A Review

I don't mention reviews often, but this one over at Gravetapping pretty much gets to the heart of what I try to do in the Sheriff Rhodes books. I couldn't have put it better myself.

Gravetapping: RED, WHITE, AND BLUE MURDER by Bill Crider: "Red, White, and Blue Murder is the first of Bill Crider’s novels I have read and it was better than I imagined. It is a unique blend of whodunit and American style hardboiled—probably something like 75% of the former, and 25% of the later. The whodunit part is the comfortable setting, the townspeople—pestering, conniving, kind, and likable. It is a place the reader would love to visit, and in a literary manner, it is a place you have been before, but not for a very long time."

Thanks Bill. RED, WHITE, AND BLUE MURDER was a real treat to read. I'm looking forward to my next foray into Blacklin County. I hope there is another Rib Eating contest that ends with a fist fight...which was a perfect escalation scene.

I'm reading Winning Can be Murder right now. When I pulled it off the shelf, I didn't realize that you had written a book about Texas high school football. Guess I'll have to put it in my football fiction collection when I'm finished.

Well, it's sort of about football.
