Book Review: "Caddo Cold: A Bill Travis Mystery" by George Wier

The seventh in the series finds Bill Travis once again trying to help a client who has also become a friend. A familiar pattern in these novels and one that played out in the first book The Last Call. That resulted, among other things, in a marriage to Julie, and a number of children.
