This is the second Spider Latham book and I enjoyed it as much as the first. I truly like the characters and all the problems they have are real life and they get dealt with in a reasonable and matter of fact way. Spider has been the deputy sheriff for 6 month now and he has another dead body. All evidence points to one person and then he confesses but Spider just doesn't believe him and sets off the find the truth.
Second in the Spider Latham Mysteries and I enjoyed it as much as the first. No "romance" just good mystery played country style. Rocky Road, country singer, is dead and Spider, as deputy sheriff, has to investigate. The biggest suspect is Rocky's brother who happens to be an old team mate on Spider's high school championship basketball team.
Although Liz Adair's Spider Latham mysteries will probably never be classics, they are a fun read. This is the second one in the trio. They are about a small-town deputy sheriff in Nevada. In each, Spider has a murder to solve. I like the way small-town life and L.D.S. family life are portrayed. The characters seem real because of their flaws.
