The Tamarack Murders (Sheriff Bo Tully Series #5) by Patrick F. McManus

Bo Tully, sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, has seen his share of small-town crime. Fact is, everyone in the area knows Tully, and knows his Blight Way of doing things. But when he and his deputy hike into the deep woods, tracking a suspected bank robber, little do they realize that they are about to witness a murder—and that, in turn, will lead the sheriff on an intricate trail, a series of twists and turns demanding his utmost attention and keenest crime-solving abilities.

Along the way, Tully has to deal with the likes of a shadowy local named Gridley Shanks, who seems to have a spider web of connections throughout town; two out-of-town elk hunters who don’t know much about elk hunting, but are tied to the murder; an elderly couple who end up dead while caring for a rundown mansion and property out of town; a sassy assistant named Daisy; an attractive, tough FBI agent named Angie, who suddenly finds herself involved in her first murder investigation; and a host of other characters. There’s also the case of missing loot, which no one can find—at least, until Tully puts his mind to it.

Will Tully get his man (or men) this time? Does the Blight Way ever fail? Read another page-turning mystery turned misadventure by New York Times bestselling author, Patrick F. McManus.

I've really enjoyed all McManus's previous Bo Tully mysteries - but The Tamarack Murders suffered from a total lack of editing and proof-reading. The story line wandered, descriptions and conversations were duplicated, almost word for word - and the choice of villain at the end strained credulity. The Tamarack Murders read like a first draft, not a final copy - and lacked the charm and humor of the author's previous books. +++ Janice Mink

Mcmanus books are read for the pure fun of it. This one just does nothave the entertainment value of the others in this series. Very short without a well developed ending.

Not what I expected from a McManus story, but better than average for the genre.

I have enjoyed all the Bo Tully mysteries. They are light reading and sometimes that is just what I need, entertainment with good humor but without so much suspense that my system is charged with adrenalin just about the time I want to get some sleep. The plots are interesting, but not in the "thriller" category that I need to avoid, and learning more about the characters moving through the series is enjoyable.
