The Blood Knot - The last thing The Dog wanted was to find another body. But there was Annie Adams -- the barn lady -- floating dead at his feet, her easel and paints set up on the bridge above his head. Standing defiantly beside them, a frightened and stubborn nine-year-old -- The Avalanche Kid -- shotgun in hand, dares The Dog, "You saw me hit her. Now go ahead and tell somebody." And so The Dog wades his way through "Kussmaul country", encountering some scandalous paintings, a dispute over trepassing, a shunned Amish woman on meth, and a quite possibly rabid beaver. And The Dog knows, this is not a fishing trip.The Blood Knot is the second installment in the Fly Fishing Mystery Series. Author John Galligan is a native of Madison, Wisconsin.
