Publisher's Summary

When televangelist Peter Boothe decides to build a megachurch on the banks of the Pedernales River, he thinks his biggest problem will be a few unhappy neighbors. However, when backhoe operator Hollis Farley unearths a rare fossil on the construction site - a discovery that could lead to plenty of embarrassing Darwinian publicity - the cover-up begins. Soon, Farley is dead, shot in the back with an arrow, and Game Warden John Marlin is asked to help with the case. What he and the local deputies find is a suspect list of biblical proportions: Could it have been the bitter geology professor? The private fossil collector with a somewhat unusual fetish? The minister’s wife who takes the Commandments rather lightly? Or the geriatric environmentalist with a mean right hook? Nothing is sacred in Rehder’s most laughable satire yet, a twisted tale of greed, corruption, infidelity, and, yes, paleontology.

Mystery, humor and heart.

Another strong delivery from Rehder combining a solid mystery with humor against a backdrop of small town life in Texas, all while examining important issues - this time televangelism and morality. Stands alone, but better as part of the series. I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.

illusions and delusions

I just totally love how Marlin and Garza work together seamlessly and support each other as friends and work allies. The myriad of other interesting characters add depth and volume to the crazy parade and their antics.The culprit is not obvious as many possible villains have motive and opportunity . Another great mystery, and what a ride. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job with voices and expressions bringing it to life.

My opinion

I usually love Ben Rehder’s books and laugh out loud at times but I found this one difficult to follow. I’m sorry to say I won’t be buying anymore preformed by Robert King Ross. Perhaps with a different author but not Rehder’s books.

Another case for the game warden

I enjoyed this book. This is book six in the series and you don't need to have listened to the previous books to enjoy it as each book is a stand alone. Like the rest of the books I did find the story jumps around as it is told by multiple characters and there are a lot of sub plots that you wonder how there are all connected, I don't think this has worked for every book because there is always a lot of new characters to get use too but it did work for this one and I found I enjoyed it. The mystery was interesting and I liked the dinosaur elements to the story as it made for an unusual story. When Hollis Farley is found dead, game warden John Marlin is called in to help. Hollis was working on church grounds helping to build a new church for a televangelist when he made a discovery, a rare fossil. So who killed him? And why? Is some one connected to the church trying to keep the discovery a secret so the building work could carry on? Or was it a rare fossil collector that wanted the fossil for themselves? With a number of suspects will Marlin be able to find the killer before he is supposed to walk down the aisle? The narrator was okay but I did find he did not have very much range with his voices and the characters tended to sound the same so you couldn't always tell you was speaking. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
