Synopsis:

A part from small-town feuds and church scandal, things have been so quiet in the little Arkansas town of Maggody that even police chief Arly Hanks has found time for a vacationBut she returns to find trouble brewing and tongues wagging at fever pitchThe local old-folks' home has been sold to a mysterious outsider, and overnight the place has been transformed into the Stonebridge Foundation, an exclusive rehabilitation center complete with a stone-faced guard who doesn't speak a word of English and an even nastier dogSoon there are rumors flying of mental patients roaming the countryside at night, and every character in town is keeping a gun close at hand, just in caseEveryone is dying to know what goes on behind those inhospitable gates, with the exception of Arly, who has enough rural business to keep her satisfied.

Review:

The Maggody series has long been a favorite of mine when I'm in the mood for something quick and funny.
