No resemblance exists between Adkins's many fine books (The Wood Book) for young readers and his trumped-up mystery. The author seems bewitched by his invented heroine, Cookie Culler, but her charms may elude readers of this incredible story. Gun-totin', hard-drinkin', foul-mouthed Cookie owns and manages a ranch in Washington State when she's not shooting and skinning a bear or, more frequently, engaging in sex with her "Jewboy"longtime boarder and astro-physicist Nathan Lavensteinand other men about town. When Cookie's weakling brother Benjy comes home, she needs Nathan and her other pals to protect them both from hired killers. Smuggling a shipment of drugs for a group of dentists, Benjy's plane has crashed and the "toothies" (as he calls them) are after him. Tough Cookie and her allies unite in battles as sensationalized and explicit as the woman's repeated amours before the author writes finis to a novel that suggests a send-up of mystery-thrillers.
