know when I pick up a mystery novel by Brian M. Wiprud that I'm in for a good and amusing read. His newest book,
, is no exception.
arth Carson has added the role of appraising taxidermy collections for insurance purposes to his business of renting stuffed animals. As big-time collectors are being killed off – sent to that big hunting ground in the sky by their own kills - Garth realizes that the four men who have already died have a connection to him. A remote connection, but a connection nonetheless.
s he the next on the murderer's list? And why? This romp heads for the southwest and involves his long-time live-in girlfriend, his brother (or maybe not his brother), his nudist mother, his possible uncle, a shaman, a dog with designs on Garth's fingers, the FBI and Army Intelligence – and, oh yes, an obsolete army half-track.
id I leave anything out? Probably. It's a wonderful plot with many side trails, and characters you won't soon forget. All of this with the majesty of the terrain of the southwest.
is a good book.
