#12 in the Sheriff Dan Rhodes series. It's amazing that laid-back Sheriff Rhodes has lasted this long with his penchant for getting beat-up and knocked-out. This entry which turns on a young reporter's attempt to come up with a big story of corruption by county officials is a quick moving, enjoyable read and an above average series entry.

Dan Rhodes faces accusations of corruption from reporter Jennifer Loam. Loam's source also fingers some of Blacklin County's commissioners. Rhodes clears himsel...more
Sheriff Rhodes' ineptitude is annoying and his ability to endure physical torment (knocked unconscious twice)beggars the imagination. There is little character development besides the 2 irritating oldsters and the rarely mentioned actual deputies are too one dimensional.

Things aren't looking good for a happy July Fourth for Sheriff Dan Rhodes of Blacklin County, Texas. A newspaper reporter has accused him of corruption, the town fireworks display has been cancelled, and the jail's air conditioning is out of order. What more could go wrong? Well, arson for one ... and murder. Throw in extramarital affairs galore and county officials on the take, and things are getting hot. Can Sheriff Rhodes keep his cool? This is the 12th mystery featuring the unflappable Rhode...more

Good mystery set in Texas. The main character, Sheriff Dan Rhodes, is a no nonsense crime solver who uses his instincts rather than crime labs to solve murders. The series has a great cast of characters that assist or detract him in his efforts to solve crimes.
An interesting main character with a self depracating humor that he uses on himself. Likable, interesting twists, set in small town Texas.
Cute, lightweight story that took you into the heart of summer's heat with humor and little tension.
Fun and entertaining a great series
