This second book in the Yooper Mystery series features the unpredictable, unflappable, and unstoppable amateur sleuth Gertie Johnson.
On opening day of bear hunting season in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a game warden is murdered right under Little Donny's tree stand. Little Donny disappears into the backwoods, forcing sixty-six year old gertie to use her "unique" investigative techniques to find her favorite grandson. Gertie's search is hampered by her pin-curled bodyguard Kitty, her man-hungry friend Cora Mae who's hot for the guy Gertie secretly admires, and Grandma Johnson–who should be mushing peas between her new false teeth in the Escanaba Nursing Home instead of setting up camp at Gertie's place. What really gets Gertie's goat is her son Blaze, the local sheriff, who's more interested in arresting his mom for driving without a license than finding Little Donny or catching the killer.
