A Death in the Hills

A Novel By

Paul A. Barra

A Bosco Action Mystery


George Bosco has it good: a pension from the NYPD, a ranch nestled into the Black Hills, a job teaching his favorite discipline and the woman he has loved for as long as he can remember. And he’s healthy- until he runs up against Borden Cantrell, the Bully of Quickwater.

The two meet again at high noon on a hot Summer day, but things get pear-shaped during that confrontation. One of the many people Cantrell has terrorized over the years becomes a murderer and Bosco has to identify and arrest him. No one is talking, however,  so he has to overcome a conspiracy of silence.


Bosco’s investigation uncovers secrets and intrigues in the lands of the Lakota, from the gaming industry in Deadwood to greenie activists to the private affairs of ranchers and townspeople of the Hills. It all comes crashing to an end during a dramatic denouement in an animal sanctuary.

Given the choice between the secular fundamentalism of public schools and the watered-down bashful Catholicism of today's parochial schools, it's no surprise that more families are turning to alternative means for educating their children in the Faith. However, neither the government nor Catholic archdioceses are willing to cede their control over education, and thus have implemented their own measures to prevent families from taking the matter into their own hands. St. Joe's is a real-life story of a group of parents, who after many obstacles, were finally able to control their kid's education by forming their own Catholic high school under the local archdiocese. "St. Joe's Remarkable Journey is truly a remarkable book. Bravo Paul Barra! Bravo St. Joe's!" - Joseph Pearce, Editor of St. Austin Review
