“Sherlock Holmes once said to his partner that, "It is my belief, Watson, founded upon my experience, that the lowest and vilest alleys in London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.” For cops who work rural or small town beats, this is not just a theoretical belief, but a hard fact they live with every working day, a fact well-known to one-time Wright County, MN, Deputy Sheriff Christine Husom, and to her superb character, Sgt. Corky Aleckson of fictional Winnebago County. In Firesetter in Blackwood Township, Corky's juggling multiple problems, a serial arsonist burning down barns in particular township of her county, a female stalker who has a "fatal attraction" to one of the deputies, and her mom's romantic problems with her boss, the County Sheriff.
