Two of the Abernathy family had careers as lawmen. One of them, a cowboy from Kansas growing up in the days of Wild Bill Hickok learned the fast draw and started out as a hired gun but became a sheriff and landowner in New Mexico. The second Abernathy lived in modern times and grew up in Canada where he became a detective on the West Vancouver police department and received the famed Hercule Poirot trophy. Inspector Perry Abernathy was elevated to the position of Chief Constable in Nanaimo, a city on Vancouver Island. Both Abernathys, Red the sheriff and Perry the policeman exhibit the traditional family trait, namely a passion for the opposite sex and a love for vodka. The patriarch of the Canadian branch, the Reverend Abernathy sits in heaven and watches over his flock, making the occasional visit to help where he can. This is the fourth book on the Abernathys. They were very prolific and who knows when the stories will end.
