elmore Leonard-perfect."--"South Florida Sun-Sentinel "on "Ranchero""This first novel from Gavin is a little miracle. The dialogue is pitch-perfect.... One of the most enjoyable crime debuts in a very long time."--"Booklist" (starred review) "Gavin's first novel is a sure winner. Reminiscent of Tim Dorsey's "Serge Storms" series but with a more likable protagonist, it will appeal to down-home good old boys and their armchair counterparts. Recommended."--"Library Journal" (starred review) "Full of inspired comic hyperbole, Gavin's rollicking debut does for the Mississippi Delta what Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiaasen do for Florida... Readers will eagerly await Reid's next adventure in the Delta."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Rick Gavin brings a true ear for dialogue and his gifts as a literary stylist to this series debut. A kick-ass backcountry novel."--"New York Times" bestselling author Randy Wayne White
