Publisher's Summary

The seventh novel in the acclaimed Sean Stranahan mystery series: Scarecrows are appearing in the cliffs above the Smith River in Montana, and state investigator Harold Little Feather is trying to discover the culprit leaving the hay figures in the cliffs, with signs painted that read "No Smith River Mine - Not on My Watch." The event is related to a copper mine project that threatens the river, but his investigation takes an ominous turn when a little girl claims that a scarecrow chased her in the night. 

At the same time, Sean Stranahan and his friend "Rainbow" Sam Meslik have been contracted as guides to float a party down the river, which includes the manager of the mine project and the president of "Save Our Smith", a grassroots organization devoted to stopping the project. 

Both men grew up on the Smith on neighboring ranches. When a dead body is found in the park, it's revealed that the two have a shared history that runs much deeper and darker than their opposing viewpoints.

Sean, Martha and Harold are back...

...and better than ever. Although this is a Sean Stranahan mystery, it is really a Harold Littlefeather story, and one that is a genuine nail biter. I agree with the previous reviewer who was going to give up on the series after the Hemingway story. There are parts that are taut, gripping and even gruesome, and parts that are light and amusing. McCafferty is back in the groove, and I anxiously await the next story.

Best of the series

After the Hemingway story, I was not sure I wanted to continue with this series. Glad I gave McCafferty another chance. This story is entertaining from start to finish. Looking forward to the next one.
