Televangelist Peter Boothe's plans to build a mega-church on the banks of the Pedernales River are threatened when backhoe operator Hollis Farley unearths a dinosaur fossil on the site, but when Farley turns up dead, Game Warden John Marlin joins the investigation and discovers a host of suspects, including a bitter geology professor, a fossil collector, and the minister's wife. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

When televangelist Peter Boothe decides to build a megachurch on the banks of the Pedernales River, he thinks his biggest problem will be a few unhappy neighbors. However, when backhoe operator Hollis Farley unearths a rare fossil on the construction site---a discovery that could lead to plenty of embarrassing Darwinian publicity---the cover-up begins. Soon, Farley is dead, shot in the back with an arrow, and Game Warden John Marlin is asked to help with the case.

What he and the local deputies find is a suspect list of biblical proportions: Could it have been the bitter geology professor? The private fossil collector with a somewhat unusual fetish? The minister’s wife who takes the Commandments rather lightly? Or the geriatric environmentalist with a mean right hook? Nothing is sacred in Rehder’s most laughable satire yet, a twisted tale of greed, corruption, infidelity, and, yes, paleontology.

Lots of funny characters and witty remarks that skewer some of our public figures. The good guys win in spite of themselves, and the bad guys.....well you'll see.
