Rone Chato is content to run a dude ranch and has no desire to return to Denver police work. However, he can’t say no to his best friend whose wife has been kidnapped with other wealthy women in a bizarre and daring operation. Chato soon becomes a target as he peels layers of information from past crimes that have affected his professional and private lives.
The story was different, in many aspects, to the usual 'whodunit?'
Interesting choice of victim(s) by the author.
The story was well crafted ... carefully thought out and constructed. 'All bases were covered.'
And that led to the major drawback of this book.
TOO MUCH DETAIL.
Descriptions of actions and of elements of story development were gone over in fine detail, and then reenforced by the same details presented once again, but from a slightly different angle. At times, the excessive detail had my mind wandering, but I didn't have any trouble getting back to the story, when I caught myself doing that. The story hadn't really advanced anywhere beyond me.
None the less, it was a good listen but, as the title says, look for an abridged version.
