Rusty Nelson is quickly becoming one of my favorite readers and he's perfect for the Posadas County police procedurals by Steven Havill. I have read a couple of these now and they are excellent. ( )

Havill can take the most seemingly ordinary events and show the reader that's as in many things there is more than meets the eye. His characters are strong intense people for the most part and rarely have knee-jerk reactions to things. Calmness and reason will always win the day.

I like the Posadas County boos because I am educated,entertained and improved after I read one. ( )

Undersherriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman has her hands full when the investigation of an insurance agent’s death leads close to home. While trying to piece together a puzzle, she also has to deal with the accidental death of a young woman with two children and two men who might be their father.

Set in fictional Posadas County, New Mexico, Steven F. Havill’s mysteries are always a satisfying read. Mr. Havill’s storytelling skills have made his characters old friends and I usually pick up his books and don’t put them down until I’m done. Highly recommended.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312307853, Hardcover)

Another Posadas County mystery with Estelle Reyes-Guzman as the undersheriff, but with the ever more popular Bill Gastner peering out of the wings to which he dispatched himself upon retirement. Estelle's new job continues to be far from easy, and now she is faced the death of a young woman on a motorcycle - a death that could have been caused by improper driving from one of the county's traffic officers when he tried to stop her for speeding. But there is more than meets the eye, Gastner is there to help, but Estelle can go far to cope. This series continues to gain readers, thanks partly to the resurrection of the older books by Poison Penn Press.
