Red, Green, or Murder By
Steven F. Havill
In Posadas County, New Mexico, retired undersheriff Bill Gastner understands two things: most criminals aren't as smart as they think they are, and human nature is fairly predictable. When a full cattle truck and trailer go missing along with the ranch hand driving it, and the herd and its cow dog are found roaming the highway, Gastner suspects the young driver was the vicitim of the hijacking. After the truck is spotted crossing the border without its original occupant, things look grim.
