D.R. Meredith

Author D.R. Meredithabout this book: On the first day of the annual Panhandle Pheasant Hunt there are eight thousand hunters in Crawford County, Texas, and Sheriff Charles Matthews is having a nervous fit. Eight thousand hunters, almost more than residents, means eight thousand chances for at least one hunting accident. With every hunter equipped with a shotgun, there is a chance that accident could be fatal. Despite the fact that pheasant hunting season is close to an economic necessity to Crawford County farmers and ranchers, as the hunters pay large sums to hunt on their property. To some of Crawford County landowners, the money paid by the hunters means the difference between a prosperous year and a lean year. Charles understands that point of view, but still the thought of thousand hunters makes him break out in a cold sweat.

When the most hated banker in Crawford County is found dead in a stubble field, Charles's fears are realized. However, Rich Hansford didn't die in a hunting accident; someone murdered him, and no one in Crawford County cares. Although there a more suspects than pheasants--four upright property owners and two beautiful blondes--no one is about to confide in the sheriff. Indeed, Crawford County believes the murderer deserves a public service award. Even the sheriff's deputies are not interested in looking very hard for Rich Hansford's killer. But Charles has no choice. Not only is it his sworn duty to track down a murderer, but his own freedom may be at stake. No one has a better motive to murder Rich Hansford that Charles himself.

• "Don't miss D. R. Meredith's High Plains mysteries. Delightful characters, vast Texas landscapes, dandy yarns." — Tony Hillerman

• "It is one of the delights of Meredith's Sheriff series that she knows the Panhandle country and Panhandle people so well that she can mirror not what it must be like to be a lawman there but what it is like to live there" — El Paso Herald-Post
