Light, interesting, and within the Canon. Bill can be forgiven for creating the Buick Rambler.

Sheriff Dan Rhodes spends as much time dealing with local politics and unhappy citizens as he does working on actual crime, and maybe that is the reality in a rural county which doesn't seem to have any towns of any size. He also shares his meandering thoughts, which might deal with what he did (or didn't) learn in grade school. Not exactly bumpling, but he's not necessarily in good condition for chasing down suspects--times when he hopes one of his deputies will make it on time.
I'd have to read other books in the series to get an explanation for why he hardly speaks with his wife Ivy.
Good enough book to pass the time, not likely to be remembered long.
