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 rammed 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.

"Set in sleepy Benteen County, Kansas, this action-packed mystery, part of a series, features Sheriff English, better known as "Englishman." Lloyd James dramatically changes tone and accents for the variety of characters--from teenage boys whose voices are changing to born-again Christians full of religious fervor. Englishman's Cheyenne brother, Mad Dog, and his daughters, the two Heathers, all become involved in the investigation of how and why his deputy crashed into a school bus full of teens in the early morning hours. James's pacing is excellent. He quickly adjusts to the tense hostage situation, low-key humor, and depictions of small-town life. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
