(Synopsis) The Dog is in Livingston, Montana, daydreaming about fishing the 'Stone and, as usual, subsisting on Swisher Sweets, vodka-Tang, and the hope that pretending to forget will be enough. He's forged a few tenuous friendships, and now finds himself watching from the bank as troubled local girl Jesse Ringer leads D'Ontario Sneed into the swift current of young love. It's sweet, really . but some of the locals object to the relationship on the basis of Sneed's skin color. Then the unthinkable: vibrant, wild Jesse is found shot in the head, and Sneed is passed out in her car, gun beside him, window seams taped, and engine running. Sneed is hospitalized for severe carbon monoxide poisoning and can't string together a sentence to defend himself, so it falls to the Dog. If only the Dog could run from his life without ending up in the tangle and snarl of the lives of others. A man who wants to lose himself in the current must be careful of his backcast; it'll always keep him tethered to a life he's trying to forget., AB00388.

(Synopsis) Florida law professor Maxwell Hunt wants nothing more than to spend his life married to El and teach international law in Gainesville. But after ten years of marriage El dies in a terrifying drift boat accident on the Snake River in Wyoming. Maxwell blames himself for not saving her. Despondent, he increasingly accepts “special work” for a federal agency while lecturing in such troubled countries as Sudan, Yugoslavia, Paraguay, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. His work is misinterpreted in Guatemala by the nation's drug lord, who nearly beats Maxwell to death, until he is rescued and flown back to the United States. To protect him, his death is announced and he is placed in a federal protection program with a new identity as Macduff Brooks, and a new location in Paradise Valley, Montana. He struggles to become a competent fly fishing guide, drinks too much Gentlemen Jack, and avoids serious relationships with women. But his new, quiet life is disrupted. A client on his drift boat is shot and killed by a sniper on the shore, Macduff's cabin is rigged with bombs, and he is drawn into his old work for the agency, being convinced to help thwart a second attempt by al-Qaeda extremists to topple New York City skyscrapers – the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. He meets a New York investment-banker lady, Lucinda Lang, who owns a ranch next to Brooks' Montana cabin, a relationship that threatens to compromise his attempts to avoid his Guatemalan assailant and an Islamist terrorist., AB01305.

(Synopsis) When the body of a lovely young woman is found floating beneath a party pontoon on a popular lake in northern Wisconsin on the same morning that a prominent widow is found bludgeoned in her gracious home, Loon Lake Police Chief Lew Ferris is caught short-handed. This is not a problem for Doc Osborne whom she deputizes to act as coroner and to assist with the investigation. Fishing aside, there’s nothing Osborne likes better than helping Lew -- a world-class fly fisherman in her own right – delve into Loon Lake’s criminal underworld. They’re joined in their efforts to untangle two seemingly unrelated murders by walleye-expert, talented tracker and teller of really bad jokes, Ray Pradt. A charming resort town on the surface, life in Loon Lake turns murky as bank officials soon discover that both victims’ accounts have been looted – along with a dozen others. One grisly development after another further links the two murders even though the victims did not know each other. Wealthy Chicagoans, visiting entrepreneurs and the young denizens of “Party Cove” complicate the scene. Whoever thought life in the Northwoods could be this dangerous?, AB01330.

(Synopsis) A hot August afternoon and Midwest Clinic CEO John McNeil has been working late. Working on his latest conquest, that is. Jen Williams is twenty-six, in charge of graphics for the hospital's PR division—and quite attractive in a healthy, athletic kind of way. She is quick to laugh and a little too quick to fall for guys. She is no virgin. And she is one of three women—including his wife—intimately familiar with McNeil. When Jen's youthful body is found with a single stab wound through the heart, suspicion falls on both McNeil's wife, who insists she is being stalked, and the striking hospital physician with whom he had just ended an affair. Pressure to find the killer falls on Loon Lake Police Chief Lewellyn Lew Ferris and Dr. Paul Doc Osborne, the retired dentist and forensic dental expert whom she has deputized to help with the investigation—when they are not taking a break for fishing and other personal pursuits. When the mayor demands Lew take early retirement—and Doc has to babysit his teenage granddaughter who won't stop texting—the frustrations mount. Desperate for a few hours off—and persuaded by Ray Pradt (a fishing guide who wears a stuffed trout on his head, so they should have known better)—to try fly fishing from kayaks, Doc and Lew find themselves in life-and-death straits on the river. This leads to an unexpected and macabre discovery that just may break the case., AB01332.

