"Too many suspects and too few clues combine to make it difficult for Sheriff Jess Roden to solve the mystery of the death of Vivian Beck. Of one thing Roden is certain: Mrs. Beck was not killed by the pack of dogs which roams the countryside at night. The evidence is meant to point in that direction, but Roden knows too much about dogs to be deceived." NYtimes.com.
