    1. This aw as pretty cool little mystery One of the things I generally dislike in mystery novels, particularly the series novels, is the formula In most, it s a sort of ping pong or tennis pattern the PI goes from one witness to the next, and then repeats, each time learning something the witness forgot to say the first time and usually getting in trouble or beaten up along the way.Refreshingly in One Dead Dean, Bill Crider managed to only have his professor detective act, for the most part, when s [...]

    2. 1 of the Carl Burns This 1988 cozy featuring Carl Burns, head of the English Department at a small denominational college in rural Texas, follows the first three mysteries featuring Sheriff Dan Rhodes of Crider s long running series The current novel starts off extremely slowly you don t really start to find anything about Burns background until 3 4 of the way through this 200 pager This appears to be deliberate and the character and the story build together Halfway through this initial offering [...]

    3. An earlier series from Bill Crider This is set in a small denominational college in Texas, where a much hated dean is murdered Fun story Dr Carl Burns is head of English and he s a compulsive list maker Ten Best Faulkner books or Things I hate most And a snoop This was the audio release and the reader did an average job He most irritatingly mispronounced the word pecan A pee can is a receptacle for an emergency when plumbing is unavailable A p cahn is the nut of the p cahn tree, best eaten by pi [...]

    4. I d totally forgotten what a wonderful snarkfest Bill Crider s writing is And the laid back performance by Dean Sluyter is the perfect showcase for this form of humor I will admit to being thankful that Sluyter did not give the performance in Southern or Texan drawl, as I often find the speech somewhat incomprehensible to my ears.The basic tale is retro to the late 1980s on the campus of a denominational college Carl Burns is the normally non descript professor who discovers the body of a very u [...]

    5. Couldn t get past dull story line nasal narrator Would you try another book from Bill Crider and or Dean Sluyter Reviews showed me that this book picked up a bit towards the edn, but I had to put it down after about an hour as I found the story trite, overdone, and just couldn t tolerate the narrator s nasal voice.I don t think I ll read another book by either.What do you think your next listen will be I was hoping that this book would be sinister than it was I ll go back to serious mystery nov [...]

    6. Harley Gorman College is a small denomenational institution in a little Texas town, and Dean El rules there, with the willing consent of the college president Carl Burns, head of the small English department, is one of the many faculty members who dislike what El is doing to the college But Burns is the only one who finds El s dead body He can t determine whether the local police regard him as a suspect, but whether or not they do, he feels impelled to find out who killed El.

    7. Disclosure I received a free audible copy of this from Audiobookblast for an unbiased review.This was a decent mystery, but not terribly exciting and a bit dated written in the late 1980s The story moved somewhat slowly and the main character did some fairly stupid things, tho he is overall likeable I didn t like the accents the narrator chose for a lot of the voices The story is set in Texas but it didn t sound like Texas to me The book would have benefited from a better narrator or else being [...]
