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 moving. There were a few times I felt if Rhodes had only asked one or two (somewhat) obvious questions, the book would have been a lot shorter:) But, all in all, it was a good -- not a great -- read.
