Run Time: 5 hrs and 6 mins
Truman Smith is hired by a former classmate, Lance Garrison, to investigate a prairie chicken killed on protected land. He kind of doesn’t want to take the case, but does so because he has a thing for a different former classmate, Anne.
- If you read the back cover copy, you have pretty much the entire story.
- The end isn’t really satisfying.
- Law enforcement in the book is either incompetent or corrupt, which is annoying.
- It’s a first-person book, but I don’t find Truman Smith a very likable character, which kind of made the book less enjoyable. He’s old school, pavement pounding type of detective.
- The excitement is okay, but the rest is a lot of navel gazing.
- The narrator did fine job. He doesn’t have the best range of voices, but it’s okay with this kind of story.
I may try other Bill Crider books, but this one ends up in the meh pile.
