I was curious as to whether they gave the Tarot a decent telling, and yes, that part was pretty accurate and funny at times. I also loved the cover, created by a friend of mine.

I quit at page 136. I kept reading that far, because I was hoping that at some point there would be a denouement of the main character realizing divination is real .. or some kind of redemption.

But then I realized I had developed a hard dislike for all the characters except maybe the cop (to the extent he was developed at all). Driven by self-consciously snappy, glib dialogue, and attitude up to our necks, it just annoyed the hell out of me. Goodbye, so long, I really don't care.

Soooooo glad it was only a library book.

It's always a pleasure to immerse myself in Steve Hockensmith's Old West with the Amlingmeyer brothers. In Hunters of the Dead, there are characters going incognito, bad guys with guns, the lucrative nut butter business, an Apache named Eskaminzim who reminded me a bit of Inspector Clouseau's valet, Kato, and Old Red (Gustav) Amlingmeyer teaching himself to read.

For me, the icing on the Hockensmith cake is the fact that there's always something to learn while I'm enjoying the story; in this case, the cutthroat early days of paleontology. And as for Eskaminzim, he has one of my favorite lines in the book: "You whites have so many words for stupid. I guess you need them."

There seems to be a trip to Texas in the Amlingmeyer brothers' future, and I'm looking forward to that. Get your hands on this series if you're in the mood for some lighthearted (yet educational) fun set in the Old West. It's a treat.
