Summary

When Gabriel Du Pré's precocious granddaughter, Pallas, returns from her studies in Washington, D.C., the entire clan in Toussaint, Montana, is happy to see her. Except Du Pré, that is, because the crotchety old fiddlin' cowboy knows that where Pallas goes, trouble is likely to follow.

A van full of praying, protesting fundamentalist Christians has arrived in Toussaint at just about the same time. A young soldier follows, just back from Iraq, missing a leg, an eye, and his grip on reality. Du Pré suspects that he's going to have his hands full for the foreseeable future.

Graffiti appears on the door of clumsy Father Van Den Heuvel's church, and a cryptic phone call from a missing girl causes concern in town. When a confluence of these strange events and even stranger people threatens problems that even laid-back Du Pré can't ignore, another quirky, compelling, and purely enjoyable mystery unfolds in Peter Bowen's Montana, a land trouble tends to visit often, with unpredictable but fiercely entertaining results.

Wonderful

I gave Peter Bowen a listen on the off chance I may enjoy his stories, style of composition, depth of his characters, everything important to me in a book and am so glad I did.

Powerful

This one surely makes you think about extremism! What is religion and faith? Treat all with greater kindness and understanding. Love this read very much.

To much preaching

This was a great series, however an hour into this one and I am done. The betrayal of the Baptist’s as narrow minded, preachy, closed minded, and ignorant looks like the other side of the mirror. There are all kinds of ignorance.
