Great Read June 2019 While currently reading, I ve felt compelled to comment on this book Having just turned 73, I am of a similar age to Gastner and to the retired gun dealer I see many of my friends in the personality of the retired gun dealer I don t remember other police procedurals and mysteries addressing the aging process, medical complications and death of friends in such a poignant manner.Just finished the story Still a The dealing with death continued throughout but the two separate murder lines overtook the aging topic Wonderful ending Popular Ebook, Red, Green, Or Murder By Steven F Havill This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Red, Green, Or Murder, Essay By Steven F Havill Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You This series is so fun, and I enjoy listening to it on audiobook while working out, cooking, or doing chores However, I have a severe reservation about the series, which distracts me every time I read one of these books each time Bill goes to his favorite restaurant for a green chili burrito, I get the urge to eat Mexican food This is a very dangerous consequence and a frequent one, as anyone who has read the series knows Nonetheless, because of the great characters, setting, and interesting plots, I struggle on in spite of the detriment to a healthy diet Good BookExcellent story as usual from this author This one seems out of sequence since Leona isn t county administrator and little Francis isn t playing the piano Also the pharmacist was arrested in another story, While I prefer the books in which Bill Gastner is still the sheriff, I still enjoy his character and influence in solving murders in the county and beyond The new sheriff and under sheriff are great characters in their own right. Three and a half stars to be discussed in Feb. A great read Should be read after Bag Limit, 9 in the Bill Gastner group Red, Green, or Murder is really 10 in Gastner so then 7 in the Posadas County group. I just love Bill GastnerThis series actually extends over the careers of two law officers who hold a position called Undersheriff in the fictional Posadas County, New Mexico An undersheriff is the person right below the elected position of Sheriff and is appointed by the Sheriff Generally, the Undersheriff would be the expert in the law that is there to advise the elected Sheriff The first half of the series covers Undersheriff Bill Gastner, an experienced law officer Bill would laugh at that at just say that he is old Bill is sort of grumpy, a little creeky in the knees, moves slowly but makes up for it with a lot of experience and really knowing the people of Posadas County, New Mexico He is especially good at thinking while eating very spicy burritos at all hours of the day or night.The second half of the series covers the career of Undersheriff Estelle Guzman She is quite talented and, for me, simply not as interesting as Bill She is admirable and I would hire her to be my Undersheriff because she really knows what she is doing butshe is really boring.Unfortunately, this book is Bill Gastner s last hurrah as a main character In this story Bill is no longer the Undersheriff Instead, he is a state livestock inspector But, he still gets caught up in the events of the book In it, everything that makes you love Bill is on display his knowledge and connections, his bravery and his late night ruminating His beloved burritos are even part of a mystery.There are actually two mysteries in this story One involvesRead at If you have ever been in New Mexico, you are familiar with the eternal question, Red or Green.In this case, it s the green that s the killer.Former Posadas County sheriff Bill Gastner is supposedly retired but finds himself up to his Livestock Inspector badge in solving the murder of his good friend.This book will resonate with everyone familiar with small town practices, rural living or New Mexico It covers all three.It s a very satisfying read as Mr Havill hits all the right notes in his 16th novel in the Posadas County Mystery series.The constant flow of comments about aging, seeing the familiar little kids stepping into positions of adult responsibility, finding all the hints of progress make for a comforting story.
