    5.

    10. The Sheriff Dan Rhodes mysteries are all low key, slow paced and safe for the whole family as a Christian music radio station likes to call itself They are all set in rural Blacklin County, Texas, and they are all excellent In this one, the air has nothing to do with flying It s about the objections of the residents of Mount Industry, Texas, to the stench emanating from a chicken farm As you might guess, tempers flare and murder is committed But was it really about the factory farming pollution [...]


    11. Full disclosure I hate chickens I have hated chickens since my childhood duty was to gather the eggs Our hen house dirt did not even begin to approach the dirt and stench that Lester Hamilton s chicken factory produced However, it was enough to give me the creepy crawlies Soe denouement in this installment of the Dan Rhodes series was one of the most horrific for me As usual, Mr Crider s ingenuity in creating off beat characters and scenarios swirling around the calm Sheriff Rhodes is totally en [...]




    12. When Lester Hamilton, owner of the local chicken factory farm, is found dead in the pond, people assume is drowned while illegally noodling for catfish That would have been the preferred end Unfortunately, he was murdered and the list of suspects is practically endless as no one liked the man This is the first Dan Rhodes book I have read George Guidall reads and he could make an owners manual sound exciting But while he made the story mildly amusing it wasn t a compelling story and neither were [...]


    13. Dan Rhodes is a laconic Texas lawman out to solve the drowning murder of a factory farming chicken rancher whose operation has polluted the air for miles around Not surprisingly, there are a lot of suspects Rhodes is an interesting character choice Since he is droll and lacking in affect, keeping the reader interested in him is a full time job For the most part, author Bill Crider is a pro who is up to the task He surrounds Rhodes with a cast of colorful people and animals and keeps the plot mov [...]


    14. This was my first Sheriff Rhodes mystery and I had a good time reading it Life in a small town is so different then in a large city and I love when an author can capture the eccentric characters that seem be the spice of country life Bill Crider does an excellent job of this The mystery itself was also well written Suspects are introduced, eliminated and reintroduced enough to keep you guessing I ll absolutely be revisiting Blacklin County, Texas again soon.


    15. I love reading Bill Crider s books, especially the Dan Rhodes books that are set in a town much like Crider s home town of Mexia, Texas which is about 10 miles from my home town The people in the books are very familiar There is also quit a bit of humor in Crider s books I plan to read as many of his books that I can find.


    16. Lots to like here with a downhome, straight shooting sheriff, quirky secondary characters, strong sense of place, and George Guidall reading Somehow it failed to capture my imagination and enthusiasm Laid back and affable hero, rather gentle story, series characters, humor, witty dialogue, and a good mystery Should work for Craig Johnson fans too although I prefer those.




    17. Catfish noodling chicken farmer stinks up Blacklin County, comes up dead Sheriff Dan Rhodes will figure it all out sooner or later.
