If you are a fly fisherman, it doesn’t get any better than the salmon fly hatch on the Deschutes River, Oregon’s legendary trout fishing venue. Cal Claxton–a small town lawyer who works to fish–has to pinch himself when his best friend and fishing guide, Philip Lone Deer, asks him to help guide an upcoming trip with a group of executives from a high-tech firm in Portland.
But the trip through the remote Deschutes River Canyon turns ugly when a member of the fishing party is murdered. Everyone in the party is a suspect, including Cal himself. Does the fact that the company’s value is about to explode play into the crime? And what about the freight line running along the river? All Cal knows is that he better come up with answers because he’s suspect number one….

This is the second Cal Claxton Oregonian Mystery in the series. The first book was titled Matters of Doubt. It is obvious that author Warren Easley loves the beautiful state of Oregon and loves fly fishing. The main story focuses on these aspects and that is where Easley's strengths lie. The Northwest is my home and I love to see that it is realistically portrayed.
Fishing guide Philip Lone Deer has asked his friend, Cal Claxton, who is a former prosecutor but now a small town lawyer to accompany him on a trip to the Deschutes River with some clients from Portland, Oregon. (Cannot read Deschutes without thinking about the Deschutes Brewery but I digress). While on the trip, CEO Hal Bruckner is murdered. Can Cal solve this case in which he is a suspect ... will his past history with Alexis Bruckner fog his powers of deduction. Lots of twists and turns and everyone is a suspect.
Good series. Always like stories about the Northwest. Good mystery!
