Dead Dog Blues SIGNED BARGAIN  $22.95  $10.90 



New York: St. Martins Press, 1994. First Edition - 6 X 9. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. Fine / Fine. ISBN: 0312109636.

A barking dead dog? You got it! The second of Neal Barrett Jr.s fast-paced, wacky mysteries, Dead Dog Blues, set in small-town Texas, has the oddest and most colorful collection of characters youll find anywhere, all of them in frenzied motion. Theres Max Coomer, the towns richest man (except, perhaps, for black Earl Murphy, whos made himself a pot of money on Wall Street but hasnt finished building his house and sleeps in his white Aston Martin Lagonda). Theres Coomers preteen daughter, the towns predatory jail bait; the obligator dumb-as-dirt police chief; Cecily the Yogurt Queen; Cecilys boyfriend, our hero, private detective and temporary town Marshall Jack Track; and of course a lot of town citizens, most of them definitely red above their collars. Then theres the dead dog-a barking dead dog. Someone has wired him up to bark at peak volume, and tied him in Max Coomers backyard. And thats Jack Tracks first case upon his return to Pharaoh, Texas, after long absence. That is just the beginning, and its not long before Max himself is the victim of homicide (he doesnt bark however). From there on, things get faster and funnier and, at the same time more suspenseful, as very likable people get into nasty trouble. Our copies are signed by Mr. Neal, and these are done especially for the Overlook readers.
