Publisher's Summary

Bo Tully is the sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, where law enforcement is usually pretty mundane: tracking down truants running away from school, picking up country boys who've had a few too many beers. But Tully gets a little more than the country norm when an ex-con calls with the startling news that there's a corpse draped across one of his fences. Tully needed a birthday present for his Pap (the retired sheriff) anyway, so the two of them head out to investigate the murder. In a tone that's one minute wise-cracking and the next...well, still wise-cracking...Tully and Pap use their wiles to figure out what's happening in this little and not-so-dull town.

WHAT A TREAT

For anyone who has ever read McManus' previous books of delightful essays or his shaggy dog stories you will be delighted and for mystery readers you should be happy also, plot is well done, characters are great, and pace is perfect. am really looking forward to many more of this series.

A rare delight

The Blight Way is that rare delight, a humorous mystery that is both laugh-out-loud funny and at the same time, a fair whodunnit. The narrator is absolutely superb at characterizing each and every role -- a genuine talent whom I hope we will hear much more from. Highly recommended.
