One Perfect Shot: A Posadas County Mystery | [Steven F. Havill]

One Perfect Shot: A Posadas County Mystery

When a county employee is found shot to death in sun-drenched daylight while sitting in his county road grader, Undersheriff Bill Gastner is faced with puzzling questions. The simplest explanation - that an errant bullet from a careless target shooter’s rifle blew out Larry Zipoli’s brains - is soon discarded as inconsistencies surface. The fatal bullet shows no rifling marks, and investigation shows that the shooter walked directly toward the road grader, in full view of the victim - who did nothing to defend himself.

Publisher's Summary

When a county employee is found shot to death in sun-drenched daylight while sitting in his county road grader, Undersheriff Bill Gastner is faced with puzzling questions. The simplest explanation - that an errant bullet from a careless target shooter’s rifle blew out Larry Zipoli’s brains - is soon discarded as inconsistencies surface. The fatal bullet shows no rifling marks, and investigation shows that the shooter walked directly toward the road grader, in full view of the victim - who did nothing to defend himself.

In addition to the demands of the investigation, Gastner learns that Sheriff Eduardo Salcido has hired a new deputy without discussing the matter with his undersheriff and that the new hire is destined to be the first female road-patrol deputy in the history of Posadas County.

Thus begins Gastner’s relationship with Estelle Reyes, whose shrewd observations shed important light on a crime that reveals all kinds of skeletons lurking in Posadas County closets.

Steven F. Havill is the author of more than twenty novels set in the American West. He taught in secondary schools for twenty-five years and recently earned an associate of applied science degree in gunsmithing. He lives with his wife, Kathleen, in New Mexico.

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never under estimate girls.

    Have read several books by this author and have loved them all. Fast moving entertaining and a delight. Was looking forward to listening and loved every minute.

    "SLOOOOOOW!!!"
    What disappointed you about One Perfect Shot?

    I kept waiting for something to break apart from a mundane investigation but that's all it was, mundane


    Would you ever listen to anything by Steven F. Havill again?

    No


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to many audio books read by Ray Porter all of them wonderfully performed including this one. He was the only shinning moment of this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The proper Narrator was selected.

    "Enjoyable even if a little slow"

    This was a good book even though it bogged down with all the intricate gun info. I like the characters and especially Sheriff Gastner - makes me wish he would take care of himself.
