A Fort Worth detective finds contentment as a small-town police chief.
Orin Cage left a 15-year career with the Fort Worth PD to become Chief of Police in the small North Texas town of Rather. Glad to have escaped the high-pressure of the Metroplex crime scene, Cage takes a laid-back, but still effective, approach law enforcement.
The six stories in this volume:
* "By a Nose" (inept double-crossing crooks)
* "Give Him a Hand" (it was just a magic act, right?)
* "A Quiet Sunday" (that turned out not quite so quiet, after all)
* "Lady in Distress" (she didn't appreciate the help)
* "Out of Control" (nobody's kid is immune)
* "Have Another Drink" (but be careful whom you stick it to in business)

"Written with the pace of a thriller, 'Devil in the North Woods' is a grim but fascinating read, building a bonfire of the dusty pages of history." - from a review of Walt Shiel's 'Devil in the North Woods' novel in Northern Express Weekly
