Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • ©

This contemporary story, set in the dusty Texas Panhandle, features Sheriff Charles Matthews, newly arrived from Dallas to take over law enforcement. The murder is brutal--the dead body of a beautiful Mexican-American girl found in a barbecue pit. The heat is on Matthews for fast results as the town swirls with suspicion and fear. The narrators delivers a dandy yarn in fireside voices--folksy and well paced. Each townsperson has a definite personality and a distinctive voice. Maxwell is especially convincing with female characters--a couple of old biddies enjoyably lighten up this tale of murder, greed and tangled secrets.
