Listened to the fourth book and enjoyed it so much had to start at the beginning. If you like Longmire or Joe Pickett you'll like this. Good character..Show More », tough talking female , and politically incorrect friend. The best part is the narrator. So good you don't notice him. His voices are done well and are not irritating.
Like most of my favorite authors, I stumbled upon Keith McCafferty. A gold nugget amongst a lot of gravel, his Sean Stranahan series has been mesmeriz..Show More »ing so far. Three down in four days- what does that say about his writing, and characters? Plus, Rick Holmes does a superb job of narrating such a diverse cast of characters. These are the narration gigs that make you wonder how on earth the job can be done so flawlessly. I'm hooked, pun entirely intended & believe most anyone who gives the first book a read will be, too. As for my subject line, you'll have to read or listen to understand. Tight lines!
Keith McCafferty has quickly become one of my new favorite authors. He's like the metaphorical love child that would materialize if Richard Russo, Adr..Show More »ian McKinty & Louis L Amour could merge. But he is distinctly his own man, and an excellent writer.
Can't believe how attached I've become to Sean, Martha and Sam, especially, but also Harold, Katie, Walt & the docs. Even when events break your heart. Sad to be starting the final book (so far) of the series...These are "can't- put- downers".
Additional props must be given to Rick Holmes, who does an amazing job with all characters. And to the publisher for sticking with a great narrator throughout the series.
For the most part, I just star review. But Keith McCafferty has pulled me in so thoroughly, I feel an obligation to take a moment to give thanks.

Harold. Katy. And of course, Sean. Kemosabe. And all the ancillary characters, too. It's strange to be so completely enveloped by people who are fictional, the product of McCafferty's mind. I would sincerely love to spend a day on a river with him, sharing the sport/peace/art that is fly fishing. Also, I can't say enough about the narration talent of Rick Holmes- amazing.
I came to the party late, and so was able to devour all five novels at once (6 days- might be my record). I'm sad it'll mean waiting for the next one, and I hope there will be many more. In the meantime, I've started seriously researching the trip to Montana I've always dreamt of.
