Murder in Mushroom Valley is set in central Utah in a place currently known as Goblin Valley. It’s a place where Mother Nature must have gone insane because the landscape is filled with bizarre rock formations in the form of hoodoos and gargoyles. It was there that our heroine is attacked by an Apache raiding party and her beloved husband is killed. From there Amanda meets up with Bryan Kohler, a bounty hunter known as Kid Utah because of his skill with a Colt .45. Bryan and Amanda form a bond to seek out and kill the hated Apaches but at first it isn’t an easy relationship because they are like vinegar and oil. Regardless they set out on an extraordinary journey of reprisal that takes them down through Utah’s beautiful central desert and into the hauntingly beautiful red rock country of southeastern Utah. All of Scotty V. Casper’s Westerns are set in Utah.

The story of Murder in the Mushroom Valley is what I would define as the perfect western novel and a classic western tale. I love western novels and movies and speaking of movies… why is Murder in the Mushroom Valley not one?! The book has the perfect components of a story adapted for the screen and now that I think about it, the story reminds me of a recent movie with Chrisitan Bale called Hostiles. Hostiles is about a woman whose whole family is murdered by an Apache tribe and she teams up with an Army officer to hunt them down. The story and this movie have many differences but what is not different is a steady, streamlined plot, enthralling characters with perfect narration and dramatic breathe-taking moments that will move its readers in more way than one.
