If outdoor literature has its cult novel, Blood Sport is it. Robert Jones has created a new world, in which a mythical river and wilderness become the setting for a father and son journey like no other. In one of the earliest examples of magical realism in an American novel, Jones takes readers deep into the heart of darkness. The intensity, the suspense, and the mind-bending adventure still place Blood Sport in a category all its own.

The police called it an accident. The dead man's wife insisted it was murder. Either way it was maddeningly mysterious. Captain Harold Jeffries, swaddled in his robe, had settled down for a cozy evening with Crime and Punishment when his wife left the house for a bridge party. An hour later he was dead. What could have induced him to dress and go out into the stormy night - much less to walk on the beach, which he hated and never went near? Conan Flagg, proprietor of the Holliday Beach Bookshop and Rental Library, is persuaded by Jeffries' widow to investigate privately; and astonishingly, all the clues lead to Flagg's own Dickensian establishment. With passing assistance from Meg, the bookstore cat, Flagg baits a trap to catch a rat - and finds himself dangerously involved in a crime with implications far beyond this lazy seaside village.

The celebrated author Ravin Gould, his equally celebrated actress wife, the media, the locals, and as many tourists as can cram themselves into Conan Flagg's bookstore are all on hand for that electric moment when Cady MacGill, the sheriff's son-in-law, threatens to cut off a vital portion of Gould's anatomy with a chain saw. Less than 24 hours later, Ravin Gould is dead, and Cady MacGill has been charged with his murder. But bookstore owner and private investigator Conan Flagg doesn't read the situation that way. Not with an election for sheriff coming up. Not when a covey of hotshot New York publishing executives wings into town, lured to the quiet Oregon beach resort by word of the tell-all autobiographical novel that Gould had just finished writing.

Who killed darlin' Corey? In the sixth novel in the Conan Flagg series, the Oregon detective is investigating the mysterious, untimely death of his friend Corey Benbow. It seemed to Flagg that the police were asking too few questions about the fatal automobile accident that claimed the young woman's life - especially since it was common knowledge in the town of Holiday Beach that more than one person stood to gain from her death. It wasn't long before Flagg began unraveling motive and opportunity to disprove the verdict of accidental death in the case... and, in a chilling re-creation of the crime, to demand equal justice for the deadly conspiracy of silence that murdered Corey Benbow.

"I'll be on your patio at four o'clock. If you aren't there, I'll understand...." This is the gist of the mysterious plea for help that Conan Flagg finds lying on the counter of his Holliday Beach Book Shop. The writer is beautiful Isadora Canfield, a concert pianist and daughter of the late Oregon Senator John Canfield, in whose will she would become a millionairess. Isadora wants Conan to find out who is keeping her under 24-hour surveillance, but she becomes strangely quiet when asked for details of her father's death and of how she had spent the weeks following. In fact she is disinclined to talk about the family at all - not her blind stepmother or her irrepressible stepbrother or her sadly altered stepsister, Jenny, who had once been a promising artist. Conan soon realizes that he and his gifted client are sitting on dynamite. He thinks he knows who has the matches, but he can't be sure. And proving it, is dangerous work, even for a pro like Flagg.
