Dead Man's Fancy

Keith McCafferty's (Blue Devil on speypages) newest book just arrived
today. It'll have to wait a day or so since I had just started reading another
book by the late James Crumley - no fishing; just great crime fiction.
Here's a teaser from Keith's latest ---

Wolves howl as a riderless horse returns at sunset to the Culpepper Dude Ranch in the Madison Valley. The missing woman, Nanika Martinelli, is better known as the Fly Fishing Venus, a red-haired river guide who lures clients the way dry flies draw trout.

As Sheriff Martha Ettinger follows hoof tracks in the snow, she finds one of the men who has fallen under the temptressís spell impaled on the antler tine of a giant bull elk, a kill thatís been claimed by a wolf pack. An accident? If not, is the killer human or animal? With painter, fly fisherman, and sometimes private detective Sean Stranahanís help, Ettinger will follow clues that point to an animal rights group called the Clan of the Three-Clawed Wolf and to their svengali master, whose eyes blaze with pagan fire.

In their most dangerous adventure yet, Stranahan and Ettinger find themselves in the crossfire of wolf lovers, wolf haters, and a sister bent on revenge, and on the trail of an alpha male gone terribly wrong.

A recurring cast of interesting characters with as many twists and turns to the plot as the streams they fish. Looking forward to reading it.

great read

Keith Mc - Blue Devil - here on spey pages has served us up his latest
called "Dead Man's Fancy" and you will want to read this. A recurring
cast of intriguing characters ease us into this new tale that combines fly fishing
and crime fiction. Each book gets you wishing for Keith to offer you that next
one. I sure hope these fictional characters don't die out before I do!
Beg, borrow, or steal this one. You won't be sorry. One of my favorite
segments of the book was a confrontation between the fly guys and the
otters; remembering a thread here on spey pages.
Best to you all,
