When deputy sheriff turned private investigator Spider Latham is sent to help the Red Pueblo Museum, he doesn't suspect it'll cause a rift between his wife, Laurie, and himself.
Museum Director Martin Taylor is desperate, and his son Matt is angry. Some unknown person is bent on destroying the museum financially and is about to succeed. Things turn violent. It ends with someone's skull bashed in with an Anasazi ax, and everyone has a motive for the murder.
Can Spider untangle the web of secrecy and lies surrounding the museum before the Taylors lose it all? And, in the process, can he save his own marriage?

Spider. I'm new to his Character. Very good. A laid back, loving husband who is very likeable.
I've not listened to Tanya's narration before but its very good. The narrator can make or break even the most well written books and Tanya certainly helps to make this excellent book into one which you can't stop listening too and enjoy thoroughly from start to finish.
Spider Latham. Untangle the mystery
This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.
I am sure the story is better than what I've rated it but the narrator's "performance" was flat, dead, boring. Just listening to the opening dedication put me off. Sound quality not good either.
I was gifted this lovely book with the promise of a honest review. I loved this book and the narrator did a wonderful job too. This is the first Spider book for me and I will be checking out more b this author.
"Spider Latham is Back! And He's Better than Ever!"
I loved listening to Trouble at the Red Pueblo because Liz Adair has such a great talent of painting a picture with her very descriptive words. The writing is excellent and I didn't want to stop listening. It was Riveting.
It's fun to have the story take place in locations that I have been in Southern Utah, Arizona and Nevada.
It's a great addition to the rest of the Spider Latham books.
Tanya Mills did a superb job of narrating the story. Her performance made this truly a first class product.
Spider Latham's web of relationships solves the case.
I recommend this audio book to anybody who likes mysteries. It's a fun story.

This was the third work I've read by Adair. I'm not normally a mystery person, but I find her storytelling and characters so fun, I've changed my mind if she's the author. Spider is such a fun (and flawed) guy, and I love his relationship with his wife. I'm going to have to go back and read the Christmas novella again now that I know Amy better. And the first three books. I hope they're in audiobook.
It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a book and the narration at the same time. Couldn't wait for some quiet time to listen!
"great story but... hard to listen to the narrator"
almost bypassed the book because the narrator was so slow and sad and lispy. but a very good story.
This was the first of Liz Adair's books I've read. I enjoyed the book, and will read more of her work. I liked her style and content. Pleasantly, I didn't have to skip anything profane in the entire book. THANKS Liz!!!
Narrator sounded like she was quietly read a book rather than telling a story. No emotion. Additionally the audible copy had "lisping" sounds either from the narrator or technical problems. The combination made it impossible to continue through the book.
"I couldn't stand the narration"
After the acknowledgements, I couldn't get past the first minute. The narrator was too dry and soft-spoken. Just couldn't stay with it.
Liked the characters, especially the two main protagonists. The bad guy definitely needed killin' so the end was just. I will seek out more by this author.
