Heaven, My Home (Mulholland, $27), by Attica Locke, is the second book in the Highway 59 series and it’s sure to wow you as much as its predecessor, Bluebird, Bluebird did. We’re back again with Texas Ranger Darren Matthews. His assignment is to find a kidnapped child; however, this child is linked to a well-known family of white supremacists. Though Darren is dedicated to his job, as a Black man, this fact plagues him. If the child is still alive, will he grow up to be a racist and wreak havoc, like the rest of his family? Is Darren able to put his personal feelings aside to do his job well and bring the kid home? As a fan of Locke’s work, I found this to be one of her best books to date. Heaven, My Home can easily be given to the mystery reader on your holiday list or anyone looking for an entertaining read with an engaging plot and a host of characters they’ll never forget.
