Publisher's Summary

Lifelong resident of Texas and popular mystery writer Bill Crider delivers what Library Journal calls “a solid addition to a long-running series.”

Blacklin County, Texas hasn’t seen much action since Sheriff Dan Rhodes’ childhood days. So when a ghost is sighted in the jail, and Ty Berry, president of the area’s historical preservation group, is murdered, the small county is shocked. Rhodes must get to the bottom of these mysteries before it’s too late.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Ghost of a Chance to be better than the print version?

    Yes. for sure Guidall is amazing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Ghost of a Chance?

    All of it. I really can't say. He writes with such candor


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great.. never better


    If you could rename A Ghost of a Chance, what would you call it?

    Four legs, a Ghost and a tombstone

    "A Ghost of a Chance"

    Other reviews have noted that they did not get the correct audiobook with their purchase; I decided to buy it and see for myself, because I like Bill Crider's books – and I figured I could call Audible and get them to fix the issue if it was still linked to the wrong file. I did get A Ghost of a Chance by Bill Crider, so any issue with the download has been fixed.

    The book itself was an enjoyable listen. I liked the plot, and the characters are well-developed and likeable. There's plenty of humor to keep you listening. This is something like number 11 in the series; the earlier books are not available on Audible, which is a shame, because it's been years since I read them, and I'd enjoy listening to them on my commute.

    I was ambivalent about the narrator, at first, but, overall, Guidall is a good reader for the series - although his characters do not sound like they're from Texas. He is also the narrator of the Longmire series by Craig Johnson, so at first I had to work to keep them separate in my mind, but it got easier.

    If you like the Longmire books, this is a series you would probably also like (and so is the Bill Gastner series by Steven Havill). Crider is from Texas and paints a great picture of small-town Texas life and law enforcement. I've already purchased several other audiobooks in the series.

    "In the "Longmire" Style"

    Crider's "Sheriff Dan Rhodes" books are enjoyable and similar in styling to Craig Johnsons Longmire series. This one is really a short story, a good buy when on sale. The characters are interesting and certainly will carry from book to book. But the story doesn't really have much time to develop into a full blown page turner. A bit predictable, but still a fun read.

    What would have made A Ghost of a Chance better?

    Not the book I signed up for so DON'T DO IT if you're expecting Crider narrated by Guidall!
