This is the ninth novel featuring Texan Dan Rhodes, a small-town sheriff faced with big-city problems--in this case, two suspicious "accidental" deaths within two weeks, not to mention a squabble between two local historical societies that threatens to get nasty (and violent) at any moment. This is a gentle mystery more concerned with character and story than gunplay and tough-guy cliches. Rhodes is an appealing character, a quiet man surrounded by supporting cast members who are (unlike many supporting characters) as vivid as any real-life next-door neighbors. And it's a pleasure to watch him solve this case through intelligence, wit, and just a little bit of luck. Fans will definitely be satisfied, while readers new to the series will find this an excellent way to make Sheriff Rhodes' acquaintance. David PittFrom Library Journal:
In a great mix of Western and mystery, Sheriff Dan Rhodes investigates two very strange murders in Clearview, TX. A series addition (Winning Can Be Murder, LJ 4/1/96) that will leave fans crowing for more.
