Wiebe’s second Gutenthal novel takes the form of a comic “anti-murder mystery. ”“I am Schneppa Knjals. I am the eyes at the back of your head. I see the world in a stepped-in cowpie. I?am a good neighbour for a fee. ” Return to this hilarious fictional southern Manitoba town as Schneppa Kjnals, the gumshoe of Gutenthal, is bedutzed by stolen bras, exploding trailers, contraband bibles, and mysterious Ford LTDs. “Wiebe is able to bring a community and its people vividly, wildly to life. ”—Canadian Literature
