Publisher Comments:

The eagerly awaited third novel in Patrick F. McManus's bestselling mystery series finds Sheriff Bo Tully with his hands full of elusive killers, eccentric backwoods characters, and irresistible women in this latest romp through the wilds of Blight County, Idaho.

Sheriff Bo Tully is the kind of western lawman who's as good with the ladies as he is with his guns, and he never lets a death threat get in the way of a good barbecue. He's a man with a sense of humor, which comes in handy when trying to establish order in Blight County.

In this latest tale, Tully pursues a seventy-five-year-old missing persons case in which a pair of gold miners (a two-man drilling team known as a double-jack) mysteriously disappeared just as they hit the mother lode in a remote part of Blight County. Meanwhile, a second, more threatening case looms large. After serving only two months of a life sentence, a mentally unstable murderer named Kincaid — a nasty piece of work if there ever was one — manages to escape prison, setting his sights on killing the man who put him behind bars: one Sheriff Bo Tully. In an effort to lead his would-be killer into the open, and also to do a little gold prospecting and fishing while he's at it, Tully heads north with his ex-sheriff father, Pap, and his friend and expert tracker, Dave.

As the two cases play themselves out, Sheriff Tully finds himself hunting down one murderer who's probably long dead, and being hunted by another who's very much alive. A fast-moving tale of murder, mayhem, and mining, The Double-Jack Murders is Patrick F. McManus's darkest, most entertaining mystery yet.

Review:

"Lucas Kincaid, an escaped killer, is planning to get even with Blight County (Idaho) sheriff Bo Tully, who put him behind bars, in McManus's amusing third Sheriff Bo Tully mystery (after 2008's Avalanche). Tully insists that the crazed Kincaid's being on the loose has nothing to do with him taking a little camping vacation with his father, Pap, and friend Dave Perkins. Tully figures the camping trip might draw out Kincaid, but his primary purpose is to try to solve the disappearance of gold miner Tom Link and his helper, Sean O'Boyle, in 1927. The two miners were exploring a vein of ore in the Snowy Mountains when they went missing. The college-educated Tully is no rube. An artist of considerable talent and a clever politician, he's also a backwoodsman who rambles through encounters with women, lawbreakers and abandoned mines with the sangfroid of the most sophisticated lawman. Plenty of unusual and colorful characters add to the fun." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"McManus's latest crime caper will appeal to readers who enjoy comic mysteries featuring a zany bunch of police types like those in J.M. Hayes's Mad Dog and Englishman series." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Following Avalanche and The Blight Way, The Double-Jack Murders is the eagerly-awaited third novel in the bestselling Sheriff Bo Tully mystery series.

This is the type of mystery story I like. It has mystery, suspense, and comedy. McManus manages to throw a new twist in at the end that I didn't see coming. I'm looking forward to his next one. Be sure not to miss Dave the indian showing his violent side.
