A Montana Mystery Featuring Gabriel Du Pre Montana, "the last best place" of the disappearing American West, is the setting of Peter Bowen's splendid first mystery novel in a series featuring Gabriel Du Pre. A cattle-brand inspector and occasional sheriff's deputy, Du Pre moves easily among the ranchers, cowboys, Native Americans, barflies, dreamers, and Eastern dudes who populate what's left of the frontier. In the desolate hills of the Fascelli family ranch, a skeleton has been discovered. The sheriff needs Du Pre's long experience in Montana to identify the bones. What Du Pre finds leads him on a search through the history of a troubled family, a search that brings him closer to a secret from his own past. Along the way, Du Pre meets a range of interesting folk, some to his liking, some decidedly not.

Peter Bowen lives in Livingston, Montana, and has worked as a cowboy, hunting and fishing guide, folksinger, poet, essayist, and novelist. He has written the Gabriel Du Pre mysteries in part because "the Metis are a great people, a wonderful people, and not many Americans know anything about them."From AudioFile:
Montana sheriff's deputy Gabriel Du Pre investigates when a skeleton is found on a ranch in this first novel in a series. The delight of this mystery is not the plot, but the characters and the details of life among the Meti (half-French, half-Native American) people. Christopher Lane shares those details with an intimate voice that drawls but still moves quickly. He gives a thick but clear accent to Du Pre, occasionally blurring the lines between Du Pre's conversations and his thoughts but still creating a rich character. He gives a whiny voice to the alcoholic Bart as the novel weaves itself around those two characters. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
