Summary

The gruesome corpse of a young woman is found beside a long Montana highway called the Hi-Line. Her jaw and teeth are missing, and she is impossible to identify. Full of anger and without a clue, Du Pre begins to hunt the countryside for her murderer. As more dismembered corpses - all young women - are discovered, the small ranching community goes into shock. Madelaine, Du Pre's fierce and wise lover, makes him swear that he will do justice for the victims, whatever it takes. When Madelaine's own daughter goes missing, Du Pre becomes desperate for a clue. He cannot decipher the mysterious messages the Hi-Line Killer places in his murder scenes. Thinking like a hunter, Du Pre must imagine how a serial killer's mind works - and explore the troubling evidence that there might be two of them.

Satisying

Notches is easily the most satisfying of the first four novels in the Montana Mystery series. It had a solid plot with more focus on action forward movement than previous novels. The Audible performance is strong, with no doubt as to which character is speaking. In spite of the serious storyline there is still humor, warmth, a bit of mysticism, and enjoyable characters. Highly recommend.

Good Story

It took a bit to get used to this narrator. I so enjoyed the books read by Christopher Lane, and this is very different. Nevertheless, it is a great book and a story that keeps your attention. By far the best so far which are narrated by Jim Meskimen.

Additional note: I listened to/read book 3 after this book. To the others who did not like book 3 - this one will make up for it.

WoW!

You won't know who did it till the end. And what a heart ache of a story. Must say the narrator is one of the best I have heard! In one paragraph he can go from a young girl to an old man with men and women of all ages in between!! Please keep this man as the narrator on all these books.

The story held my attention from beginning to end!

While some content was violent, the story was realistic and the narration was perfect. The characters came to life as the story unfolded. This was a great read!

A good read.

good De Pre novel. reflects the north Western culture, with a little historical reference and atmosphere.
