    Worst entry in the series to date. The same style of humor is present and the same energy goes into creating the new characters added to the vast cast, but no real effort is put into connecting the individual storylines.

    As surprisingly decent as Miami and San Francisco were, by this time, Butterworth seems to have lost his interest in his characters and their world. Not only has Butterworth forgotten how to create interesting (albeit one-dimensional) supporting characters, but the editors have stopped caring about editing: it shouldn't be too much to ask, even for a hastily-scribbled "cheap pop" of a tale, that the editors get names of characters spelled correctly, dialogue attributions accurate, and other word As surprisingly decent as Miami and San Francisco were, by this time, Butterworth seems to have lost his interest in his characters and their world. Not only has Butterworth forgotten how to create interesting (albeit one-dimensional) supporting characters, but the editors have stopped caring about editing: it shouldn't be too much to ask, even for a hastily-scribbled "cheap pop" of a tale, that the editors get names of characters spelled correctly, dialogue attributions accurate, and other words spelled properly. Another unfortunate sign that Butterworth is running out of ideas is the lack of resolution. We are used to abrupt endings in this series, but not really endings without the main purpose of the gathering of the gang even to occur! The purpose of this book is for the gang to go see the Dallas-Saints football game, and only Hawkeye apparently even enters the stadium in the final moments of the book. As noted above, the new characters for this tale are undeveloped and irritating. Though it appears Montreal continues the Romeo-Juliet subplot of this book, the time and attention to so many new and poorly-developed characters is inconsequential to the point that any scene featuring the new characters is irritating and distracting. Why Butterworth felt the need to create new Congressmen, when he already has plenty he could use, is inexplicable. Boris and Hassan only appear briefly, as well, which would be fine if they weren't replaced by uninteresting, even embarrassingly-stereotypical characters (Lance, Brucie, and Sitting Buffalo, especially). The characterization of Abdullah, likewise, is different - perhaps my memory is failing, but Abdullah seems to have gone from a small, Jamie-Farr-in-Cannonball-Run-like man to a huge, Boris-sized, white-bearded man. Almost everything is off in this book (Hawkeye even insults Trapper out of nowhere). The best part of the book is the brief character reminiscences of better characters from adventures gone by, especially Woody, Angus, Florabelle, Hassan, even Smilin' Jack (leaving us to think, again, why not just have him instead of these new Congressmen). As enjoyable as this series is, Texas is the weakest installment by far. Hopefully the last two Butterworth stories (and Hooker's final epilogue) will bring it back a little to its former enjoyableness (as Stephen Fry might say).
