Spider Collins. I found the protagonist, Bud, to be a lovable character who admitted his faults and did not blame others when he came to grief in a stakeout. He's been burned with his wife, and perhaps his last job, and is hoping for a quiet life in the sticks. Unfortunately I haven't been to Oregon so I needed it painted a little bit more. However, there is plenty of action and love shown to a dog so it's a feel-good story, too. A good mystery with a bit of romance thrown in.

Spider Silk

A very well written story. The characters are well developed and easy to relate with. The story is set in a beautiful area of America. An area I would love to visit someday. A mystery with many twists and turns, it kept me wondering until the end. I would recommend it to all lovers of a good mystery and beautiful locations. There is also good clean romance and humor. Enjoy.

Far exceeded my expectations. Tempted to award 5-stars for holding my attention so firmly. Started and finished it in a few hours and look forward with pleasure to reading next in series. Would like to see it available in libraries.

Collins clearly depicted a little known area of Oregon using a cast created from realistic characters. I rate Collins up with my favorite authors of crime fiction. As a bonus, some of the facts and settings were pleasantly new to me. For instance, a quote from page 56

Decent mystery but the real draw is that it is set in my home area of Lakeview, Oregon.
