STORY - This second book is much more interesting and faster-paced than the first book. It has the same beautiful imagery of the frozen Wyoming wilderness, the same touches of Indian culture and most of the same characters. Some listeners might be offended by Vick, the female deputy with the foul mouth, but I love her. She is so bold and predictable that she cracks me up! This story might easily be rated a five, but for some reason it was just not exactly up my alley enough for me to love it so I have given it a four.
NARRATOR - Guidall does a PERFECT Wyoming sheriff character. His voice is deep, coarse and he talks somewhat slowly like you might expect from a laid-back small town sheriff. He does Indian voices and accents well, too. The only reason I can't give him a five is because of his women. They sound way too masculine.
BOTTOM LINE - I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, but be aware that this takes place in the wilderness of Wyoming. It is not a high-tech crime, and it is not high-tech crime solving.

On the face of it, the book didn't seem like my kind of mystery. Sherrif in Wyoming? Sounded a bit like a Tony Hillerman book. Tony Hillerman's books are good, don't get me wrong, but this book is really special. The characters are human and very real, not stereotypes, the plot unfolds naturally, the dialog is right on. Nice, dry humor (just my style). And there is a real, plausible mystery at the heart of the story. George Guidall, the narrator, reads everything with just the right touch of irony. I can't recommend this book enough.
