About The Book
Osborne's discovery of mysterious footprints confirms Chief Ferris's suspicions: this is no accident; it's murder. Leaning on Doc Osborne for his forensic and interrogation skills, Lew also hopes to enlist the help of Ray Pradt, fishing guide and expert tracker. But Ray's time is limited as he is coaching the University of Wisconsin's fishing team in a muskie fishing tournament. Things get complicated when Doc Osborne's granddaughter disappears on the first day of the tournament. Sunny June days turn dark as a desperate search ensues.

"Charmingly realistic characters…the keeps-you-guessing whodunit that's revealed in the end with a nice flourish... What you love in a mystery is still inside this book, exactly where you want it..." --Naples Daily News
"These quick-paced novels delve into surprisingly complex crimes, and their resolutions are as clever as they are original... This continues to be a reliably enjoyable mystery series with genuinely likable characters and ingenious plot twists." --Kings River Life Magazine
"In Lewellyn Ferris, Houston has created the kind of charismatic, assured character that a strong series can be built on. She is no shrinking violet; she makes sure that everyone knows who is in charge. She is an expert fly-fisher who knows what she is doing with a rod, and she is a professional police chief who knows what she is doing with a murder investigation. Dead Loudmouth has her working at her competent best." --Blog Critics
