Dilys Awards Best Book (nominee)
The debut of a devilishly funny new mystery series set in the South--brimming with scandals, slaughter, and sassy down-home wit. Jordan Poteet returns to his small East Texas hometown to care for his ailing mother, only to find himself confronted by family skeletons . . . and a murdered man in the local library.
"One of the most fun mysteries I've read in years. Thumbs up to Jeff Abbott's delightful debut novel." - Carolyn Hart
