Bo Tully, sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, has handled small-town crime all through his lengthy, storied profession. Now, considering retirement after years at the task, he’s confronted with a life-changing case—not that the homicide of Morgan Fester, a foul neighborhood rancher shot with an arrow, used to be all that astounding on condition that he used to be a suspect within the fresh random killings of bald eagles.
What’s complicated is the crime scene itself: someone’s made an ideal circle within the snow, but there’s now not a unmarried footprint in sight. whereas the go-to suspect will be Fester’s faithless bird-loving archer of a spouse, Bo is aware there are too many of us who desired to kill the main unpleasant guy within the county. that features a gorgeous ornithologist operating the neighborhood residence of ailing reputation, and Fester’s randy ranch foreman. but if Fester’s attractive widow hightails it to Mexico, the line to fixing this crime takes a detour Tully didn’t see coming.
With a “style that brings to brain Mark Twain, artwork Buchwald, and Garrison Keillor” (People), Patrick McManus is an writer “everyone may still learn” (The ny instances e-book Review).
“Tully juggles a handful of most likely homicide suspects along with his ordinary wit and aplomb… [a] pleasant series…the mysteries are good crafted and surely suspenseful, now not basically an excuse for a few lighthearted goings-on, yet stable puzzlers of their personal correct. caution to McManus: you’d greater no longer allow Bo retire each time soon.”—Booklist
