Everybody wants Homer Grimstead's land. Unfortunately, someone was willing to kill for it. The Otter Tail Bird Watching and Conservation Society, or the O.T.B.W.A.C.S., wants to protect and watch birds on Homer s land. The bird in question is the T. phasianellus campestris, a.k.a. the prairie chicken. Fergus Falls Fin and Feather Club, or the F.F.F.F., however, has a different plan in mind. They want to acquire the land with the intent to hunt the prairie chickens. To the Western Minnesota Farmers Energy Cooperative, however, that same piece of real estate is a perfect combination of location and resources for a state-of-the-art, $80,000,000 ethanol plant. When hunting, bird watching, and business collide, somebody is bound to get hurt . . . and someone does. A dead body is found underneath the giant prairie chicken in Rothsay. Now that complicates things.
This is the third book in series featuring the intrepid Palmer Knutson, sheriff of Otter Tail County, Minnesota.
