Publisher Comments:

When the call comes in that Mike Wilson, the unlikable owner of the fancy West Branch Lodge, has gone missing, Sheriff Bo Tully is delighted. He'll have to stay at the lodge and investigate in luxury! But when an avalanche traps him there for the foreseeable future, along with his retired sheriff father, a motley group of vacationers, and a naughty old flame, life starts to get complicated. The missing persons case turns out to be a murder case, Tully discovers the avalanche was no accident of nature, and suddenly everyone starts to look like a suspect — even the murder victim! It's up to Tully to figure it all out in this comic romp through the wilds of Blight County, Idaho, from bestselling author Patrick McManus.


Writer and humor columnist McManus delivers the second, eagerly awaited book in his quirky, bestselling mystery series.

Thomas Kirby, May 2, 2008 (view all comments by Thomas Kirby)
This is the perfect type of mystery novel for me: Clean enough for family viewing, detective work, and suspense tempered by humor. It has the same bunch of "good guys" as the author's previous funny mystery, "The Blight Way". I recommend this to all readers, although any with the last name of "Scragg" had better have a thicker skin than most.
