When Austin native Donnie Cuinn accepts a job as an associate in a Texas Panhandle law firm, his boredom and disdain for Velda, a sleepy Texas town, is forgotten when he gets caught up in a struggle over water rights, possible radioactive contamination of the nation's largest underground fresh water supply, and the violence of an invading Mexican drug cartel. Along the way, Donnie learns to respect the local rancher, whose brother is at the center of the troubles, and to come to terms with the violent death of his young Mexican wife.
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
I feel this is slightly more enjoyable than the first, except the first had an more enthralling tale!
Donnie's life took a "turn for the worse" so he went to a small college to become a lawyer. The college was unaccredited but he reprieved help from a friend in obtaining a position in a small town in Texas. The Boss was impressed with him but, once again, Donnie's integrity was challenged so he created his own firm. Seemingly impossible, he made a success of his venture
He was approached with situations which didn't "add up". Would he have to jeopardize hi reputation? .
In book #2 of this series, Donnie is struggling with "ghosts" from his past as well a serious conflicts of the present.
This could really happen!
The introduction of new characters are just a realistic and in his first book. The scenes are ver vivid to the imagery.
This story is continually fast-paced and keeps the reader's interest
The Title fit, a does the cover. However, i believe if the cover and title were more detailed, more "browsers" would be interested.
**READER BEWARE: There are many suggestive sexual situations and profanity in this story.
This earns a Four and a Half Stars rating.

Meet the Author:
BOYD TAYLOR lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and their Havanese dog Toby. Necessities is the fourth novel in the Donnie Ray Cuinn series. In a former life, Boyd was a lawyer and a corporate officer. A native of Temple, Texas, he graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in government and an LL.B. from the law school.
Boyd's first novel "Hero" was prescient in its story about fake news. His second novel, "The Antelope Play," dealt with drug trafficking in the Texas Panhandle, an unfortunately accurate forecast. The third, "The Monkey House", involved commercial development of a large green space in the center of Austin, all too familiar to Austin residents. Whether his upcoming novel "Necessities" predicts future events with the accuracy of the earlier books remains to be seen.
