The Royal Wulff Murders
by Keith McCafferty
On the surface, fly-fishing does not appear to be a murderous sport. But combine it with a plot to spread whirling disease in Montana trout streams for profit and the temptation is too great. I like the variety of characters. They range from wealthy businessmen who own summer homes in the area to vacationers to locals (both native and newcomers). There was too much fly-fishing detail for my taste and not enough of Sheriff Martha Ettinger, who wrestles with the pitfalls that a job in law enforcement puts in the path of a woman. McCafferty is an editor of Field and Stream magazine. This is his first novel. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [ See Donna's reviewer profile | See Donna's reviews on BookGuide ] [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of C.J.
