Publisher's Summary

Life in rural Blanco County, Texas, isn't what most folks would call exciting - and that suits game warden John Marlin just fine. He's happy to spend his days and nights protecting the local wildlife from poachers. But when the tequila-slamming, skirt-chasing treasurer of the local Rotary Club goes missing and his vehicle is found in the river the day after a flood, Marlin finds himself in charge of the search efforts.
At nearly the same time, a nearby house explodes in a shower of drug paraphernalia, and an exotic car turns up stolen from the missing man's barn. Marlin and Sheriff Bobby Garza are soon overwhelmed, trying to figure out how everything connects together. It isn't long before events begin to spiral out of control.
Edgar Award-nominated author Ben Rehder keeps the plot moving and the laughs coming in another spectacularly funny crime novel straight out of the zaniest imagination in Texas.

ho hum... Sorry i bought it.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book and narration was very below my interest and quality. I kept falling asleep during it, and it took me several days to get through. The voice inflections were interesting, but the southern accent (Texas) with overkill pronunciation of each word almost impeccable. The book context was boring and hard to follow due to jumping around.

I hope some enjoy this book, but my opinion is if there is a sample button, do the sample listening, don't buy first ... I wasn't aware on many there is a sample button.

What could Ben Rehder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I wouldn't have bothered writing this. I think the writer has talent, but this did not hold my interest. I will not be listening again.

How could the performance have been better?

I think the Texas twang was a bit overkill. He was very precise with wording, but.....

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Greatly disappointed. Definitely not going to revisit this book.

Any additional comments?

Be prepared.
