Publisher's Summary

When ex-sheriff and watermelon farmer Bud Shumway and his wife, Wilma Jean, head to Montana to pursue Bud's dream of learning to fly-fish, Bud never guesses he'll soon be deeply involved in trying to solve the mystery of a missing lunch lady he's never met, as well as trying to stay off the radar of a strange religious cult that believes in immortality while plotting to kill people.

Set in the magnificent Absaroka Mountains near Yellowstone National Park, this mystery will have you mystified and on edge as you follow Bud as he witnesses a grizzly bear resurrection, meets a young investigative reporter with a knack for following the wrong person, and dodges a shady John Deere salesman and religious guru, who Bud knows are up to no good.

All this, along with a combine demolition derby, meeting a Crow medicine woman with a cryptic message, losing his two beloved dogs, finding a fish made of stone, exploring old underground Prohibition tunnels, wrecking model railroads, and worrying about the Yellowstone supervolcano exploding, and you'll soon see why Bud wishes he'd never set foot in the Beartooth Cafe.

And of course, back home in Green River, Sheriff Howie tries to mediate ongoing feuds between Old Man Green and Junkyard Goldie, hoping Bud can keep them from killing each other, even though he's 1,000 miles away.

In any case, you'll find out what really happened to the lunch lady, and it might not be what you think.

    "Still enjoying this series"

    One thing you can always count on is Bud will always find trouble. Chinle Miller always writes original stories. She also proves that it is not necessary to use fowl language. If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, you'll be sure to enjoy this one. I advise readers to start with the first in the series.

    "Wrong narrator"

    Normally, I stay away from author performed books, but Chinle Miller has delivered a special magic with the narration of his own writing throughout all the books in this series, and I waited eagerly for this new release. To my dismay, the new narrator was such a disappointment that I quit half way through.

    I hate to downgrade any narrator, and believe there's a perfect book for every performer and vice versa. However, if this had been the first in the series, I wouldn't bought a second one. So, if you're just getting introduced to the Bud Shumway series, just skip this one.

    I didn't feel I could properly comment on the story.
