At the beginning of Mammoth Drop: Murder, Mammoths and Mimosa by R.J. Corgan, Dr. Kea Wright has just arrived in Rapid City, South Dakota. She was invited by her mentor, Harry, to see his discovery at Mammoth Drop Caverns. There is a gigantic cavern filled with at least 30 species of woolly mammoths.
Kea is a geologist who specializes in the study of glaciers and volcanoes. In the previous books in the Kea Wright mysteries, she helped to solve a murder or two. She met Carter during The Meerkat Murders. He has been helping Harry at the Mammoth Drop and convinced Kea to visit. Harry wants her to help with maintaining the excavating process even when he is too old.
While she is in town, Harry made arrangements for Kea to stay at the Woolly Hole, a Gay campground complete with a lake, a restaurant and a drag queen named Ms. Marine Layer. The Woolly Hole sounds like Heaven on Earth. I’m not a fan of primitive camping but this sounds more like glamping which is more than acceptable.
None of them knew that Kea and Carter would be reuniting to solve Harry’s murder. I won’t tell you who did it. However, I can tell you that I enjoyed reading about Kea and Carter digging around to find the killer.
Mammoth Drop Recommendation
If you are a fan of geology and murder mysteries, then Mammoth Drop should be added to your TBR.
If you have something against science, drag queens or mimosas, then you’re missing out on a really interesting mystery.
