It's about a tax commissioner's office in an old courthouse. The tax commissioner is murdered, and county officials want to appoint a young clerk to his job. She knows darned well she doesn't want the thankless, headachy position. Then her ex-fiancee, who jilted her in front of two hundred people--most of them local!--tells her not to take it.
Naturally she becomes tax commissioner. But the murderer is still on the loose so she gets twenty-four/seven protection while she's trying to figure out what she's supposed to be doing. The tag customers are ill-tempered, the property taxpayers aren't much better, and her sour co-worker isn't speaking to her.
Of course, none of that will matter if the murderer catches up to her.
Anyway, here are the courthouse pix I took.
This is the courthouse of Pike County, Georgia.
And this is the courthouse of Monroe County, Georgia.
Pretty, aren't they? A lot of Georgia's courthouses have burned or been destroyed. It's nice to see buildings from another era.
