Solve another puzzler with Sheriff Bill Gastner.

If you like your mysteries fast paced then this isn't the book for you. If you like your mysteries with a little storytelling thrown in and descriptions of the scenery and people living in a small town in New Mexico then you'll enjoy this book. This is the first book I've listened to in this series so I can't say how this one compares to the rest of the series but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Gastner is now retired and a cattle inspector handing out permits so the ranchers can move their cattle. The first mystery is what happened to Pat. He had moved the cattle to another pasture but next thing you know the cattle are loose being herded down the road by a dog. The second mystery is a good friend of Gastner's is found dead so the question is was it natural or did he have help. Along the way of Gastner helping the police solve these two mysteries you get to meet some members of the community and learn about life in a small town. If you've ever listened to the Longmire books this one is sort of in the same vein. I plan on listening to the series from the beginning and learn more about the people who live in Posadas County.
