    The compound that Bill Crider speaks of in the book Compound Murder relates to a compound where a group of survivalists live and have walled themselves off from mainstream life so that they can survive the coming zombie apocalypse or the end of society as we know it or the break down of the government They have lived in the compound the last twenty years or so waiting for the catastrophic event.I love these Sheriff Dan Rhodes books It s like returning home to a family both familiar, kind and enjoyable The novels are packed with eccentric characters, sometimes funny, idiosyncratic and always enjoyable In this installment The Sheriff must contend with the break in and theft of some wigs and hair extensions, a riot at the pizza hut, a hog in someones kitchen and of course a murder The prime suspect of the murder is the son of the man who commands the survivalist compound.The characters are all well drawn out and convincingly play their parts, and of course everyone claims to be innocent of everything as the Sheriff must comb the details of his investigation through his thinning hair.The ongoing Dr Pepper conundrum is enhanced by the attempt to introduce Mr Pibb into the Sheriffs orbit This being one of the struggles that face the intrepid hard working and animal friendly guardian of the peace in the small rural Texas community.As this is book twenty, I would recommend starting the series from the beginning to get the most out of all the hijinks and situations that Mr Crider so wonderfully gives to the reader.

    Another good entry in the Dan Rhodes series.An unliked English professor is found dead with a cracked head in the junior college parking lot, Sheriff Dan goes to work Besides the murder, there s a lot of theft around the county, and all the little things Rhodes usually needs to ameliorate.Most of the action seems to center on a fenced compound that serves as the home and headquarters of survivalists Dan has to find out how the compound figures into things, without any unnecessary violence.Great job.

    Another great Dan Rhodes mystery this was SO cute and funny and he came through like a champ Or like Sage All the characters are great Hack, Lawton, Seepy, Ivy, and all 3 deputies This story involved a compound which supposedly was able to let its residents live self sufficiently, but couldn t really One young man had the audacity to want to attend the Community College ran into some problems and turned out to be different than had been expected Lots of funny scenes the one about the wild hog in the house was great, but there are others almost as entertaining Keep it up, Crider

    Small town Texas Sheriff Dan Rhodes investigates the theft of hair pieces from the local beauty salon and the death of a professor at the local community college The son of an anti government survivalist group is involved and Rhodes tries to prevent another Waco or Ruby Ridge incident This is a murder mystery without the big city glitz and without profanity or explicit sex Enjoyed it immensely.

    This series is my escapist fare Plots are interesting, characters even interesting some carry over , and a main character who is self effacing, but still really a hero except to the Mayor and County Commissioner The traditional town gown disagreements and divergent views are joined this time with a compound of families with a very divergent life style and anti government beliefs A good mix up Trouble brews.
