Publisher's Summary

When the dullest man in town goes missing, and Professor Peter Shandy must figure out where to look

Although he towers over his neighbors, Jim Feldster is otherwise unremarkable, except for his mastery of cow milking and his membership in every lodge, rotary club, and brotherhood that Balaclava County has to offer. And anyone who’s met his wife, Mirelle, a vicious gossip with a hysterical streak, can understand why he never misses a meeting. But one night their neighbors, the sleuthing academics Peter and Helen Shandy, wake at 2:47 a.m. to the sound of Mirelle screaming.

Jim hasn’t come home, and she will lose her mind if he isn’t found quickly. None of Jim’s lodge brothers know where to find him, and Peter’s investigation turns up few clues. But when a mystery author comes to town and Mirelle is found murdered, Peter begins to wonder if the master milker is less wholesome than he appears.

Reader needs to learn English

I have noticed oddities with this reader since starting the series but there were several mispronunciations in this one so bad that I had to go look at the text to see what was being said.

Narration Ruins An Otherwise Great Story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The narration irritated me to no end, but I love MacLeod's writing. I'd rather have read it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John McLain?

A woman. Please.
