The Case of the Tough-Talking Turkey ~ Claudia Bishop

It is Doc McKenzie's second mystery. The Case Book ventures into turkey farm country.Veterinarian Austin McKenzie and pack set out to solve the murder of Lewis O’Leary, owner of one of the most enormous turkey farms in the Northeast.Lewis O’Leary is insolent, irascible, and as scurrilous as they come.Despised by all including his three sons and two daughters-in-law.It appears all the evidence points to the local feed salesman, Gil Finnegan, whom Lewis has blamed of shorting his feed orders.However, Dr. McKenzie believes that the evidence is too rehearsed; thus he begins noticing Lewis O’Leary’s legion of enemies.First of all there is the greedy family who stand to inherit, the post doctorate student who needs him to sign off on the data from a study that he has been doing on the farm and the animal rights activist who is determined to shut him down.The characters are endearing and the animals being cared for and respected make this a pleasurable read. A delightful series.
