Muleshoe is a not-so-modern Texas Panhandle town of about 5,000 - on Saturday - during the county fair. But Jarvis Dickle’s been murdered there - three nails in the top of his head.
Nobody liked Jarvis - but then nobody even knew who he really was. His daughter, Lottie, a local disc jockey, is surprised it hadn’t happened before.
Down at the Coffee Mug, they’re takin’ bets on who did the town a favor. But ol’ time Sheriff Asa Hunt knows you need to nip this kind of thing in the bud before it can become like a fresh cow patty on a hot day.
