Darla Cavannah is a displaced Philadelphia Police Officer in the wilds of Mississippi. She is also the wife of the deceased NFL football hero, Hugh the Glue. These two facts combine to provide the necessary chemistry that turns a run of the mill mystery into an entertaining story.
Darla is a likeable character. Gusick crafted her well, giving her self deprecating humor while allowing her to be real. She shows her feelings and her competence.
The outlook on Mississippi is interesting. I don’t know Mississippi so I don’t know how accurate the characterization is of the environment. I do know small towns and the characterizations of small town characters and politics were spot on.
A good mystery with some incorporated levity. Thank you, Thank you very much!
I recommend the book.
