African-American police detective in Eastern Texas

Locke is a rare mystery writer in that she's African-American and sets her stories not in urban America but in backwoods Texas, near the LA border so her characters are a mix of both white and black and Native American. This book also includes some White Nationalists. Her detective is a black Texas Ranger, a rare breed who must traverse the world of the Aryan Brotherhood, a small Native American group, as well as black farmers who have owned the land for generations, while looking for a missing white boy, son of one of the White Nationalists. Locke has a sharp, compassionate eye and the book is rich with subplots and complexity. A good read.
