I loved how easily the author kindled investment in the lives and happenings of these fictional characters. Although it started off a tiny bit slow for me, it felt like one minute I was at 25% and then I looked again and it was 86%. The storyline seriously ramped up at that point. Enough that I actually uttered aloud "WHOA!" - totally forgetting where I was and that no-one else knew what all the excitement was about. Once that happened it was pretty much impossible to put down.
Even though this is the second in the series, I believe it can be read as a stand-alone. I didn't read the first one and didn't find I was lost at all. That said, I will be adding the first one in the series to my To-Be-Read list/mountain and following the author's future work.
Quirky and masterfully constructed characters leading you through the book's twists and turns is as enjoyable as the story itself. I can just see Sam Elliot as the sheriff...Loved the book; expect I'll be scouting more Jefferson Morgan mysteries as they roll off the presses-- and I hope there are many more...Bravo!
Morgan has escaped from Chicago following the death of his son to Winchester, Wyoming to run the local newspaper. He's inquisitive and pokes his nose into everything. Winchester is populated with quirky characters like rancher Ray, "who believed state road signs bore secret codes to tell New World Order tank squadrons who owned guns. He believed jet contrails in the sky were secret government plots to control population and inoculate Americans against their wills with anthrax and other strange diseases. He believed, because he'd once heard it on Art Bell's late-night radio talk show, that Thomas Pynchon and J.D. Salinger were the same person, although he'd never read either." And who put cowboy boots on the top of his fence posts, but only because they looked good.
The book has some nice similes and metaphors. How's this for the inverse of what we normally envision of a Wyoming sunset: "The blood-smeared western sky spilled along the brink of the horizon, seeping slowly beneath the earth where it peeled back at the edges. A summer sunset in Wyoming was silently violent, a death. . . . The bleeding sky drained to corpse blue, then decomposed to black while Morgan slept." Sets the tone for what is to follow.
I'll skip the plot summary in order to avoid spoilers. You'll enjoy it.
