His writing and plots are getting more interesting and look forward to his next book
The story begins when a small herd of buffalo are driven over a cliff to their death along with the corpse of a young Indian man. Once again painter, river guide and sometimes private detective Sean Stranahan is called in to help sheriff Martha Ettinger solve the mystery. The story is really muttered up and there is really not much of a mystery to be solved.
There is some interesting information about the plight of introducing buffalo back into the wild. The problem is that it seems like the authors goal was to share his opinions about the management of the buffalo in West Yellowstone and the confusion over what government agencies and the Indian reservation should be the overseer of the project while the plot just muddles along.
I also found the off and on again relationship between Sean and Martha becoming tiresome after four books. Finally there is a mermaid in the story and this little tidbit was just absolutely absurd and added nothing to the story. I will read the next book in the series to see if the author can capture some of the magic of the first three books but if not Sean can just go fishing without me!
Although they write in different genres, this book is as good as anything John Sandford has written, and I have no higher praise to give.
This was such a great book. What a great story and the character development was first rate so that I got very involved with the plot twists and the people in it.
I have always had a great respect for the animals in Yellowstone, but now Mr. McCafferty has educated me more about the politics surrounding the buffalo herds.
