Dan Rhodes, the sheriff of Blacklin County, Texas, has seen more than his share of strange events during his time in office-most recently he exorcised a ghost from the county jail and he has always tolerated the banter between his elderly jailer and dispatcher.

#11 in the Sheriff Dan Rhodes. Small (as in tiny) town, Texas sheriff Rhodes doesn't think much of forensics; he places his belief in finding out things by wandering around asking questions. Down home humor and witty byplay with his dispatcher and jailor enliven the series.

Still loving this series!

Sheriff Dan Rhodes's wife assures him that everyone wants to write a book, and from the interest in the writer's conference in his little county, it sure looks that way. But when one of the aspiring writer's dies suddenly, it brings out the nastier side of publishing too. And then there's the other little quirks of rural Texas life - the Peeping Toms, the break ins, the mysterious lights at
the funeral home. Fun story.

A Sheriff Dan Rhodes mystery set in a small rural Texas county. Rhodes finds himself investigating two deaths at a romance writers conference held in his county. He finds himself in the middle of rivalries and jealousies among the writers which helps to muddy his murder investigation.

These mysteries tend to be on the light side with the usual near death scrapes, some humor as Rhodes gives the impression of muddling through things.

I always most put the book back because of the cover - a sexy man holding a sexy girl like on romance novels. The cover had to do with the book being set at a writing covention of romance writers. It's a Sheriff Dan Rhodes mystery. OK but not the best. The best part no language or gore!!

How could I have ever be afraid of someone who writes about smoking a finger soaked in embalming fluid? This is a great book to read if you just want to escape from the craziness going on in the real world!

Crider taught for years at our little college here. I realized recently that I'd never read one of his mysteries!
