Overview

This volume features three Cliff Mills novelettes

THE TEN DOLLAR ROOSTERS— If you shoot his roosters, expect trouble!
To keep his family afloat in bad times, Cliff Mills keeps a large flock of chickens in addition to his auto repair shop. He also has to have a couple of very expensive roosters to keep his hens company. One day, bullets start flying through the chicken coop. They barely miss Cliff, but one of them kills one of his expensive roosters, which Cliff thinks is as serious a crime as shooting at him. When he sets out to visit the troublesome neighbor he thinks fired the shots, he finds the neighbor himself is dead, likely by the same gun that did in his rooster. To prove his own innocence, and that of his neighbors—most of whom may have had a good motive—Cliff discovers a trail that only his automobile troubleshooting skills enable him to follow.

SELLING THAT THING— The real trouble was . . . that bullet hole.
After her husband’s death, a grieving widow asks Cliff Mills to sell the car in which her husband died. Not only is it pretty beat up, it lacks all four of its doors. But it has one thing few other cars could claim to have: a bullet hole in the windshield, caused when her husband was shot. When a youth comes forward to take responsibility for the man’s death, Cliff believes the young man innocent. Proving it calls on more than a few of his skills as an auto mechanic.

CLIFF’S FOLLY— Car trouble can be . . . well, a lot of trouble
A flat tire, for example. A wealthy customer leaves one with Cliff Mills to be repaired, and then never returns to claim it. While Cliff waits, he studies the old sedan with the missing doors. It is still parked by his shop because he decided his auto repair business needs a pickup truck, and he thinks the only way he’ll ever get one is to make one out of the old sedan. But a big job like that is the least of his worries. When he looks around for the fellow who didn’t come back, he finds that looking can be downright dangerous.
