This is the fourth Blanco County, Texas mystery starring John Marlin, a game warden and Texas Peace Officer. Two sides of the gun control issue are addressed in this book with humor, wit and satire. Marlin believes that criminals, not guns are the problem. He is not a fanatic. However he is faced with fanatics on both sides, pro and con. There are a lot of characters to keep up with but I think you will like this book. It kind of reminds me of Carl Haaisen only in Texas.
