Willowtree is a murder mystery, and Mike Bove's first book. Hopefully, it will be the first in a series featuring author Mike Bove's alter ego Bruce DelReno, both retired postal workers and ardent golfers.
Bruce, as a character, seems like a mix of Larry David and Lew Archer. He just keeps pushing on, especially when not wanted, and unwinds the sins of the past that keep interfering with the present.
Bruce surrounds himself with an interesting group of supporting players that will allow author Mike Bove to make Willowtree the Cabot Cove of Arizona.
