    1. My review of this book is mainly to warn listeners of the Books in Motion audio version, read by Stephanie Brush. The story itself is another good one by Steven Havill. It turns away from Bill Gastner as the main character (first person account as written in the first 9 books of the Posadas mysteries), and appropriately focuses on following the actions, thoughts and involvements of Estelle Reyes-Guzman after Gastner's retirement.Readers may continue to enjoy Havill's unusual mysteries, but this [...]


    2. Well, I've discovered another good author. Of course, a lot of this series is going to be hard to find because they were written at least 15 years ago. Good characters, good writing. Looking forward to finding the other books.


    3. Finished 04/26/2014. Estelle Reyes-Guzman is now undersheriff in Posadas County & Roberto Torrez is sheriff. Bill Gastner is a livestock inspector. E RG has been working on an insurance fraud case headed to the grand jury. While she is testifying to the gj, the defendant is found shot to death in his office. He had called the DA earlier & said "I can give you Guzman". Turns out a group of CoC members have been running false & illegal [...]


    4. 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 [...]


    5. #10 in the Posadas County series.Posadas County mystery - The new undersheriff proves to be as engaging and as effective as her predecessor. Sometimes everything seems to happen at once: popular insurance salesman George Enriquez faces a grand jury indictment for fraud, a village patrolman is embroiled in a messy domestic situation and Estelle finds criminal activity striking too close to her own family.


    6. Posadas County Book #2. Another excellent murder mystery from this author. Set in fictional county in New Mexico. Fast-paced and kept me guessing until the end. Involves a motorcyclist who dies after being pursued by a police officer. There's also what appears at first to be a suicide. My only small quibble is that it didn't tie up all the loose ends, to my satisfaction, on one of the deaths. But I continue to be a huge fan of this author.Copyright 3003 and 2011.


    7. 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.


    8. The series that started with Bill Gastner is continuing with the same quality of writing and engaging characters. In spite of all that's going wrong in Posadas County, New Mexico is still high on my list of places to retire


    9. A very unsatisfying story with too much repetitive detail and time sequences that were out of sync. Makes me quite suspect of the publisher's editing staff.


    10. 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.


    11. I appreciate Havill's perspective/input on the mix-up in teaching, law enforcement and cultures set in his fictious New Mexico county the borders Mexico.


    12. enjoy this series. will have to find another soon as I am nearly finished with this excellent series.
