Entertaining Who-Done-It Murder Mystery

I'm not typically a fan of westerns, but I very much enjoyed listening to this western murder mystery. The plot was engaging, the characters were interesting, and the narration was spot on.

I was also pleased to find that the content, while a little salty at times, would fall safely within a pg-13 rating (this is always a nice bonus since I have young children who love to play with my phone).

A free copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an objective review.

My favorite series.

Any additional comments?

This is book 4 in the series and was the first one I was given the opportunity to listen to. The story is captivating with just the right amount of detail to engage you. Steve Dancy is one of those characters that you want to switch places with, taking on challenges with just the right tools and smarts. After I listened to this I quickly bought the first 3 books and I am excited for Book 5 and 6 which I have not yet read.
