I know when I pick up a mystery novel by Brian M. Wiprud that I'm in for a good and amusing read. His newest book, Tailed, is no exception.

Garth Carson has added the role of appraising taxidermy collections for insurance purposes to his business of renting stuffed animals. As big-time collectors are being killed off sent to that big hunting ground in the sky by their own kills - Garth realizes that the four men who have already died have a connection to him. A remote connection, but a connection nonetheless.

Is he the next on the murderer's list? And why? This romp heads for the southwest and involves his long-time live-in girlfriend, his brother (or maybe not his brother), his nudist mother, his possible uncle, a shaman, a dog with designs on Garth's fingers, the FBI and Army Intelligence and, oh yes, an obsolete army half-track.

Did I leave anything out? Probably. It's a wonderful plot with many side trails, and characters you won't soon forget. All of this with the majesty of the terrain of the southwest. Tailed is a good book.
