1 Crider, Bill Cursed to Death (A Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mystery)
New York Walker & Company 1988 0802756980 / 9780802756985 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Illustrated by Cangemi, Lisa [cover]

Some edgewear along bottom, ex-library with usual marks. DJ in protective wraps taped to boards. A bright, attractive copy.

"Sheriff Dan Rhodes, of Blacklin County, Texas, is used to bizarre complaints, but they are mostly on the order of a herd of cows loose in the church parking lot, a heavy-metal high-school band rehearsing in a neighbor's back yard, or the holdup man at the Dairy Creem waving a gun and demanding three cheeseburgers and three large orders of fries. The call that comes into the county jail a few days before Christmas seems to be in the same general category. The local dentist, Dr. Samuel Martin, is also a real-estate entrepreneur, and one of his renters has just laid a curse on him which includes, appropriately, the prophecy that all his teeth will fall out. Dan manages to calm the dentist and his opponent, but shortly afterward Dr. Martin disappears and things turn serious. No one, including the 'witch', believes in the efficacy of the curse, but Martin is hardly a well-loved local practitioner (he is, rather, a well-hated local landlord) and it is easier to believe that someone wishes him ill than to understand why it is his rather lusterless wife who is found bludgeoned to death in their upscale home."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
Price: 15.00 USD
