As the soon-to-retire sheriff, Shep Dudival, investigates the circumstances surrounding the murder, it comes to light that Buster and Mallomar's young wife were having a Cowboy Always Rings Twice affair. From there Price takes this familiar story plot and turns it on its head - folding a rococo cast of Vanadium's characters into a time line that begins with Vanadium's post-WWII labor strife and ends with the Kulturkampf of present day.
While it may all seem humorous and surreal at first blush, one gets the feeling by Improbable Fortunes' unguessable conclusion that Price has used the fictitious town of Vanadium - a place without a recognizable gas station, a decent restaurant, or a clean bathroom - as the Rosetta Stone for something larger.

Not a bad listen,
I sort of view this as Carl Hiaasen meets the west!
I think that this is a very good listen if you are looking for a tongue-in-cheek western. Not quite as entertaining as most of Carl's works, but better than some of his. The story line was okay, not great, but good enough. I thought that Jeffrey Price did an excellent job with the narration, great vocals for each character. This is my first book for both the author and the reader. Worth a credit ....not the best but far from the worst that I have heard. I will probably try others by this author, hoping for a bit better. If you are looking for a new author, give it a try!
