Summary

Gabriel Du Pre is back in action, coming to the aid of a whistleblower on the run, in this all-new novel in a "wonderfully eclectic and enjoyable series" (Booklist).

When a hunted military whistleblower and his family need someplace to hide and someone to trust, Toussaint, Montana, is the place, and Gabriel Du Pre the man. The Metis Indian former cattle inspector and sometimes deputy is happy to offer protection, even though he's already got his hands full with an ailing granddaughter, a meddling medicine man, and a Kazakh eagle hunter prowling the hills above town.

As a guard at a Kabul prison, Hoyt Poe witnessed his fellow soldiers abusing the Afghan inmates. Poe's testimony threatens to expose the military contractor that led the prison's brutal interrogation program. Now, Temple Security's billionaire founder, Lloyd Cutler, wants him dead. But how long can the fugitive and his family lay low before Cutler's mercenaries come to Du Pre's hometown looking for trouble?

Packed with pulse-pounding suspense, wry humor, and the romance of small-town Montana, Solus continues the irresistible adventures of the one of a kind Gabriel Du Pre, "a character of legendary proportions" (Ridley Pearson, New York Times best-selling author).

Solus is the 15th book in the Montana Mysteries Featuring Gabriel Du Pre, but you may enjoy listening the series in any order.

Disappointing chapter in once-great series

It's been four years since the last installment in this series, and I reread the full series over the last few months before my pre-order arrived. The once-clearly-drawn characters who inhabit Toussaint seemed lifeless puppets used as an excuse to discuss an unrelated subject. The main plot concerned events in the Middle East about which the author is passionate. I am unreasonably annoyed with continuity errors: the race horse Stewball, introduced in book 12 as ridden by, then given by Bart to Gabriel's granddaughter Lourdes, now belongs to Pallas, and Moondog (sold by Bart in book 12, then given by Bart to Pallas in book 13) belongs to Lourdes. Gabriel still talks in his Metis dialect, but doesn't seem to belong in this story.

I couldn't put it down but wanted to savor

Bowen has given us a series that a reader feels lucky to experience. 15 books in and he exceeds high expectations. He's blazing his own path, taking us on a journey with unfamiliar places and peoples you can't help but care about - their humanity brings them near - you care and hold on the whole way.

bittersweet

I'm always sad when I come to the last book in a series that I've enjoyed and know there will be no more as the author has died. I guess I should fess up that I write this review having listened to only the books in the Audible Plus catalog. But still I listed knowing it was the last book, wondering if the author would give any clues that he knew the end was coming.

This book had an army family of 3 come to Touisant to be hidden away after the soldier had become a whistleblower and reported some crimes he saw being committed. A lot of people died in this book, some of them good people and it got fairly sad at times, especially at the end.

Peter Bowen must have been an old coot himself. I saw pictures of him with long white hair and a long white beard. He lived among the characters of the books he wrote and he knew them and the Montana lifestyle well.

I love these books

The plot is solid, the characters are believable and the story line reflected reality in 2018 which was a horrible time for America. I found myself crying more than once. The commentary on the military, and on the Americans who are the bedrock of the military was spot on. And having some characters, who were Texans, made me smile since I am a Texan, and I am a veteran. These books make me want to go to Montana, see what it's really like, but I would be an outsider and I would not belong. These books make me feel like I do belong in these stories, with these people and they are my friends. Opening the book is like opening a door, being welcomed in to sit at their table, and listen to their story.

Ugh

Couldn’t even get past the first chapter. Very bad dialog, poorly acted. Conversation choppy and poorly written. He said, she said; repeat. Sorry I got it.

Sad way to go...

There is not much of Gabriel in this anti-war, anti-government story. The medicine man is much absent too. To top it off, they keep using this narrator that ruins Gabriel and others. If this keeps up it is time for Gabriel to retire. PS: should have stayed in Montana...sad way to go.

The last one 😪

When Peter Bowen passed, we also lost all the people we had come to love in a small town we all hoped to see. This was his last, and I feel lost. Here Palace is leaving, but no mention of Ripper at all! I feel like I will see that little town and all the people in my mind for a long time. A will wonder what there up to. Was a really well written book, and what a great story line. Really close to home. So sit down with a large Ditch, and enjoy! 💔💖
