I thought this was a good mystery. It kept my interest and guessing to the end. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to more in this series

This two-pronged mystery begins with the Midnight Sheepherder rustling sheep in the dead of night. The scene is so vivid that I felt I was right there in the pasture with the thief and the thief's canine accomplice. The second mystery needing to be solved is, of course, the identity of the strangler. Both held my interest all the way to the end of this fast-paced book, and if I'd paid attention to one of my rules of armchair detecting, I would've figured out the rustling mystery. Oh well... some ...more

Arn and Ana MariaTHINK they are hunting for a sheep rustler. The sheep rustler just wants to steal sheep. Unfortunately, the rustler witnesses a murderer and then the game is on. It's always hard to review without spoilers but this is a neatly done pseudo-procedural in a great rural setting with an odd couple pair of investigators. Arn is retired law enforcement and Ana Maria is a tv reporters. They're sharp, though. I liked how the ins and outs of the community and the sheep business were used ...more

Definitely not a cosy mystery! More hard-boiled, and not something I normally choose. It looked good, however, and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It kept me reading and I thought I had guessed the killer, although not the sheep rustler, but I was wrong! Which is a good thing. This worked well as a standalone, but is the second in the series. There was only a little bit of wondering who the characters were and how they came together, but was easy to follow.

It's a series I'd li

A retired police detective turned investigator searches for a killer in a small ranch town. Unfortunately the small town gossip and ranching techniques bog down the story. I couldn't keep up with who was cheating on their spouse with who and I really didn't care about all the sheep talk. This book just couldn't keep my attention and I stopped reading half way through it.

This is my first book by this author and even this is the second book in the series I didn't had any difficulties reading it as a standalone. It was a perfect reading material for this cold days. It kept my attention and kept me turning pages and guessing what will happen until the end. I liked the characters and I am looking forward of reading the next instalments
