The Prairie Chicken Kill


This Review:★★★★★

Average Rating: 5 ★★★★★

The Truman Smith Mysteries continue to thrill and amuse with this story: The Prairie Chicken Kill.
As usual with Bill’s tales of Tru’ – our Galveston dwelling, wisecracking cynic with a touch of Noir to his musings – what begins as a simple hunt for the shooter of an endangered avian turns into a multiple murder investigation, replete with family issues, grudges, local colour and plenty of well-meaning charm that disguises a darker side to society.

With the help of Red, the father-in-law of an old flame, and the less than helpful dealings with local Police, Truman must find out whodunit and uncover the shady goings on in Picketville, without losing a limb to some hired thugs who are determined to put an end to his meddling.

Written with a relaxed style and plenty of wry humour, the story nonetheless thrills and entertains, leaving you hungry for more.