(Description) Light scuffing and bumps to DJ, else new. *** (Synopsis) William G. Tapply has created a fresh new world in BITCH CREEK, a steamy, perfectly crafted mystery introducing Stoney Calhoun, an unlikely hero. Stoney is a man without a past. A lightning strike obliterated his memory; and, as so many might like to do, he was given a chance to completely reinvent himself. That's not an easy task when a man doesn't know the slightest thing about himself . But Stoney was driven by some current within and ended up as a fishing guide in Maine. He's reeducating himself, he's in love, and life is good - until his friend and fellow fishing guide is murdered and Stoney suspects that he himself was the target. In a riveting process of revelation, Stoney begins investigating the murder and learns to his surprise that he is, in fact, a trained investigator. The process of discovering the murderer is also a process of self-discovery. Tapply has introduced an unlikely, yet intensely likeable protagonist. He has fashioned an ingenious plot simultaneously unfolding layers of personality and intrigue in his stunning new novel., AB00429.

Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) Stoney Calhoun hasn't recovered the memories he lost to a lightning strike seven years ago, but he's acting more and more like the cop he suspects he once was. A routine fishing trip to Maine's Casco Bay with historian Paul Vecchio as client and Stonewall Jackson Calhoun as guide ends prematurely when they stop at Quarantine Island and discover the corpse of a man who'd been tortured, castrated and set on fire. At first, Stoney refuses Sheriff Marshall Dickman's request for help. But he changes his mind after Kate Balaban, his bait-and-tackle partner and lover, tells him she's going to break off their affair, which has gone on under the approving eye of her MS-stricken husband, Walter, and Vecchio is shot to death as he sits outside Stoney's house. Questioning possible witnesses as doggedly as any pair of British coppers, the sheriff and his new deputy establish that Errol Watson, the Quarantine victim, was a convicted child molester who may not have been entirely undeserving of his horrifying fate. The State Police are convinced, reasonably enough, that the person who executed Watson was Franklin Dunbar, the father of his traumatized victim, who had concluded his court testimony by announcing that Watson should lose his masculinity and burn in hell. Stoney thinks differently. More ambitious and densely plotted than Stoney's heartfelt debut (Bitch Creek, 2004), but with the same unruffled sense of time and place., AB00203.

Signed by the Author! ***(Synopsis) Dahlgren is a former college football star, a veteran of the first Gulf War, and a former member of the Marine Corps elite Force Recon. He thought he put the world of intrigue and special forces behind him by becoming a fly-fishing guide. He’s the river keeper and guide on an expansive, private Montana river, owned by a media mogul. When the novel opens, Dahlgren is guiding his boss’s latest guest, a Mormon billionaire, down that river. It looks like an unexpected friendship is in the making—until the billionaire is bludgeoned to death, practically under Dahlgren’s nose. By a twist of fate—or is it?—Dahlgren doesn’t witness the murder. Instead, he’s immediately suspected of the crime. He has been framed. In an effort to defend himself, he must resort to the skills learned in Special Ops—skills he had hoped he’d never need again. As he delves further into the case, he finds himself embroiled with a band of neo-Nazi-type militia; a deadly serious, radical environmental movement; a colony of peaceful Hutterites; a kilt-wearing clandestine cattleman’s organization; and the FBI. All the while, he is led down a twisted path of discovery and into the deepest recesses of Mormon history., U01566.

(Description) Some edgewear and scuffing to book and DJ. *** (Synopsis) During a stakeout on upper Michigan's Borchard River, conservation officer Mercy Virdon witnesses a canoe livery owner's decapitation by a wire strung across the water. Mercy and her boyfriend Fitzgerald, an avid angler and Thoreau devotee, believe the prime suspect, a rival lodge owner, is being framed and start investigating.

Even villains and the sheriff are believable and intelligent. This agile mystery will appeal to readers who like Gregory Bean, Bill Tapply, or Dana Stabenow; to anglers, canoeists, and Thoreau fans., AB00882.

(Description) Book and unclipped jacket slightly bumped at edges. *** (Excerpt) A Category Four hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. Well-known reefs and wrecks have been covered up-and new ones have emerged. The old woman who visits Doc Ford's lab late one night has a haunting story, of a loved one lost while rendezvousing with a German submarine off the coast of Florida sixty years earlier, of her belief that he was being blackmailed and that the storm has given her a second chance to prove his innocence by uncovering the wreck of his boat-and the truth-if only Ford would look for it. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and sets in motion a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well, and other men want those things, men willing to commit terrible acts to get them. And the woman herself-the woman is not what she seems., U01209.
