In Cypress County, where swampland joins ranchland, Sheriff Hyzer is diligently keeping the backwoods lawless trash under control. (If there were a Redneck Anti-Defamation League, this book would put MacDonald on their enemies list.) When McGee and Meyer run off a lonely road in the middle of the night, they look good to the Sheriff for the murder that took place right about there and right about that time.

After pursuading the Sheriff to let them out, Travis starts investigating and joins up with a perky waitress who uses Doris Day for a role model (not Travis's favorite female style). There are so many corpses and so many villans that it is hard to keep track of it all. At the finale, while mending from his inevitable close-call, he is comforted by Heidi - the artist from Chicago of a few stories back.

We are instructed in the deadly skill of knife throwing, and learn how some lawmen earn extra money by setting up and running prostitution rings.
