Ben Rehder’s latest installment in the Blanco County Mystery series is just as masterly written as all the others in this series, maybe better. His characters are fully developed; from the sincerely serious County Game Warden protagonist to the two bumbling redneck jerks, Red O’Brien and Billy Don Craddock, with a loving touch of someone who knows them intimately. With a touch of country humor, and much moving around Blanco County Texas back roads and highways, Rehder weaves a web of mystery sure to please any fan of the genre.
In telling the tale the author offers two distinct life lessons; the sad results of homosexual intolerance by a few bigoted unaware rubes, and the behind the curtain crimes of big-time college football recruiting. Learning the lessons is half the fun of reading Hog Heaven.
Rehder never disappoints his readers. With a dry humor and clever plotting, he delivers a five-star entertainment that will have you smiling while page turning with delight.
