After a young woman and a bull are found dead in a dark pasture, Blanco County game warden John Marlin is asked to assist with the investigation. Was it a case of rustling gone wrong? Or maybe a prank turned deadly? Marlin hopes the woman's boyfriend can shed some light on the situation, but he's nowhere to be found. Is he on the run or did the woman's violent brother take matters into his own hands? Marlin and a special investigator - an old flame from his college days - join forces to see past the bull and discover the truth.

Got hooked on series when Jonathan Davis was the reader. The current reader, RK Ross, just does accents. Davis brought characters to life. This book another fun story from Rehder. All the fun and nuance ruined and lost by the reader.
In print yes not audible
Any Rehder book. Sharp funny.
He makes the law enforcement officers sound slow and stupid
Enjoyed the return of familiar and fun characters. Can never guess where these books are going.
Narrator did a fantastic job.
Book kept me occupied while working out. Made my workout time fly by!
Go Print... Ben Rehder always offers up a fun read with great characters and Bum Steer is no exception. However narrator Ross makes the characters sound inane and stupid.
The Blanco County series is always a trip home for me...
Blanco Texas is a hour from Austin but narrator Ross makes these folks sound like silly hillbillies. The character voices sound like parodies of Captain Kirk, Bob Dylan and southeastern hillbillies. The females especially sound absurd with breathy voices and extended vowel pronunciations that no one from Texas uses.. Bring on a narrator that "talks Texan"
