Publisher's Summary

Bo Tully, sheriff of Blight County, Idaho, has dealt with small-town crime throughout his long, storied career. Now, contemplating retirement after years on the job, Tully is faced with perhaps his most perplexing case yet. When area bald eagles start getting picked off by a ghost-like killer, and when a prominent local rancher is murdered by an arrow with eagle fletching, things gets complicated fast. In this fast-paced whodunit, Tully has a vast array of suspects to choose from, including the rancher's gorgeous, bird-loving wife, who mysteriously leaves for a ranch in Mexico the day of the murder; the beautiful chef at the local house of ill repute, who is well-known as a budding ornithologist; and the ranch foreman, who is rumored to be having an affair with his boss's widow.

Will Tully put the pieces of the puzzle together, yet again? Will sending his dad, the former sheriff of Blight County, along with his number two man, down to Mexico help solve the mystery? And what about the mysterious large circles in the snow that Tully finds around the ranch, with no footprints leading in or out of the area?

It all adds up to another engrossing series of twists and turns. And in the end, Tully gets his man… or woman… or does he?

Still Good, But Not Great

Although another reviewer spoiled the mystery, I read this novel anyway since I enjoyed the author's other works. This book was a bit different in that some of the characters I liked from past books were not in this one. For example, Pap was used as a tracker with no mention of Dave. I suppose the author is retiring the character although there is an opening to continue the series. The book did have the usual humor in it which made it worth reading. I hope Bo Tully returns with a new adventure as I already miss him.

I've had better...

I love his work as a humorist telling fictionally true stories about himself and his childhood. However, in my opinion, Mr. McManus's attempt at mystery fell short in most ways not succeeding in being very engaging, mysterious, or even very funny. I just don't think that this genre is his forte.

Enjoyable

Circles In The Snow was a very enjoyable listen, Patrick F. McManus is becoming a favorite, i really liked his Pops at the beginning of the story. Peter Coleman does a fine job narrating. this was one of my selections from Audible Plus.

Fantastic Finish to the Bo Tully Series!

This is book #5 in the series. It can stand alone, but it's better to listen to them in order. I love the ending, no spoilers but it wasn't what I expected. I'm sad that there are no more. The world lost a great writer and very funny man when Patrick McManus passed away. Peter Coleman is better at narration voices in this last and final book.

Entertaining story

The narrator does a great job of telling this story to keep this person entertained. This is a very good book in a series.

"Circles" was a "fun" read....

Even though it is a murder mystery, I found "Circles in the Snow" to be a lighter story, with funny quips throughout. I really enjoyed the book.
