Description: « Shotgun Saturday Night » is the second Dan Rhodes mystery by Bill Crider following « Too Late To Die ». The Book was published in 1987 and gives the reader the next installment of the events in the small town in Blacklin County, Texas.
Sheriff Dan Rhodes has hired a new deputy to replace the recently departed last one, who was gored to death by a wild pig (in the previous book), and was also engaged to his daughter. The new deputy’s name is Ruth. The other employees at the police station don’t like her much at first.
To stir things up a handyman brings in three boxes of severed limbs (arms and legs) to the sheriff’s office. As Rhodes investigates the apparition of body parts, the handyman who found the boxes is killed by being shot in the chest with a shotgun. A witness claims to have heard « motersickles » at the time of the murder.
Dan Rhodes also acquires a dog in this book. He does not call him dog. He names him Speedo, but his real friends call him Mr. Earl.
The book has lots of references to songs and music from the 50’s, and to the Ed McBain’s 87’th precinct books which make occasional appearances with questions like (what would Detective Corella do ?).
An all together satisfying read and I look forward to the next one in the series.
