Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jeff Abbott's "Do Unto Others" is certainly an impressive mystery debut, but while the thrills add to the story, many stereotypical "small-town" characters subtract from it. Basically, according to this book: all "Christian" characters are hypocrites, extortionists or psychotic killers. The more interesting(and sympapathetic ones) is a Vietnam vet/drug dealer, a car salesman with a dirty secret(one of this book's better subplots), and a nurse character. This book does realisticly portray Alzheimer's, so that's a plus. 3 stars

This book introduces the character Jordan Poteet for the beginning of several good mysteries. I feel like the discovery that Jordy's father isn't who he thought it was is important to his character development in this book. It also sets the stage for the frame of mind that Jordy is in through the book's main plot line - the investigation of Beta's death.
Living in Texas for the past 6 years makes the setting of these books feel homey even though I live in a different location of Texas. It also causes the action to feel closer to home and heightens the suspense for me.
Overall, Jordy is a warm, likable character. The fact that he is not a professional PI, but manages to stumble through a murder mystery makes his character easy to relate to. I recommend giving the Jordan Poteet mysteries a try starting with the first one (Do Unto Others) even if you just check it out from the library. I highly recommend reading any of Jeff Abbott's other books featuring Whit Mosely.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jeff Abbott catches the atmosphere of small-town Texas to perfection in this, his first novel. His hero is Jordy Poteet, just returned from Boston to care for his mother who has Alzheimer's. In contrast to his job as editor in Boston, Jordy becomes the head librarian in his old hometown. His nemesis is Beta Harcher, a religious zealot who is singlehandedly attempting to censor many of the best books in the library. Jordy and Beta have a loud disagreement, and the next day Beta is found murdered. Jordy's old schoolmate Junebug, now the town sheriff, fingers Jordy as the chief suspect. Jordy sets out on his own investigation as an act of self-defense. He discovers a list of townspeople which Beta compiled and beside each name is a scripture reference. Jordy talks to each person on the list and looks up the Bible verses, in an attempt to solve the murder. This book is well-written and has interesting characters and a well-conceived plot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jordy Poteet runs afoul of the local religious fanatic in his little Texas town. Since he's the head librarian, she sees him as the main purveyor of filth in their small community. When she wallops him with a copy of DH Lawrence's Women in Love, he makes a threat that will come back to haunt him. She's found dead in the library of a wallop from a baseball bat. A list of names followed by Bible verses leads to Jordy uncovering a multitude of sins among the population. And why is his mother, an Alzheimer's patient, on the list? The answer to that question leads to a profound change in Jordy's life. Distinctively Southern in tone, Abbott's debut talks with a Dixie accent. His small town characters ring true-- from the local police force to the little old lady who writes steamy romances to the preacher and his wife. This is a promising start. I've already begun the followup and, so far, it is just as enjoyable.
