Holmes on the Range

HOLMES ON THE RANGE
Steve Hockensmith (St. Martin’s Minotaur, $22.95)

While working on a Montana ranch in 1893, narrator Otto Amlingmeyer plays Watson to his smart but unlettered brother Gustav’s Holmes after two curious deaths.

Mysterious Milieu
One corpse turns up in a privy ”as drafty as a pair of flap-assed underdrawers.”

Final Verdict
As Gustav cowpokes his nose into trouble with his ”detectiving,” the absurdish plot moseys along in Otto’s hilarious, simile-packed voice.
