“Few will be able to resist Crider’s brand of broad humor, eccentric characters, and murder.” —Publishers Weekly
Sheriff Dan Rhodes is called to The Beauty Shack, where the young and pretty Lynn Ashton has been found dead, bashed over the head with a hairdryer. The owner said she’d gone to the salon late to meet a client, but no one seems to know who that client was. Lynn was a party girl and it’s possible an angry wife or girlfriend, or jilted lover, had something to do with her death. Or maybe the killer is a client who confided a secret to Lynn. While he investigates the murder, Rhodes must also deal with the theft of copper and car batteries, not to mention a pregnant nanny goat that is terrorizing the town.
