The blues were born out of pride, anger and need. Murder comes from those same dark places.
One of Memphis’ most seductive and notorious socialites has disappeared. She’s either off on another of her drunken escapades or the disappearance is something much more frightening.What begins as an ordinary day’s work for Detective Billy Able of the Memphis P.D. quickly grows into a high-level spider’s web of tragedy, mystery, suspicion, passion, and sordid secrets–including a few of Billy’s own.
Along with Mercy Snow, the estranged sister of the missing socialite, Billy follows a twisted path of human frailty and corruption to disturbing truths that undermine everything he thought he knew about himself and the people he loves.
Carole @ Carole’s Random Life In Books has created a fun new feature called Books from the Backlog to spotlight neglected and unloved books that have been sitting on your bookshelf for too long.
This book has been on my Kindle since 2011. Now I know why I chose it but I cannot for the life of me understand why I have not read this one yet. I love a good detective series, books set in the south and a good sounding mystery. This book checks off all of my boxes. I look forward to finding the time in my reading schedule to dive headlong into this great sounding book.
What books do you have sitting neglected?
