Edgar Award-nominated author Ben Rehder's Blanco County comic mysteries have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. The novels have been optioned by Warner Brothers Horizon Scripted Television for development as a cable TV series.

Life can get a little wild from time to time for John Marlin, the game warden in Blanco County, Texas - but few incidents compare to the stories flying around town at the start of this new deer season. Hunters are reporting an incredible sight: A six-foot-tall, drop-dead gorgeous blonde is roaming the woods, searching out camouflage-clad men with guns and disarming them with powers of seduction the likes of which none of them have ever come across before. Everyone has a hearty laugh at the expense of a few embarrassed hunters, until one of their own turns up dead in the woods. Now Marlin has a real mystery to deal with.

Meanwhile, rumors are spreading about a new Blanco resident, an ex-New Yorker named Sal Mameli who's ruffling feathers with his loud mouth and his penchant for getting his own way, no matter what the cost. Before long, John Marlin realizes he may be the only sane man in town, and he's starting to wonder if he can last much longer himself.

It's just the start of another unforgettable hunting season in Bone Dry, the hilarious second novel from Edgar finalist Ben Rehder.

    " Another entertaining Blanco County mystery! Mr. Rehder's characters are certainly interesting, to say the least. If you like to laugh and you like a mystery where you DON'T know "WHODUNIT" in the first chapter, you have to give Ben Rehder a try! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roberta Marro | 1/4/2014

    " Sound recording. A very funny book and true to the Texas mindset. I'd never heard of Mr. Rehder, but I liked his writing style. I seem to remember reading another in the series, but couldn't find the title. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 8/26/2013

    " Mix a mob guy who's in the witness protection program, a couple of local rednecks, some environmentalists and some local good ole boys in Texas law enforcement and what do you get? A pretty funny story with comic capers and hijinks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosina | 8/19/2013

    " Fun read. some of the plot was a bit unbelievable, but really a fun read: 'humorous mystery'. And enjoyed the Texas references as well. Interesting view of environmental issues, especially for Texas. Author clearly from Austin (smile). Enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 5/30/2013

    " better than the first installment. Still don't consider this on a level with Hiassen. Plot line had some better irony and twists to it than did Buck Fever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 5/21/2013

    " In the second Blanco County Mystery - you have a mobster in the witness protection program/murder in the woods/and a naked female hotty protester. Just another wild adventure in the life of game warden John Marlin. Fun, lighthearted and humorous addition to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma Turner | 5/14/2013

    " A fun read. A comic mystery with lots of action. Will look for more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/14/2013

    " Ben Rehder never fails to give you an enjoyable story. The characters are wonderful and the story line is always a hoot. Loved this book. It kept me up past my bedtime several nights. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 5/12/2013

    " More by my newly discovered Austin author; this one involves the business of clearing cedars in the drought stricken area of Central Tx that houses our property. So once again, interesting to me, and fun to read, but maybe not for those who don't live here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 4/28/2013

    " I really enjoyed listening to this second book. John Marlin is exceptional in his job as game warden and Ben makes him so personable. Red and Billy Don are two very funny characters! Those too crack me up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 3/24/2013

    " Great read. Especially with hunting season startin'. "
