Summary

Sean Hudson thought nothing of hopping a fence to dig illegally for Native American arrowheads, spear points, and other artifacts. Did his thieving, trespassing ways get him killed? How else to explain the small pickaxe that was found sunk deep into his skull? Blanco County game warden John Marlin has dealt with these kinds of looters before, so it's no surprise when the sheriff asks him to assist with the investigation. Marlin quickly learns that this case - like the soil at a dig site - has many layers.

The point of the matter

I enjoyed this book. This is book 10 in the series and by now you should know what to expect a windy twist take that with have you laughing out loud one moment and the rolling your eyes the next. The usual suspects all make an appearance which just adds to the adventure, especially finding out what Billy Don and Red are up to. The mystery was good and keeps you on your toes as it switches from character to character and feels like the police are investigating two case simultaneously. On to the next adventure. When a body is discover it doesn't take game warden John Marlin long to figure out the the teenage boy had been trespassing on somebody's land hunting for Native American arrowheads. What got him killed trespassing or a falling out between thevies? At the same time an aggressive salesman is making house calls selling bad meat. One lady ends up in hospital and Billy Don isn't happy about it. Marlin isn't to happy with him after the man won't take no from his wife. With a Facebook page set up tracking the salesman movements one of them is bound to catch up with him eventually. Can Marlin also track down the killer of the young boy and keep his wife safe?I With this book the author has gone back to the original narrator of the series and while I liked the narrator for the previous books I think Johnny Peppers does an excellent job and I will soon get use to him reading the rest of series. I was given this free view copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

seeing red

This story has me all kinds of mad!! So many people got away with crimes and cover ups, that it had me seeing red!!! Avery was an opportunist who moved from one man to the next and seemed to have little to no conscience. Her partner in crime needed a come uppance that didn't come. I'm just furious. On to the next book. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

Hope there are more

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved the whole series. Start at the beginning.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Billy Don is so deceptively 'dumb' , this showed him at his best.

Which character – as performed by Johnny Peppers – was your favorite?

Johnny Peppers was the best narrator of them all, it's easy to recognize the change in characters before they are identified. Robert King Ross has a great voice but I enjoyed Johnny's interpretation best.

Any additional comments?

Ben Rehder is a great author and his books translate into audio perfectly. I read them all in ebook format, and was thrilled when I found them all as audio.

A ride around the desert

Love seeing arrowheads laying on the ground., enjoy the rural visit, some of these characters remind me of my brother's cowboy friends and there is a mystery to solve. All these made for a fine story telling weekend. I rated it a 3 because I don't think many listeners will enjoy it the way I did.
