Not often does one get to read a mystery that is fun, but also a page turner. Mr. Crider has a sense of humor that makes all of his Truman Smith books a really good time. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a dash of humor with their mysteries.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.
