Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Smoky Mountains Murders by Marlene Mitchell and Gary Yeagle

This mystery features a small town cop as the main protagonist.  Grant Denlinger is a young man pondering his future in law enforcement while faced with the antagonism of his red necked Chief.  Grant is thrust into a series of grisly murders that are totally out of character for his small town.

The authors start the book with a graphic depiction that tends to turn the stomach.   It certainly captures your attention.   The story doesn’t start slowly, it explodes in the first few pages.   Then you are lulled into a folksy mystery that explodes again.   The authors do a great job of dragging your attention away from the TV and painting a true 3-dimentional heart stopper.  

The culmination of the story leads to an ethical dilemma.   Grant is faced with a major decision that will impact the rest of his life.   Motive and means take a new perspective in the final twist of the plot knife.   What is good and what is evil and what responsibility does the average man have for cleansing the soul or perhaps the community. 

I highly recommend the book.    Echoes of Death TBA.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
