Death By Accident - A Dan Rhodes Mysteryby Bill Crider
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Texas Sheriff Dan Rhodes' cases usually concern the bad boys of rural Blacklin County, or the slightly wacky citizens who are causing trouble that tends to be funny rather than criminal. But although at first the dead man floating in the old swimming pool at the edge of town seems to have been an accident victim — a staggering drunk tumbling into the water — Rhodes and his small but colorful staff soon uncover murder. It's the second strange death in two weeks (the other was that of John West, killed when he blew up carrying a gasoline can across a field). But where was the Cherokee wagon John was carrying the gas to? And why is his widow so jaunty? West was a solid citizen; Pep Yeldell, the swimming pool decedent, was a man with many enemies. In his quiet way, Rhodes goes about looking for a connection and a killer — a quest that takes Rhodes, no athlete now in spite of his wife's efforts to keep him on a diet of little meat and lots of greens, up a tree and puts him at the mercy of a vicious killer.

Mediocre. The character names were awkward which didn't allow the book to flow. The plot led the reader to dead-ends before finally wrapping things up at the end of the book. And, the law enforcement characters weren't very believable. The summary and two other reviews are what made me purchase the book but it just didn't have a lot of depth to it and was disapponting.
Super read with unique characters and returning favorites. Humor to appreciate and cause out right laughter.Sheriff Rhodes keeps getting better and better.
First book ive read from this author, will buy others. Enjoyable
