Summary:

Because 1893 is a tough year in Montana, any job is a good job. When Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as ranch hands at the secretive Bar VR cattle spread, they're not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a comfortable campfire around which they can enjoy their favourite pastime: scouring "Harper's Weekly" for stories about the famous Sherlock Holmes. When the boys come across a dead body that looks a whole lot like the leftovers of an unfortunate encounter with a cattle stampede, Old Red sees the perfect opportunity to employ his Holmes-inspired "deducifyin" skills. Putting his ranch work squarely on the back burner, he sets out to solve the case. Big Red, like it or not (and mostly he does not), is along for the wild ride in this clever, compelling, and completely one-of-a-kind mystery.

    When my wife and I first started listening to this book, we were sure we were going to like it due to the broad cowboy dialect aspect of the dialogue. However, after a couple of chapters, we got used to it and by the end of the book we were really engaged by the two main characters and their relationship to one another. We found it very entertaining and it was true to the Holmesian style of detective novels.
