This is Bill Durham, the author of Amarillo. Since Amarillo was published, the greatest compliment I have received from readers is that the characters are very authentic to the Texas Panhandle and that the Panhandle itself is an essential character.

About "Amarillo," From Amarillo

Mar 11, 2019

I’m Joe Lovell, a trial lawyer from Amarillo, Texas, here to tell you about Amarillo, a crime and courtroom novel by Bill Durham, set in -- you guessed it – my town. 

This book is called Amarillo and it’s about a broke, lonely, disenchanted, sober-alcoholic, Jewish criminal defense lawyer from Brooklyn, whose car breaks down in Amarillo on the way to Phoenix, during the middle of a cold, fall dust storm, leaving him to find work so he can fix his car and blow on down the road.

Joe Lovell, an Amarillo trial lawyer will open a series exploring Bill Durham’s novel Amarillo.  Although he began his career in banking, he graduated from Texas Tech’s School of Law and began his law career in 1987. 

Author and actor Bill Durham shares Texas Tech as alma mater and both share a respect for the people of the Texas Panhandle, so it is fitting that Joe opens the series exploring a mystery set in “his town.”
