Publisher's Summary

In the wake of Fourth of July fireworks in Montana's Madison Valley, Hyalite County sheriff Martha Ettinger and Deputy Sheriff Harold Little Feather investigate a horrific scene at the Palisades cliffs, where a herd of bison have fallen to their deaths. Victims of blind panic caused by the pyrotechnics, or a ritualistic hunting practice dating back thousands of years? The person who would know is beyond asking, an Indian man found dead among the bison, his leg pierced by an arrow.

Farther up the valley, fly fisherman, painter, and sometime private detective Sean Stranahan has been hired by the beautiful Ida Evening Star, a Chippewa Cree woman who moonlights as a mermaid at the Trout Tails Bar & Grill, to find her old flame, John Running Boy. The cases seem unrelated - until Sean's search leads him right to the brink of the buffalo jump.

With unforgettable characters and written with his signature grace and wry humor, Buffalo Jump Blues weaves a gripping tale of murder, wildlife politics, and lost love.

    "Tip top"

    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. Rarely have I been so invested in characters. I could throttle Martha, while at the same time I just want to wrap her in a bear hug and learn from her. Sam. I know Sam. Several Sams! 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.

    Tight lines. And Martha- just tell him!

    "Surprisingly good"

    I have listened to the entire Sean Stranahan series and thoroughly enjoyed it. Keith McCafferty has written an original series unlike any other. Rick Holmes does a great job of bringing the characters to life.

    "Another Good Story"

    I enjoyed this story and loved the way the author brought information on Native Americans and the Buffaloes issues to readers attention.

    "Maybe the best Stranahan yet"

    I love this entire series and this is maybe the best one yet! Highly recommended, but start with the first book, The Royal Wulff Murders, and work your way through the entire series up through this latest one. Captivating!

    "Buffaloes and mermaids"

    His is a good not great story about buffaloes, Indians, yellowstone national park, fishing, friendship, a quest for love, and ruthless murder.
    I have enjoyed this series of books about Shaun a fishing guide, private detective, and artist that keeps himself perpetually broke. He is good at puzzles and unraveling mysteries that others seem to have trouble with.
    The local color throughout these books add a real feeling of down home comfort through each of these books.
    These are good reads for a rainy weekend
