I love the Gastner books with Rusty reading them. But I do not like Estelle and her perfect ways and her perfect family. And her narrators seem to make the stories longer (and more boring). Even the deputies are getting boring and perfect. I hope the author writes a Bill Gastner story from back when he was sheriff or under-sheriff; then bring back Rusty as narrator.
I have enjoyed all of the Bill Gastner and Posades County Mysteries but this latest in the series by Steven F Havill was a dull shadow of the previous books. All the normal characters were there but there was nothing compelling about the mystery, the interaction between the characters, the relationships that normally bring so much richness to the story… I was bored and continually waiting for something to happen to bring the story to life. I hate to write a negative review about a book in a series I have found so entertaining and rewarding. I am currently sick and perhaps that colored my perceptions of the story.
