The Double-A Western Detective Agency, by Steve Hockensmith

I loved the first book in this series, Holmes on the Range, and since then I've liked some and not others.  This book I'm happy to say is in the strong-like category.  In fact it has been so long since I've gotten to enjoy reading about the Amlingmeyer brothers that I'm tempted to say I loved it.  The mystery is only so-so, but as is often the case it is the characters and the banter that is really so enjoyable.  I even read this one through the acknowledgements where Hockensmith credits the inventor of bourbon "for services rendered".

What's not to love?
