    Another of Crump's best books. In my opinion he excels with the clever, hardy, rural characters - hunters or farmers generally, and this book set in Merino country in the lower South Island is a great little book. Like all of Crumps work, the books are short, and very readable. There is no complexity in the writing, but plenty of twists and cleverness in the story.
