|Summary, etc.:||When Earl Alden is found dead, dangling from a wind turbine, it's his wife, Missy, who is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his mother-in- law, a woman he dislikes heartily, and now he doesn't know what to do --especially when the early signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder: Is Earl's death what it appears to be? Is Missy being set up?|

When Joe Pickett's mother-in-law is accused of murdering her latest husband, there's a part of him that can't believe his good luck: the social-climbing harpy has had it in for him ever since he married his beloved Marybeth. Unfortunately, it's hard for him to believe she's guilty. Could a petite woman in her midsixties really hoist a body to the top of a wind turbine and chain it to the spinning blade? What's her motive, anyway? Reluctantly, the dogged Wyoming game warden begins his own investigation, one that seems to ruffle the feathers of just about everybody involved. The eleventh installment in Box's superlative series returns Pickett to his old stomping grounds, Twelve Sleep County, and spins a complicated mystery that entangles familiar series characters in new and surprising ways. Despite Joe's guess that "things are going to get real Western," they end with a courtroom surprise ("like fuckin' Perry Mason!" as one old-timer observes). But a closing scene promises plenty of action in the next book, featuring fan favorite Nate Romanowski. Box's many fans won't be disappointed. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The 75,000-copy first printing may or may not cover all the devoted fans of Box's long-running series. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
