The eagerly awaited third volume in Harrison's wildly acclaimed mystery series, set in the off-the-wall town of Blue Deer, Montana. Just as Sheriff Jules Clement comes up for reelection, a skeleton is found on a river island owned by Jules' uncle--a convicted murderer--and an elderly rancher burns to death in his car, an apparent suicide.

Review:

It's not easy being the sheriff in a town like Blue Deer, Montana, especially if you were born and raised there. With a population of only 5,000 souls, there aren't a whole lot of suspects to go around when a crime wave hits town. This is the problem facing Jules Clement, the hero of Jamie Harrison's novel An Unfortunate Prairie Occurrence. A murder, a series of rapes, and the discovery of an old skeleton down by the river put Clement in the peculiar position of having to investigate friends, family, and neighbors in order to solve the crimes. Along with the mystery, Harrison delivers a charming, quirky universe populated by memorable characters and presided over by a sheriff with a heart as big as Montana.

From the Publisher:

"Jamie Harrison is a wonderfully accomplished writer...Blue Deer remains a place where all good readers can go to grin." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"Harrison takes her time resolving these criminal matters, allowing us to linger in Blue Deer long enough to learn its history, drink in the scenery and laugh at the kinks and quirks of its idiosyncratic residents. No wonder the world-weary Jules came running back home the first chance he got--the place is heaven." --The New York Times Book Review

"The third and best of Jamie Harrison's laconic Montana mystery novels." --Time magazine
