Publisher's Summary

Coyote Crossing is a dusty little sh*thole town in western Oklahoma. A sleepy little pit stop for truckers, not a lot going on. So a dead body in the middle of the street at midnight is quite an event. The chief of police wants all hands on deck, so he calls Toby Sawyer to come babysit the body.

Toby doesn’t have a lot going for him. Twenty-five, a couple of years of junior college, married to a girl he got pregnant, and living in a trailer on the edge of town. He’s working part time for the police department, hoping the budget comes through and they can put him on full time, so he can get health benefits. His wife is a waitress at a little crap diner near the railroad tracks. When he gets the call about the dead body, he pins his tin star to his Weezer t-shirt, slips into a pair of sweatpants and grabs his revolver.

Victor Gischler is the author of five novels, including Gun Monkeys, Shotgun Opera, and Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse.

    "A sleeper"

    Never heard of the author or the book, but a friend suggested it. Glad he did, hated to see (hear) this story come to a end. Loved it.

    I like oaters, but then I like good books of any genre. I have well over two thousand titles in my library and expect many more.

    Story
    "Depity Dog or Beaky Buzzard"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is a hoot! First our hero could not hold a debate with the dumbest of rednecks. He sounds a little like Beaky Buzzard but not as smart. That said, he is virule, and pretty brave although he doesn't know it. As he gets deeper and deeper into the mystery he is attacked, gets in fistfights, gunfights, and no matter how how outnumbered and hopeless his situation, he comes through. I was hooked on the book as soon as I got over the dumb yokel narration. The book just kept getting better with enough mystery and danger to make it somewhat of a page turner. I have downloaded so many stinkers lately, this is a book to refresh your interest in Audio books.

    Story
    "Laconic Narration Yields Slam, Bang Action"
    Any additional comments?

    Evan Greenberg's laconic narration and the fuzzy-headed thinking of the title character quickly gives way to slam-bang action that keeps the reader on the knife-edge of suspense. Through it all, The Deputy's stubborn goodness engages and sustains one. This book is well worth the listen.
