The Montana Mysteries Featuring Gabriel Du Pré Volume Four PDF Summary

The half Indian cattle inspector and “character of legendary proportions” is back—in this beloved contemporary western mystery series (Ridley Pearson). Officially, Gabriel Du Pré is the cattle inspector for Toussaint, Montana, responsible for making sure no one tries to sell cattle branded by another ranch. Unofficially, he is responsible for much more than cows’ backsides. The barren country around Toussaint is too vast for the town’s small police force, and so, when needed, this hard-nosed Métis Indian lends a hand. In Gabriel Du Pré “Bowen has taken the antihero of Hemingway and Hammett and brought him up to date . . . a fresh, memorable character” (The New York Times Book Review). Badlands: When a mysterious cult takes over a cattle ranch, the people of Toussaint try to ignore their suspicious behavior. But when Du Pré gets a tip from an FBI contact that seven Host of Yahweh defectors were recently shot to death, he takes another look at the glassy-eyed conclave. Behind their peaceful smiles, evil lurks. “Gripping and humorous . . . truly riveting.” —Publishers Weekly The Tumbler: A few years back, Du Pré led a documentary film crew down the Missouri River to commemorate the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Rumor now has it that the Montana fiddler is in possession of the long-lost writings of Meriwether Lewis, and an unscrupulous billionaire has kidnapped two of Du Pré’s friends to get his hands on the journals. “[Du Pré’s] moral center is unshakable. Another wonderful adventure in a great series.” —Booklist Stewball: When his aunt Pauline’s latest husband turns up shot, execution-style, Du Pré goes undercover to infiltrate a cabal of wealthy gamblers who pass their time racing horses in the barren Montana brush, among other nefarious activities. “[The] fast-paced narrative offers ample doses of local color, evenly spaced bursts of violence and an unforced laid-back style.” —Publishers Weekly
