The dentist soon goes missing. Dan Rhodes sheriff of Blacklin County Texas is called by the dentist's wife to find her husband. The missing dentist had told his wife that he was going to go collect back rent from several renters.

I have read three Dan Rhodes books now and have enjoyed them all. This book was a fast read for me as it held my attention. I like the series because I like the character Sheriff Dan Rhodes. He likes his ice cold bottled Doctor Pepper. He likes to make cold cut sandwiches at home and watch old movies. He solves crimes by talking to people and using his instinct. Even if high technology would have been available at the time this book was written, I feel that Sheriff Rhodes would still prefer to grind it out-talking to people and following his own instincts on human behavior. He is also in a quandary as he is "almost" engaged. It was an entertaining and interesting read.

I have read all four of Bill Crider's Dan Rhodes Mystery novels. As an avid reader, if I really like the first one in the series, I end up reading them all in order. I can see why Bill Crider has received awards for his work.

I have enjoyed several of the "Dan Rhodes" series. The main characters are all likeable and some a little quirky and the writing style isn't too serious which makes for easy reading. BUT, if you read more than two of the series, you quickly start to see Mr. Crider's writing formula emerge. The story plot may differ slightly, but how you get from point A to point Z is consistently the same with little to no variation. I find that to be a little monotonous.

Sheriff Dan Rhodes is a good old boy and a great cop. In rereading the series I have discovered nuances of the characters that give me a deeper appreciation for the authors skills. Cannot recommend the series enough. Start with the first and read them all in order.

Always enjoy the Dan Rhodes series. The characters make the books for me, as I feel I personally know many of them. The only slight issue I have is I don't know if many small town sheriffs who go into situations with no backup.
The mystery is good without being great. The characters are entertaining, especially if you've lived in south Texas; and the humor is well done.
