Item Details

"1893 is a touch year in Montana, and any job is a good job. When brothers Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as hands at a secretive ranch, they're not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a few free moments to enjoy their favorite pastime: reading stories about Sherlock Holmes. When another hand turns up dead, Old Red sees the perfect opportunity to employ hi Holmes-inspired 'deducifyin'' skills, and 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."--P. [4] of cover.

I believe eveyone would love the series of the Otto and Gustav Amlingmeyer. I have laughed listening to the CD's that were ordered. Otto thinks like "Sherlock Holmes" and Gustav writes like Dr Watson.
A great western series.
