The Double-Jack Murders


This is the first Sheriff Bo Tully book I've read.


In The Double-Jack Murders, an escaped psychopathic killer tires to kill Blight County, Idaho, Sheriff Bo Tully while Tully solves the 1927 murders of two prospectors.


This is a quick read, straight narrative (more so than any book I've read for a long time), and a simple story.  That's what attracts me. 


Tully's crew abounds with interesting characters.  The book ends with a twist.


Patrick F. McManus isn't shy about leaving parts of the mystery unsolved.  In a way, that seems natural.  Life is like that.


So, I recommend the book.

I came to the book through a review on Lesa's Book Critiques.
