Summary

The year is 1962 and this small west Tennessee town has been turned upside down by a labor strike at its main manufacturing plant. It seems that, as result of the strike, some very serious underworld crime problems have surfaced in Humboldt. A small-town sheriff and small-town chief of police have their hands full dealing with the strike - when the worst happens. One of the principal figures surrounding the labor problems is murdered.

Carson Reno is very familiar with Humboldt - after all, he grew up and went to high school there. But Carson has a successful private investigation business in Memphis and no desire or reason to get involved. However, circumstances pull him into the turmoil and a situation that grows more dangerous every day. By trying to not become involved, he becomes deeply involved - and ultimately the prime suspect for the murder in Humboldt.

Is Carson gullible or what???

Carson seems to be a magnet for trouble. He has good intentions, but they get blown out of the water!! I empathized with him getting dragged into situations beyond his control. This was mysterious and suspenseful with that mafia touch, and I enjoyed the journey. Carson meets dragon lady Liz in this one. If we could only turn back the hands of time on that!!! Oh well! I never connected the dots to the villain until it came out in the storyline. Great job. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Quick easy listen

This is a quick easy listen that flows well. What I didn't like is the background music that plays too often throughout. I found it distracting and unnecessary.
