The author's expertise as a writer of mysteries (the Sheriff Rhoades mysteries) adds greatly to this eminently readable Western. It is competently written in an economic style, fast and sure in accomplishing its goal to provide an attention-riveting whodunit. Lizzie Randall, the preacher's daughter, is murdered. The men of the west Texas town are set on lynching Paco Morales, a Mexican teenager who happened to be in the vicinity at the time. No proof, but, after all, he is only a Mexican. Reason and/or conscience work on most of the would-be lynchers, so that, in the end justice is served. The list of suspects grows to include almost everyone in the story, thus providing an agreeable tangle of clues.
