With this follow-up to The Royal Wulff Murders, acclaimed author Keith McCafferty brings back fly-fishing PI Sean Stranahan for a second quirky adventure. When two graves are found on the mysterious Sphinx Mountain, the local sheriff suspects murder and calls on Stranahan to join the case. Then a vintage Gray Ghost lure from a riverside cabin disappears, and Stranahan begins to suspect that a deeper mystery is lurking just beneath the surface.
I've had such a difficult time recently with mystery series that have great first books and then lousy, often rushed follow up books. Thank goodness that isn't the case with this series set in wild Montana. I enjoyed book one and to me book two may even be better.
Be aware, this second entry in the series is more focused on hunting, ammunition and guns--but it still has some fly fishing, streams and fly tying too--so not to worry. The characters are more fully developed, the dialogue good and the descriptions of wild Montana beauty excellent.
This is becoming a series that I am beginning to look forward to. Engaging, some gruesome detail of violence and rough talk. However, overall consistent and well written. Looking forward to book three.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Good storyline<br/>Good narration<br/>Good characterization <br/>What else can I say.... ah yes, I would recommend to someone else and I can't wait for another book by Keith McCafferty.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gray Ghost Murders?
The fact that someone can develop a story line around fishing lures is memorable to me!
What does Rick Holmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love the sound of his voice as Shanahan
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I could not "put it down". Had to listen to it all.
Any additional comments?
Waiting to hear more from Keith.......

Keith McCafferty has written another great addition to the Sean Strangham series. The characters continue to grow. Rick Holmes does a great job bringing the characters to life.

Love the characters in this series, so glad I found these books. As an avid fly fisherman and hiker I'm really enjoying the balance between the story and the beautifully depicted landscapes.
Very slow at times but i thimk overall would read another book by same author.
2nd book in the series, and there was no drop in story telling. There is plenty of questions and blood to be sure. Gir problems grow, and you will conclude this book not knowing what future choices will pop up. Shaun's fishing buds provide lots of info, and humor, Sam is a bigger than life character, with free spirited comments about anything that works its way in to his head.
There are so many subjects brought up in this story there will be more than a few you can fins some interest
Try to read in order it helps with understanding who these characters really are
Some good secondary characters. Lots of character detail. Production is good and the narration entertains.
