Ivan Doig has been one of my favorite writers. He tried to be funny in this one. He isn't funny.

Morrie Morgan and new wife Grace are back in Butte, living in the Sandison mansion and with Morrie at work on the labor-supportive newspaper, the Thunder. Labor shenanigans drive the plot of this tale with lots of verbal skirmishes from Morrie, the editorial writer.

I like the characters in this now third book with Morrie center stage. This one fell a little short for me with all the old-time news writing, although there?s much to love with the literary references between Morrie and the book-loving library director Sandison. Doig knows and loves the West; so do I.
