“Written and delivered in the fashion of Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe” – the Illegals (Carson Reno Mystery Series – Book 8) by Gerald W. Darnell
All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order. Crime DOES pay – especially crime that has the support of our legal system. Carson’s investigative work for Attorney Jack Logan runs smack into the path of the largest law firm in West Tennessee. Trying to stay out of their path only succeeds in putting Carson in the crosshairs of lawyers who want him out of the way. Power struggles, infidelity, organized crime and eventually murder all appear to be somehow linked to this powerful law firm – McCabe, McCabe, Clark, and Lewis. This is a story of the small versus the large in a little West Tennessee community that has no idea of the crime and corruption that lay underneath their quiet daily lives. Join Carson as he takes on the fight of his career when he challenges ‘the Illegals.’
