Because 1893 is a tough year in Montana, any job is a good job. When Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as ranch hands at the secretive Bar VR cattle spread, they’re not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a comfortable campfire around which they can enjoy their favorite pastime: scouring Harper’s Weekly for stories about the famous Sherlock Holmes. 

When the boys come across a dead body that looks a whole lot like the leftovers of an unfortunate encounter with a cattle stampede, Old Red sees the perfect opportunity to employ his Holmes-inspired deducifyin’ skills. Putting his ranch work squarely on the back burner, he sets out to solve the case. Big Red, like it or not (and mostly he does not), is along for the wild ride in this clever, compelling, and completely one-of-a-kind mystery.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Skillful plotting and characterization augur well for the sequel.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This is a great reworking of the Holmes conceit, and one suspects Hockensmith will have a steady readership as long as the Amlingmeyers are on the case.”

    " This is, I believe, the fifth in the Holmes on the Range series, and if you enjoy fun whodunits, I recommend you get on board. Steve is a great guy and a fun, clever writer. My husband is his #1 fan. If you doubt me, check out Steve's web page. And once again Bob is mentioned in the acknowledgements for this book. "

    " This is book 5 in a series. I've really enjoyed the series. This one I liked but not as much as previous installments. Not sure why. "

    " Another entertaining book in the Holmes on the Range series, it was an entertaining "read" to listen to in the car. The Amlingmeyer brothers tackle a mystery at the 1893 Chicago exposition! My only complaint was that the gentleman doing the reading sometimes verged on the cartoonish with some of his character voices. "
