    Veterinarian Austin McKenzie has met plenty of snakes - and none meaner than turkey farmer Lewis O'Leary. So it's no surprise when O'Leary's dead body is found in a dumpster. Circumstantial evidence points to a turkey feed salesman, but the doc has a feeling the guy was framed.

    Any additional comments?

    My family generally enjoyed this book nearly as much as the first. The characters were consistent with the previous book, and just as enjoyable. The mystery was as intricate and well-plotted as the "Roasted Onion", right up until the end. We actually went back and listened to the last chapter again, assuming we must have missed something. If so, we missed it again the second time. We just had 3 things which confused us. 1st, they explained how the river water got only onto the seat of the body's pants just fine; except that was a two-part process, and they didn't explain how the body didn't get totally soaked during the second half. 2nd, before Dr McK figured it out, there were 3 people with no alibi. However, later in the chapter he mused in passing that one of them couldn't have done it, because their alibi was a person who had no reason to lie for them. Huh? Lastly, we all agreed that the real killer had means and oppurtunity, but somewhere or other, we missed the motive; the guy just being a nasty-piece-of-work isn't enough. Possibly there was a motive listed early on, but it wasn't restated at the end, so none of us remembered it.These were not show-stoppers; we still enjoyed the story, and will listen to the next in the series. But after talking it over after the second listen, we decided that Ms. Bishop must not have been able to have a "logical thread copy editor" read the final version, and didn't realize that she didn't get a couple of plot points out of her head and onto the paper. But as I said, we still enjoyed the story and will listen to the next, but this one will probably not go into our "listen again in the future" file.
