Picked this out at the same time I got Lone Creek. McMahon is a very good writer. I thought this book lacked the depth of plot detail and some stretches of believability that made Lone Creek overshadow it. None-the-less, I really enjoyed the read.

After I read Lone Creek, I tried several other Nneil McMahon books. This was a good, fun read as well. I read it in a day.
I really like this charater, Hugh Davoren, that McMahon has developed. This book is number two for the character. It is a good solid mystery. Hugh is a carpenter along with his friend Madbird in Montana. A woman from his past wants him to investigate the murder of her stepmother and her boyfriend. She feels her father was set up for the fall. With the help of Madbird and the local sheriff, Hugh starts peeling back the layers and soon finds himself fighting for his life in the mountains of Montan...more

I thought this book was pretty good. I liked the close friendship between the 3 characters, Hugh, Madbird and Renee. Also, the feel of Montana was nice to read about. I would definitely read another book by Neil McMahon. I would recommend this to friends.
Good but not as good as what I'm used to from McMahon. Dead Silver just never developed the speed and was predictable for those who read anything. You could guess the bad guys were and you never doubted yourself.
This is the second book featuring these characters. McMahon is a writer I greatly enjoy as are his characters. This was a very good read.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were rich and I enjoyed the modern day western setting.

Nice change from San Francisco doc to Montana ranch hand. Prefer these his previous books.
