Item description for Cow Cookies by F. Button C....
Title: Cow Cookies Subtitle: A Modern Western Mystery Novel When a local environmentalist turns up dead in a remote piece of eastern Oregon desert and cut fences lure livestock to a water-less trap not far away, the conclusion is obvious. But small town rumors and disparate clues lead a BLM wildlife biologist to look beyond the obvious. With a roguish sense of human frailty and dishonesty developed through constant practice, Tom Kreuger seeks the clues to bind rumor, speculation, and careful observation of arcane evidence. Unfortunately, his penchant for blundering headlong after unsolved riddles leads him directly to a clever and dangerous criminal. The dance of deception becomes a battle of will, endurance, and luck. About the Author: Clair Button currently works as a botanist in eastern Oregon. A 25-year veteran of the Sagebrush Rebellion, his writing bears witness to the political, social, and environmental changes of the western states from the perspective of a field biologist dodging the crossfire of competing public interests and agency imperatives while doing a job he still loves.

Cow Cookies - A Good Yarn Feb 4, 2006
C F Button's first novel is a western of the "new West". After an opening that I found somewhat tedious, "Cow Cookies" quickly begins to flow smoothly and is well paced. While I found both the hero and the villain predictably somewhat larger than life, the remaining characters and their interactions are believable and entertaining. Those who have worked for the Bureau of Land Management, or probably any other bureaucracy, may find themselves as entertained by attempting to associate the characters with people they have known as by the plot itself. Liberal use of satire throughout tends to make up for any weak areas in plot development, and the ending is just anti-climactic enough to leave the reader both satisfied and expecting a sequel. If you like Zane Grey blended with a bit of S. Omar Barker, then I think that you will find "Cow Cookies" well worth reading. For me, it was a "two sittings" book, and I read slowly due to low vision.
