Summary

Sleepy Benteen County, Kansas, turns frantic on election day. The radical religious right is out to unseat Sheriff English, better known as Englishman, after his deputy accidentally rams into a school bus carrying the Benteen County teen choir.

Englishman's brother, Mad Dog, a born-again Cheyenne, rushes back from a quest in the Black Hills with a premonition that the sheriff is in serious danger. The sheriff's daughters, too, wake with similar fears and cut their college classes to hurry home.

Then, a student smuggles a gun into the school and begins shooting and taking hostages. And Englishman still needs to clear up one little thing about his deputy's accident: Benteen County doesn't have a teen choir.

It's enough to make a sheriff wonder why he wants to serve another term.

Critic reviews

"Readers will find sleepy Benteen County, Kansas, wide awake and action packed in Hayes' new addition to this quirky series. The mixture of action, humor, and politics will keep readers interested as they wonder just how much can be squeezed into 24 hours." (Booklist)

Entertainment

This one was entertaining from the beginning, I had not heard of the author and just took a shot. I only listen when I'm at the gym and the last day walked six miles on the treadmill to hear the end of the story, it really kept me going. The reader was great, he had wonderful voices. The story was full of surprises and you would never guess what would happen next.

good

this was very good, the format was different a sort of "24" where every hour is told about each character-- the reader made the story
