Bo Tully - Sheriff, Blight County, Idaho
Avalanche, the second book by Patrick McManus about Sheriff Bo Tully, is an entertaining, funny and enjoyable murder mystery set in snowy Blight County, Idaho.
Sheriff Tully is asked by Blanche Wilson to investigate the disappearance of her husband Mike Wilson, the owner of the West Branch Lodge.
"It looks like we may be spending more time up at the lodge than we figured, "Tully said.
"We're trapped all right.It'll be a spell before the highway department gets the road cleared.Like next spring!"He licked the cigarette paper and sealed it with quivering fingers.
Tully walked over to the edge of the road and looked down into the canyon."Oh no!"he said.
Janice Duffy, a woman who is training sled dogs, is a former love interest who also despite being married, constantly flirts with Bo.
These adventures give Janice more opportunities to flirt and Bo more opportunities to try to keep her away.
Tully said, thinking about the girl at the cash register.
This novel, The Blight Way, introduces Sheriff Bo Tully to the host of McManus readers and marks McManus' entry into the field of mystery writing.
Read ExcerptAs usual, things were pretty quiet at the Blight County Sheriff's Office.Sheriff Bo Tully even had time to think about adding a few more of his watercolor paintings to the collection already hanging on the wall.
In fact, Tully even had time to feed a fly to his pet spider, Wallace, before he answered a phone call from Batim Scragg.Batim is an ex-con who owns a ranch over in the nearby town of Famine.Scragg reported that he had found a dead body hanging over a fence on his ranch and thought maybe Tully ought to come out and take a look.
Alerting his office crew to the situation, Tully heads across country toward Famine and delays only long enough to pick up his father, Pap, whose retirement from his sheriff's job had opened up the position for Bo.Pap was about to celebrate his 75th birthday and Bo figured that he would give Pap the opportunity to join in on the investigation of the murder as a birthday present.
At the Scragg ranch, they find the body still draped over the fence.It is wearing a dark-blue pinstripe suit with two small bullet holes in the back, one black patent-leather shoe, and one black sock.Tully immediately knows he is dealing with something out of the ordinary.After all, no one from Blight County would be caught dead in black patent-leather shoes.
To get the investigation off on the right foot, Tully calls his one man Crime Scene Investigative Unit to the scene.He also elicits help from an Indian tracker named Dave who owns a local restaurant that features huge chicken fried steaks.
As the investigation moves forward at a rapid pace, Tully and his crew must deal with a myriad of obstacles and a few dead-end paths.In the end, however, he proves himself and his staff more than able to deal with these ever changing circumstances and bring the case to a satisfying ending.
Finally, I must admit that I like Bo Tully.He comes across as smart, quick-witted, enthusiastic, and amiable.The fact that he obviously cares about his father and those with whom he works adds a nice touch to his humanity.
