    I really enjoyed this mystery. It has a sort of (Robert B. Parker ) Jesse Stone vibe to it. Easy to read page-turner.

    Former sheriff Ray Pacheco, now retired, has decided to take up fishing to pass the time. Ignorant of the activity, he seeks help, and finds it in the guise of Big Jack, a bait shop owner and sometimes philosopher, and Tyee Chino, an Apache fishing guide who is drunk most of the time. Around the same time, a show dog shows up at Ray’s house, but its owner is missing. Anxious to return the dog to its owner, he goes looking for the missing woman. When corpses start turning up, Ray realizes that th Former sheriff Ray Pacheco, now retired, has decided to take up fishing to pass the time. Ignorant of the activity, he seeks help, and finds it in the guise of Big Jack, a bait shop owner and sometimes philosopher, and Tyee Chino, an Apache fishing guide who is drunk most of the time. Around the same time, a show dog shows up at Ray’s house, but its owner is missing. Anxious to return the dog to its owner, he goes looking for the missing woman. When corpses start turning up, Ray realizes that this is more than a simple missing persons case, and he enlists Big Jack and Chino in a quest that pits him against the local sheriff, the mayor, and the FBI. Dog Gone Lies by Ted Clifton is the first book in a new series, but the character, Ray Pacheco was first introduced in an earlier book, when he helped bring down a crooked sheriff, so in actuality, this is a second book—but, let’s not quibble. The interplay between and among the characters, especially Ray, Chino, and Big Jack, and the subtle dance that goes on between Ray and Sue, a waitress at his favorite diner stand out for me as undeniably the best parts of the book. The action’s not bad, and Bruce, or Happy, as Ray calls him, even though he’s just a dog, is a scene stealer. Small-town law enforcement and small-town culture form the backdrop for what promises to be an interesting series.

    Great read! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and well developed. I am impressed by the well researched information that kept me engrossed in the storyline. A retired sheriff , a couple of distintive buddies, s, a missing woman, a town steeped in corruption, intrigue and the best addition... a dog who fits right in. I am anxious to pick up the next books in this series... give this book a chance to wisk you away on an exciting adventure.

    This book has some interesting characters and an engaging storyline. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy either because the writing is SO bad. It seems to be mostly written in stream of consciousness, which I usually find interesting. But not for multiple-character exposition scenes. Get some beta readers and an editor, learn to write dialogue and active voice. Then maybe I'll be able to finish your book.

    Thrilling A retired sheriff decides to settle in a backwoods cabin in a neighboring county. He soon becomes involved in a missing persons case after a dog shows up in his yard. Before he's through, he and a couple of friends decide to start a PI company. Looking forward to other books in the series.

    Interesting read I liked this book with its well-developed characters involved in a storyline with enough plot twists to keep you guessing right up until the end. No sex, not a lot of violence.

    2 stars Stilted conversations, can't see a sheriff saying or doing much of what happens in this book. Probably won't read others

    Retirement in New Mexico Thank you for this interesting and exciting mystery story. I enjoyed the different characters and the suspense of the involvement of Ray, Tyee, Big Jack and their relationships. I liked the whole storyline from the beginning to the end. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    I won this book from Goodreads for my honest opinion. The literary recipe for “Dog Gone Lies” • Start with large helping of county sheriff “Walt Longmire” (by Craig Johnson). • Add in a healthy dose of wit and wisdom from “Spenser” (by Robert B. Parker). • Sprinkle it generously over “The Posadas County Mysteries” (by Steven F. Havill). Voila! Pachinco & Chino springs to life!

Parker). • Sprinkle it generously over “The Posadas County Mysteries” (by Steven F. Havill). Voila! Pachinco & Chino springs to life! Obviously reading Dog Gone Lies flashed back memories of other remarkable characters I’ve enjoyed. Sheriff Ray Pacheco reminded me of the honest, plain-speaking lawman Walt Longmire. His relationship with Tyee Chino and Big Jack made me remember the colorful banter between Spenser and Hawk. The small-town New Mexico setting brought back images of The Posadas County Mysteries. Sometimes you can blend wonderful, well-loved stories together and create a new, fresh flavor. Please don’t confuse my fertile imagination with Ted Clifton’s new creation. This book is a wonderful and original read! But writing, like music, is often a process of rethinking old ideas, or melodies, and giving them a new perspective. I finished this book faster than I can remember reading a book. I loved the characters, the plot, and the New Mexico background (maybe because I lived there long ago…) But, none-the-less, I loved it! It’s filled with mystery, romance, drama, danger, small town color, and a super hero dog! I am anxiously awaiting his next Pachinco and Chino novel … Sky High Stakes. I Can’t Wait!!

    I'm gonna flip the ol' Summer-Read switch on this one. Not too heavy, not too light, not too challenging...just entertaining, in a nice setting, with nice characters, etc. Oh, and typos galore, but it's an indie author so I'm not surprised (sorry, folks, but you deserve some ribbing about your typos. It's like you all agreed to let them happen or something). If I have one complaint, it's that the story gets really ragged and frantic near the middle and continues to be ragged and frantic until the I'm gonna flip the ol' Summer-Read switch on this one.

If I have one complaint, it's that the story gets really ragged and frantic near the middle and continues to be ragged and frantic until the end. Perhaps page counts got in the way and some content needed to be removed, requiring leaps in the story that IMO weren't explained or justified. Not a big deal, it's a summer-read so it gets a pass. I can't justify 4 stars here because of all the other non-summer-reads that surpass this book but got 4 stars. Let's say 3.5 stars. Really, it's a decent book. Not a Pulitzer winner, but it does the job. Sometimes that's all that's required. I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I honestly thought the fishing competition should have gone differently. Oh well.

    Let me say I loved this book! This is my first read by Ted Clifton and he has reeled me in for more! This book is very thorough with the characters and their story, there are many twists and turns leading up to the plot and even leaves you wanting more when you are done! It seemed as if I was reading a mystery, thriller, love story, and a heroic tale! I highly recommend this read if you are looking for a different type of read for the happy ending!

    This was a fun little read. The mystery in the story wasn't that complex but the atmosphere was so laid back that it fit. I liked the characters. I picked up a free copy of The Bootlegger's Legacy to learn more about Ray Pacheco. It will be interesting to see how well they work together in future books. I received a free copy of this book through the First Reads program.

    Good story but the dog wasn't really all that important but the detective stuff was great I liked this book and look forward to reading more of them. Wen I am willing to pay real money for a book in Kindle I am impressed.

    I'm not a prude, but the swearing was so over-the-top, it kept jarring me out of the story. I had to give up on this one.
