From bestselling author Patrick McManus comes the first mystery starring Blight County sheriff, Bo Tully which Kirkus Reviews called “one of the most entertaining debuts in years.”

Bo Tully, sheriff of Blight County, Idaho—and a fellow who dropped twenty pounds on Atkins—had been thinking about asking out Jan Whittle, his grade-school sweetheart. Problem is, he’s already promised to celebrate his dad’s seventy-fifth birthday with him. Thwarted romance proves to be the least of Bo’s problems, however, when a dead body turns up on Batim Scragg’s ranch. Forced to put on his sleuthing hat, Bo finds himself faced with a whole slew of possible suspects. And what quickly becomes apparent is that, while the sheriff’s investigative methods may not exactly be legal, they are, for better or worse, The Blight Way.

A bestselling author with more than two million books in print, the curmudgeonly wit Patrick F. McManus delivers a page-turning mystery filled with mirth and misadventure set in hook-and-bullet territory.

From AudioFile:

Idaho humorist Patrick McManus, author of more than a dozen bestselling books of comic essays on rural life, ventures into the green fields of mystery fiction with exemplary results. Humor is to be found, not as broad but still believable, in the dialogue between the characters. Sheriff Tully is the latest of a string of sheriffs named Tully, including his 75-year-old retired father, Pap. Reader Charles Leggett captures the voice of the exasperated, spry old man, as well as those of a half-dozen major characters and lots of minor ones. The plot concerns some city slickers murdered in a drug dispute, with locals strongly implicated. A great collaboration.
