Caught on horseback in a raging mountain thunderstorm, Steve Watts found shelter, a comfortable spot to rest and began contemplating the latter stages of his remarkable career. A retired cop and state investigator, with stints in the Army and as a fisherman in Alaska, Steve ended his working life as the owner of a private detective agency in Idaho Falls. “Lemhi Overhang” details some of Steve’s adventures as owner and operator of the Idaho Protective Specialist Company: on the road to Arizona to investigate a murder-suicide for an old friend; combating government bureaucracy run amok; and interacting with a fascinating cast of characters in the tiny cowboy town, Leadore, where he and his wife built a lodge and kept horses. Along the way, Steve learned a little something about himself, a rugged individualist so capable of dealing with what he called the “physical world,” he sought greater understanding of his spiritual side. “Lemhi Overhang” offers readers some unique insights: into the world of a private detective who finds himself involved in a host of interesting and unusual cases; into the workings of a small, mountain community whose citizens sometimes seem as though they walked straight out of a B. Traven novel; and into the mind of a remarkable man as he contemplated aging and the inevitable. “The Lemhi Overhang is a quick and very easy read, and so engrossing that I stopped reading it only three times—twice because I was sleepy, and the last time because the story ended!” – Dianne Meyer, author, Bellingham, Washington “All in all, a fascinating read.” – Debu Majumdar, author, Idaho Falls, Idaho

About the Author:

Born in San Francisco in 1932, Steve Watts spent a large part of his youth in Texas on a ranch and later, in Alaska as a fisherman. Idaho Falls was his home since 1957. He had been a police officer, a detective, criminal investigator and polygraph specialist. Throughout his long and distinguished career, Steve's compassion for the victims of crime and his pursuit of justice affected and changed the lives of many people from every walk of life. He was a painter, builder, inventor, author and story teller. He was also a columnist for the Post Register newspaper. His first book, "Better an Honest Scoundrel: Chronicles of a Western Lawman," was published in 2003. "Lemhi Overhang," his second book, tells fictionalized stories based on his experiences. He passed away on May 9, 2015.
