Book #1 in Sheriff Dan Rhodes series.

Book Description:


Peaceful rural life is shattered in Blacklin County, Texas, when Jeanne Clinton is found murdered in her home. Turns out the talkative woman was the late-night confidant of several men in the community, who happened by the house while her husband worked the night shift. Sheriff Dan Rhodes' investigation grows ever more intense when an informant is killed right before his eyes. Rhodes has enough to worry about, what with this being an election year and all. One of his deputies might even be guilty of assaulting citizens at random; and the other candidate for sheriff might have stopped by Jeanne Clinton's house once or twice himself. Widower Rhodes also begins a friendship with widow Ivy Daniels, whom he meets on the election trail. How will it all turn out?

Crider gives us a good foundation for this police procedural mystery series, with enough unique homespun characters in the community to keep readers guessing. The cemetery scene in this book is not to be missed.

My Review: This was really slow to start. I liked the storyline and characters. My pet peeve was that it was told third person narrative. It would have been better told from Sheriff Rhodes perspective. I have the next book in the series, not sure if I'll read it or not.
