Summary

When a Blanco County hog hunter goes missing after a fight with his girlfriend, it's not a laughing matter - even when one of today's hottest blue-collar comedians is a suspect.

Game warden John Marlin joins forces with the sheriff's department once again to root through the clues and discover the truth.

Meanwhile, two of the county's most notorious poachers - Red O'Brien and Billy Don Craddock - decide to launch an investigation of their own, and the cops are not amused.

Enjoyable listen

I am a huge fan of this series, and the narrator. It amazes me that this can be a light hearted listen despite the grisley details!

Last Laugh

There are always so many twists and turns for these books in this series and this one is not any different. The characters are great.... sometimes stupid but always funny and the way so many things can all wrap up at the same time always gives me a fun listen.

Last laugh

Narrator: Johnny Peppers
Red is convinced that he is yet again a suspect in a murder so in true Red fashion sets out to prove his innocence with his long suffering but trusted friend Billy Don.
Saddle up for this well constructed tale with twists and turns, a shootout and an abundance of sarcasm.
I never get bored with this series there’s plenty of amusement and the characters are terrific.
The narrator does a great job

Murder is no laughing matter

This is book eleven in the Blanco county series and it is still as good as the first. This is because I like the characters and I enjoy listening to the trouble they get into especially Red O'Brien and Billy Don Craddock, who should be have been arrested long ago, even so you can't help but like them. The mystery was interesting and contained plenty of suspects to keep you guessing. The only thing I didn't like was the comedian, he wasn't funny just insulting and rude but then again maybe it is an American thing and I just didn't get the jokes. Other than that it was fun.
A big Hunter goes missing after an argument with his girlfriend. The only clue found is a puddle of blood on the side of the road. Was it an accident or something a bit more premeditated? Game warden John Marlin is once again called in to help investigate. The man had, had a number of run ins with people in the last couple of days, including trying to sue Red O'Brien for a back injury while building the poachers free house. This causes Red and Billy Don to run there own investigation because they can't trust the cops when they say he isn't really a suspect. Who will get to the bottom of the disappearance? And will they find him alive or dead? With a famous face in the county who isn't returning there calls the investigation may prove to be Marlins most difficult case yet.
He narrator was okay but he does have quite a deep gruff voice which tends to make some of the characters sound the same.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I did not like the reader

Others have been much better. He was flat and unfunny. No sense of timing I hope the producers change voices. A little more Texan

Like rabid rabbits

Now Red gets his turn at a woman friend with benefits and Billy Don is single and ready to mingle. I love the mysteries, but many of these characters act like frat boys. They seem to think sex is interchangeable with any thing or commodity. Mandy and Tino thoroughly ticked me off. Between all their lies and loose loose to non-existent morales. I'm gaging. Wth?? And the final lie, that biotch admitted to!!! Sadly, the man is thinking without his brain. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

Another enjoyable romp through Blanco County

A great book to listen to between more serious tomes. The Blanco County series is kind of a west Texas version of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. An easy, quick listen that is light but satisfying.
