Publisher Comments:

Bo Tully, sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, has dealt with small-town crime throughout his long, storied career. Now, contemplating retirement after years on the job, Tully is faced with perhaps his most perplexing case yet. When area bald eagles start getting picked off by a ghost-like killer, and when a prominent local rancher is murdered by an arrow with eagle fletching, things gets complicated fast. In this fast-paced whodunit, Tully has a vast array of suspects to chose from—including the ranchers gorgeous, bird-loving wife who mysteriously leaves for a ranch in Mexico the day of the murder; the beautiful chef at the local house of ill repute, who is well-known as a budding ornithologist; and the ranch foreman, who is rumored to be having an affair with his bosss widow.

Will Tully put the pieces of the puzzle together, yet again? Will sending his dad, the former sheriff of Blight County, along with his number two man, down to Mexico help solve the mystery? And what about the mysterious large circles in the snow that Tully finds around the ranch—with no footprints leading in or out of the area?

It all adds up to another engrossing series of twists and turns. And in the end, Tully gets his man . . . or woman . . . or does he?

Review:

"In humorist McManus's sleepy sixth and final Bo Tully mystery (after 2013's The Tamarack Murders), the sheriff of rural Blight County, Idaho, and his ex-sheriff father, Pap, find the body of rancher Morgan Fester, known for philandering and shooting eagles, in a snowbank, shot in the back with an arrow. The unpopular Fester was killed around the time his free-spirited, bird-loving wife headed to Mexico for the winter. The murder investigation pointedly lacks urgency, tension, or conflict, though the author's storytelling skills remain strong. McManus focuses mainly on the disillusionment of his hero, who can no longer go along with the 'Blight Way,' a concept that allows 'a certain degree of elasticity in the execution of legal matters.' Still, series fans will appreciate this affectionate send-off, which closes with a career retrospective of Sheriff Tully from the local paper, the Silver Tip Miner.

The latest (and maybe the last) in the Bo Tully mysteries of Pat McManus is as funny as all the rest. Only one death, but no shortage of suspects, because nobody could stand the guy. Makes for quick reading, too!
