D.R.Meredith's "The Homefront Murders"
I gave this one four stars just out of kindness. It was an OK read, something to clear your head from heavier Historical fiction.
The new Sheriff of Crawford county a foreigner by the local standard looks into the murder of a WWII service man found buried in the County courthouse basement for the past 50 years. With several oddball citizens the investigation wonders around several turns and bends and not to disclose a spoiler ends in a surprising turn of eve

I am a big fan of D. R. Meredith's mystery series.

This series is about a Dallas lawyer, Charles Matthews, who moves to a town in the Texas Panhandle town and is elected sheriff. There are only five books--to date--in the series (and though I wish for more, the last was written in 1995 so I don't think there will be any more). Each contains a separate mystery, but the continuing story of Charles and his friends.

The sheriff is an outsider and so cannot understand why the citizens of Crawford County, Texas won't talk about the body that is found in the basement of the courthouse. The murder happened 50 years ago but no one seems to be missing. Records turn up missing and some of the town's elderly occupants start acting strangely. A nice little book to entertain your mind.
