Quotes & Awards

  • The Royal Wulff Murders hit all my buttons: mystery, fly-fishing, Montana, the Madison River, beautiful women, and whole pickup loads of authentic Montana characters, many of them wonderfully quirky. Keith McCafferty is one terrific writer.”

    Patrick F. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw

  • “Thoroughly entertaining…McCafferty blends plenty of fly-fishing lore (the Royal Wulff is a lure) with a host of intriguing characters…The vivid Montana setting is a plus.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “McCafferty’s superb outdoor writing (not surprising for an editor at Field & Stream magazine) feels like an academic mystery thanks to a complex research topic.”

    Library Journal

  • “A fish story with a homicidal hook…An entertaining debut.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " Sam Meslik, a fishing guide, discovers a body in the Missouri River while out with a client one afternoon. Sean Stranahan is a artist who fled a broken marriage in Vermont in order to paint and fish in Montana. Now he paints at the Bridger Mountain Cultural Center and lives out of his Land Cruiser, trying to survive. On the door of his studio, he claims to be a private investigator, which he was, back in Massachusetts. A beautiful woman walks into his studio a few days after Sam finds the body and Sean is hooked, line and sinker. Vareda Beaudreaux wants Sean to find the place on the river where her father fished; together, they find out the body was Vareda's brother. Sean and Vareda want to find out why Jerry was killed and what it has to do with a fish hatchery and whirling disease, a disease that infects fingerling trout and kills them, decimating native trout populations. This was an interesting book and I learned a lot about fly fishing and fish biology than I ever really wanted to know, but it was quite entertaining. "

    " The Royal Wulff is a fly--that is used in fly fishing...and for those that enjoy fly fishing, this book is definitely for them. For those of us who don't fish at all, the mystery and rest of the story is enjoyable...but sometimes the fishing talk lost me. "

    " A little too predictable. Overall, it was ok but the end was a little flat. "

    " This book was only okay for me. It started to drag in the middle, and much as I wanted to finish it, I did not. 3 stars because of an entertaining concept and generally likable characters. "
