THE NEW DEPUTY IN TOWN
The New Deputy in Town (4.5), Nick Rogers figures a small town is good for what ails him as he lays low, waiting to testify against a crooked cop in Los Angeles. But when an old woman is poisoned at a bridal shower, he has to wonder if small towns are all that safe. Local girl Laney Cavanaugh insists on helping Nick as he looks into the death, as well as attacks on single men and the crime spree of a kleptomaniac dog. B.J. Daniels' tale of small-town mayhem scatters red herrings with a skillful hand in this top-notch tale.
