Murder in Dogleg City is another great read from the talented ensemble of authors writing under the name of Ford Fargo.
Less bloody than its predecessors (Wolf Creek: Bloody Trail and Wolf Creek; Kiowa Vengeance), the third volume in the Wolf Creek series mixes classical western tropes with a twisty whodunit that would have made Agatha Christie proud. Suspense and intrigue wind through every page. Even seemingly innocuous details and relationships play significant roles in the resolution.
Authors (in order of appearance) L.J. Washburn, Jerry Guin, Chuck Tyrell, Troy D. Smith, Matthew P. Mayo, and Phil Dunlap introduce a bevy of new characters in MURDER IN DOGLEG CITY. The only familiar face belongs to Marshal Sam Gardner, whose sarcastic intellect and cynicism can't quite hide the tiny embers of honor that life and circumstances keep trying to extinguish. Beneath a veneer of official corruption -- an open secret in the town -- Gardner is a decent man, often juxtaposing a startling compassion with an almost sneering disrespect for human weaknesses like drunkenness and idealism. His complexity reflects the best and the worst of everyone around him, tying together the story's disparate threads.
It's almost impossible to mention juicy bits of the story without revealing essential pieces of the murder-mystery puzzle. A number of excursions into characters' backstories are more meaningful than they initially seem -- and what a mesmerizing bunch of characters this group is. From the upstanding (Deputy Quint Croy) to the pitiable (town drunk Rupe Tingley) to the overtly or discretely dangerous (bounty hunter Rattlesnake Jake and gambler Samuel Jones, respectively) to the downright mercenary (saloon owner Ira Breedlove), each is the story's standout...until the next one takes over the narration.
An excellent read, MURDER IN DOGLEG CITY will keep readers entertained and on their toes until the very last sentence.
