Bill Crider: New Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mystery

I received a notice this morning from Murder by the Book, that one of my favorite mystery authors Bill Crider will be signing copies of his new book Compound Murder, the latest in his Sheriff Dan Rhodes series, at their bookstore on Saturday, August 17, at 4:30in the afternoon.

If you are in the Houston area, don't miss this chance to meet one of the best authors in the mystery genre. He's also pretty darn funny with a dry sense of humor. If you can't make it and want an autographed copy, keep reading. I'll tell you how to get one. Also, below is the Kindle Shop link if you want it for your ereader.

More About The Book

Publisher: Minotaur
Price: $24.99, Hardcover

Blurb: Before classes start one morning, the body of English instructor Earl Wellington is found outside the building of the community college. Wellington was clearly involved in a struggle with someone and has died as a result. Sheriff Dan Rhodes pursues and arrests Ike Terrell, a student who was fleeing the campus. Ike's father is Able Terrell, a survivalist who has withdrawn from society and lives in a gated compound. He's not happy that his son has chosen to attend the college, and he's even less happy with the arrest.

Rhodes discovers that Wellington and Ike had had a confrontation over a paper that Wellington insisted Ike plagiarized. Wellington also had had a confrontation with the dean and was generally disliked by the students. As the number of suspects increases, it's up to Rhodes to solve the murder while also dealing with an amusing but frustrating staff, a professor who wants to be a cop, and all the other normal occurrences that can wreak havoc in a small town.
