Features of Thunder Horse PDF By Peter Bowen
Usually it takes more than one beer to make the Toussaint Saloon shake. When the earthquake hits, part-time deputy Gabriel Du Pré and his friends are lamenting the fishing resort a Japanese firm has planned for their small town. The floor trembles, the lights go out, and glass rains from the walls. When they emerge from the bar, they see a new landscape. Roads are mangled, mountains have shifted, and the spring where the Japanese businessmen had planned to build their resort is no more. In its place is an uprooted Indian burial ground—and a massive headache for Du Pré. Thunder Horse PDF By Peter Bowen
As local Native American tribes fight over the ancient remains, a fossilized Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth is found in the hands of a murdered anthropologist. Du Pré had just wanted a beer. Instead he found a murder sixty-five million years in the making.

A bit gimmicky and not as strong as I had hoped for

The term “Thunder Horse” never really felt like it was a real part of the story, rather a device. Otherwise, this was a pretty typical Montana mystery in terms of quality.
It is hard to decide how to review these Gabe Du Pre mysteries. Gabe and everyone else around him seems to live a life of “eat-more-beef,” “drink whiskey while driving,” and drive well above the speed limit. It is at once a simpler lifestyle and a thumb in the eye of authority of all kinds. Californians and environmentalists are the ill-informed and despicable enemies and Gabe, who works as a brand inspector, has a life in which he always has enough money (about which he cares not at all) and plenty of time (about which he cares a lot).
I’ve read nine of these guys and they read very fast. They are formulaic and repetitious across books. The mysteries themselves are interesting, but not overly complicated. I cannot explain why I have read them one, after the other, like eating potato chips. I can tell you that the ninth one was the point when I knew I was done. These books just aren’t quite good enough.
These are like much weaker versions of Tony Hillman novels. There the protagonists seem to have deeper values and beliefs and the mysteries are more interesting and complex.
So, I have given most books of the nine books in the series that I have read a three-star rating, with just a couple getting a two-star rating because they had weaker plots or characters.
I wanted it to end.

Du Pre lives in eastern Montana. There is very little there except a few towns with a bar and assorted characters. I take it Du Pre moved from cajun country, and it’s written to save the syntax…..which makes reading very difficult. Mostly, the band of misfits drinks, rolls their own tobacco, and tries to stay out of blizzards.
One day they find a body near a stolen snowmobile, shot. Stranger in town.
The plot involves a tribe of native Americans who came here on the river. Also found are a few bones from a T-Rex.
It’s long, tedious, and unless you enjoy reading sentences with the words out of order, I’d say, move on.
“I finish.” said Du Pre as he howled.
Average at best, which is a disappointment

A bit of a letdown in this series. After 4 books it feels as if the author has hit a bit a wall in this book. We have our well known characters, and a plot that includes T-Rex, earthquakes, Japanese buyers of land for trout farms, and the list goes on. All the elements are there for a good book but the plot just goes nowhere, the ending is convoluted and it just did not seem overly realistic. Anyhow, I still like the series and will move on to Book 6 in the near future.
Not my cup of tea

I finished the book thinking it would get better. It didn’t. The dialect was difficult to read but better by the end as I got used to it. Hard to follow story line and so many drunks. It did give pause to think about Dinosaurs and uranium in Montana, long before Montana was developed as we know it. I would not read another book in this series. Just not for me. Better books have represented the native America culture.
Always great reads

At least I’ve never read a bad Peter Bowen novel. DuPre is sort of a metis Columbo, seems to fumble around but gets the truth
Difficult to read, jerky continuity

I found the author’s desire to use the native Indian’s dialect not only difficult to read but also difficult to understand. Finally gave up on finishing this book as trying to read this novel was a struggle. I read for enjoyment, not to instill frustration.
Another great adventure

Peter Bowen writes fantastic mysteries that inform as well as entertain. In this installment, Du Pre is called to the scene for a dead body. From there we have a T-Rex tooth, and the remains of white people dated at 17,000 years in the past. Secret locations and layers of mystery confound Du Pre. A totally engaging and delightful series.
