Death and the Good Life. A Mystery.
by Hugo, Richard.
A Near Fine copy with slightly bumped corner in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket with sunning to the spine. This copy is signed by Hugo. The Northwest poet's only novel. Al Barnes is a good but admittedly mushy hearted homicide cop who trades his stressful Seattle beat for a small-town deputy's life in rural Montana. The peace is disrupted when a local fisherman and a mill owner are found gruesomely axed. Barnes is drawn into a twenty-year-old unsolved case near Portland, adding to an already puzzling search through murky secrets and sweeping him up in the decadent -good life- of his suspects.
