Big Fracking Mess by Lee Atterbury

“Keeps you guessing until the very end.”

Jim Taylor and Buck Book 4

Contract Killers. Hitmen. And one fracking operation. All have something to hide at all costs. Jim Taylor, Buck and Hook have their hands full. Are they the sheriff's death squad? Relentless contract killers hired to kill a child...hitmen sent to silence them.

Born on the East Coast, Lee grew up in Wisconsin, where his parents published a weekly newspaper. He operated a linotype and a letter press from age ten onwards. In 1970, Lee graduated from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, with an honors thesis on Aristotle. He then became a motorcycle bum until he entered law school at the University of Wisconsin. From 1974, he has practiced plaintiff’s personal injury, handling a wide variety of product liability, construction site, and motor vehicle cases. For his legal resume, see

Lee is an avid reader. His tastes include history, mysteries and crime novels, science fiction, and historical fiction. Some of his favorite authors are: John Sanford, Lee Child, Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, Robert Galbraith, and Kate Atkinson. Horses and writing consume his free time, but he remains interested in his former pursuits: flying and Tae Kwon Do.

My Review
The fourth book in Lee Atterbury's series, "Big Fracking Mess" takes you into the back country for suspense, mystery, and murder. The horses are a main part of the story-line, the author brings the horses' emotions and thoughts into scenarios... "Buck now was able to smell the blood coming from this man. Blood was bad, he had to find a safe place for this man." Buck being the horse, of course. Other main characters are dynamic; some with ulterior motives, others just trying to stay alive. The gap between the bad guys and good guys makes "Big Fracking Mess" a true Western. The plot will keep you guessing until the very end.
