To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was my first Carl Burns book - My favorites are the Sheriff Dan Rhodes books. This one had the same laid back southern humor of the Rhodes books. I liked the protagonist a lot and would enjoy reading more of this series, if there are any. I was kept guessing up till the last minute, but I was having such a good time that I didn't care. With Crider's books this is not unusual :).
Bill Crider's main character is professor and department chair at a small college. He allows the reader to "hear" the monologue of the character's thoughts which are humorous, critical, snide, sarcastic,appreciative, and very personal as anyone's thoughts would be. All of this can point to the solution of the mystery for the reader. The reader sees the suspects for the murder through the main character's eyes. He describes the settings and records the action in the same manner giving the reader a humorous outlook of his situation.
