Ross Thomas's Briarpatch coming to TV!

Ross Thomas's Briarpatch is coming to USA Network on February 6! 

Briarpatch follows Allegra Dill (Dawson), a dogged investigator returning to her border-town Texas home after her sister is murdered. What begins as a search for a killer turns into an all-consuming fight to bring her corrupt hometown to its knees. The season celebrates the beloved genres represented by Ross Thomas’ book -- a stylish blend of crime and pulp fiction -- while updating his sense of fun, danger and place for a new generation.
The season also stars Jay R. Ferguson (Mad Men, The Romanoffs), Brian Geraghty (Chicago P.D., Ray Donovan), and Edi Gathegi (StartUp). The first season will shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

How exciting! Grand Master Ross Thomas was one of the most clever, sophisticated, and accomplished prose stylists in modern crime fiction. Some of his characters were almost Dostoyevskian in their complexity and his wit was singular and sardonic. John Patrick Lang
