About this title

Synopsis:

Ex-sheriff Hack Bohannon's beat is the rugged central California coast, where cattle graze the foothills between crashing surf and soaring cliffs. Bohannon's crew of grizzled rodeo riders, a young student-priest, and an attractive woman discover that death can be as unpredictable as the landscape.

From Publishers Weekly:

In five new short stories, Hansen is in top form, delighting readers with surprising, often risk-taking, fiction. This will be no surprise to followers of the acclaimed Dave Brandstetter series (Brandstetter was one of the first gay PI heroes), which ended last year with A Country of Old Men . Three of the stories feature Hack Bohannon, a rugged horse rancher on the California coast who sleuths on the side. In "The Olcott Nostrum" Hack and colorful cohorts help an old woman unearth the mystery of her inherited farmhouse and find the formula for the title's legendary cure-all. Throughout, Bohannon's wife Linda drifts in and out of a catatonic state brought on by a kidnapping and rape, although her plight is apparently forgotten in the second story, "The Owl in the Oak." The pick of the fivesome is "Molly's Aim." Molly, a motel chambermaid in her small hometown, waits for years for the return of Carl, the high school hero she loved, who cheated her of her share of the loot from a murder/robbery. Also arriving in town is Hugh; he loved Carl too and was also betrayed. The stars collide in this taut masterpiece of short crime fiction.
