The Prairie Chicken Kill (A Truman Smith Mystery) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
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.
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.
