Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

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.

Echoes of Death by Marlene Mitchell and Gary Yeagle

   Grant 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.  In the previous book, Grant faced a major ethical decision.  This book picks up where the last book left off. 

Grant Denlinger is back in this mystery set in the Great Smokey Mountains.

I would recommend reading these books in order.  I think they will make more sense.  Once again the community has mixed emotions about the victims of the latest murders.  None of the victims generate any empathy. 

The authors do not tar the villain with a broad brush.  They show the motivation and the provocation of the villain’s behavior.   Instead of loathing the bad guy, you tend to feel sorry for them while knowing that justice needs to prevail. 

Chief Blue is also back and together with Grant they tackle the knotty ethical problem that has plaqued Grant throughout the first book and this book as well.  

Finally there does seem to be the potential for a follow up on this story.  There is a revelation at the very end that clearly sets up a sequel.  

My review of Seasons Of Death (first book in the series.)

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