Anglers Book Supply Co 1-4165-3277-3 Avalanche - A Sheriff Bo Tully Mystery
By

Rating
Sheriff Bo Tully of Blight County, Idaho, is back. Tully and his retired sheriff father, Pap, are on their way up to West Branch Lodge, a fancy mountain resort, to investigate a missing persons case when suddenly an avalanche thunders down the mountain. Tully just barely manages to outrun it in his car, but the road behind them is blocked and will be for a while, so they'll be spending much more time up at the lodge than they had planned. Which would be fine, if only the spoiled and snobbish guests of the lodge didn't think Tully, Pap, and their friend Dave Perkins didn't quite deserve to be there. Dave gets in a little tussle with some frat boys that leaves one of them wishing he'd never opened his mouth. In the midst of dealing with their various fellow guests, Tully and company find out that the avalanche dammed up West Branch River, and Tully has a brush with death when he rescues a couple of girls shacked up in one of the small cabins along the river. After that little adventure Tully's looking forward to a little rest and relaxation while waiting for the roads to clear, but instead runs into an old flame back at the lodge. She's married, but alone at the lodge for the week, and the possibility of an illicit affair looms...

Reviews

An engaging romp that recalls the best work of Bill DeAndrea, the second Bo Tully whodunit (after 2006's The Blight Way) from humor columnist McManus sends the Blight County, Idaho, sheriff into the mountains after local woman Blanche Wilson reports her husband, Mike, missing from the upscale wilderness lodge the couple run. Tully heads into the field to investigate with his father (and predecessor as local lawman), a trip almost cut fatally short by an avalanche. Suspicious of the timing of that apparently natural event, Tully soon finds the corpse of Mike Wilson's business partner and a whopping motive for Blanche to have done away with them both: a multimillion-dollar insurance policy. Crime solving takes a back seat to the banter between Tully and his father ("Pap"), as well as the numerous attractive women they encounter along the way, but the solution is a logical if unsurprising one.

"In Avalanche, McManus offers up a pleasurable read. In Bo Tully, he gives us a man to watch." -- The Oregonian
