About the Book
The southeast corner of Oregon is dry, flat, and, in certain areas, spectacularly beautiful. It probably has as many cows, sheep, and horses as people. The southeast corner of Oregon is not the usual place where a former investigative reporter–turned-college professor hangs out. The southeast corner of Oregon is the setting for the latest Thomas Martindale Mystery by Ron Lovell
When Margo Tateman, an old high school friend, calls Martindale for help in finding her missing husband, it is to this remote part of the state where he goes. In and around Steens Mountain andthe tiny town of Frenchglen, Tom tries to find Michael Tateman. In his search, he encounters people who try to stop him. From a corrupt sheriff to a powerful rancher with political connections, many people have a lot to hide, particularly from an outsider with a history of not minding his own business. All trails lead to the remote Kiger Gorge, home to a herd of wild Mustangs, descended from horses brought to the West by Spanish conquistadores in the 17th century. Tom wants to find the missing man; the men want the horses and will do anything to get them, including murder.
This is Lovell’s ninth book in the Martindale series which includes Murder at Yaquina Head, Dead Whales Tell No Tales, Lights, Camera, Murder!, Murder Below Zero, Searching for Murder, Descent IntoMadness, Yaquina White and Murder in E-flat Major.
