Hartley Gorman College, in Pecan City, Texas, is hardly a bastion of serious scholarship. The little Baptist school is more interested in shielding its students from the evil influence of The World, The Flesh, and The Devil than in turning out future Nobelists. When the Dean is found bludgeoned to death at his desk, things get interesting.
Those readers familiar with the late Bill Crider's books about Sheriff Dan Rhodes of Blacklin County, Texas, knows how wryly witty this author can be; here the humor is revved up a few notches, and the resulting account of Elmore's murder, Sheriff "Boss" Napier's investigation, Bums's well-meant meddling, and the people and doings at Hartley Gorman are the exactly-right mix of realism and wackiness to make the book a delight as well as a suspenseful mystery.

This book had suspense, intrigue, action, and a decent storyline! This book flower nicely, and is definitely worth reading, but its not one of my top favorites?! I don't know ,my mind wandered at times and it didn't have me on the edge of my seat. I will still recommend it as its worth reading just not one of my top favorites! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!
I've heard of Bill Crider, but had never read him. So this was my introduction. Wish I had started earlier. Great characters, great story, great pacing. Could hardly put it down. Will definitely be picking up more books from Bill Crider. #OneDeadDean #NetGalley
