Bo Tully is the sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, where law enforcement is usually pretty mundane: tracking down truants running away from school, picking up country boys who’ve had a few too many beers. But Tully gets a little more than the country norm when an ex-con calls with the startling news that there’s a corpse draped across one of his fences. Tully needed a birthday present for his Pap (the retired sheriff) anyway, so the two of them head out to investigate the murder. In a tone that’s wise-cracking one minute and the next, well, still wise-cracking, Tully and Pap use their wiles to figure out what’s happening in this little and suddenly not-so-dull town.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Everybody should read Patrick McManus.” New York Times Book Review, praise for the author
“A good-natured comic mystery…[McManus] peoples his shaggy plot with a variety of vivid, quirky characters…It’s good, goofy fun.” Seattle Times
“Prolific, popular outdoorsman and humorist McManus departs from his trademark shaggy-dog stories with this novel set in current-day Idaho, the first in a new mystery series starring Blight County sheriff Bo Tully…On the seventy-fifth birthday of his father…a dead body turns up at the ranch of a family of ex-cons. Bo decides a murder investigation would be the perfect birthday present for Pap…Behind his hayseed cop exterior, Bo is smart, sneaky and relentless. Add lots of quirky suspects, crisscrossing motives and artery-clogging meals at Dave’s House of Fry, and McManus delivers a brisk, hilarious small town cop mystery.” Publishers Weekly
“One of the most entertaining mystery debuts in years.” Kirkus Reviews
