Two short mysteries set in rural southern California. The hero is an aging wise old sheriff named Bill Eldon. There's a clique of younger politicians and a newspaper editor who would like to take the sheriff down, ostensibly for his old fashioned ways, but really to increase their own political power and ambition. The sheriff admits that he is not up on the latest technical innovations, but he relies on the more traditional techniques of looking at the clues and reading people's characters. The DA and the local newspaper owner try to embarrass the sheriff, But, of course, he gets the best of them.
