All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
Someone is brutally murdering people in Memphis, and for unknown reasons, the killer wants Carson involved.
They’re not just killing people, they’re removing the victim’s fingers and leaving strange clues everywhere. Carson becomes involved when the killer sends him severed thumbs – each wrapped in bloodstained paper containing Bible scripture.

Old names surface and the mystery gets stranger and darker as Carson tries to solve the ‘Fingerprint Murders.

Severed Finger!

The Black and White pictures mixed in with the story is classic! The Jack Daniels, the butcher knife, and the severed finger. Darnell’s style of writing, along with the sparse photos, paints a vivid picture in my mind and keeps me turning the pages. I’ve read one Carson Reno book before this and have to admit I am hooked. I don’t think Gerald Darnell can top this Reno Carson story. If you are going to read a Reno Carson, this is the one!

“I just can’t get enough of Carson Reno!” – “Reelfoot” (Carson Reno Mystery Series, Book 11) by Gerald W. Darnell

Ger reelfoot.png

All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
An ex-Memphis cop and a friend of Carson is in trouble – but what kind of trouble?
While trying to answer that question, Carson finds more questions – and all with no answers.
What Carson also finds is trouble coming from all directions. The Mafia, the Teamsters Union, an unhappy sheriff and some very rough characters are all looking for his friend, and Carson is in the middle of this mess.
An apparently senseless murder only complicates Carson’s problems, which makes getting to the truth more difficult.

Viv Drewa

I just can’t get enough of Carson Reno!

The year is 1962 and Carson Reno, once again, gets himself into situations that would be better left alone.

I love his stories about my hometown Humboldt Tennessee.

When I read the books I feel like I’m back at home. Please keep writing about Humboldt and other books. I would recommend his books to any book lovers as I am myself. Please write more I can’t get enough of them.

Fantastic book by Gerald W. Darnell!

I think of all the books I have read by Darnell this one was the best!
The twists and turns in it kept me on the edge of my seat. Carson Reno had a real mystery when the dismembered thumbs did not match the bodies. Moreover, the end was remarkable.
I highly recommend this book to everyone!

Insomniac Reads

A Fresh YA Mystery!

Carson is in the middle of all kinds of trouble as he grapples with a senseless murder. This is the first Gerald Darnell book I have ever read. With the kiddies out of school for the summer, I have been looking for creative YA books and this definitely made the list. Reelfoot would appeal to mystery fans and probably any young adult who burns through Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys!

“Darnell never disappoints!”– “the Crossing” (Carson Reno Mystery, book 5) by Gerald W. Darnell

Ger the crossing with review.png

 All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
The racial problems of 1962 have found their way to the small West Tennessee town of Humboldt. A white woman has been brutally murdered, and one of Carson’s childhood friends has been accused of the crime. Carson’s friend is a colored man who once worked for his grandfather, but the accusations and problems extend beyond the crime and to the heart of this small community.
Carson finds a divided town; a town divided along the lines of race and the interference of outside groups, which makes this division even wider.
Challenged with defending his friend, Carson must find a solution before the two sides collide, which would definitely have devastating results.
Join Carson, as he faces one of his toughest challenges in ‘the Crossing.’

Darnell never disappoints!

This is another fantastic book by Darnell!
I love Carson Reno and the characters who are regulars and the ones which are added to each book. They are believable, and you find yourself so engrossed in the book you cannot put it down.
The story is about an African-American man wrongly accused of murder; but Carson Reno, knowing the man, can’t believe he did.
“the Crossing” is an amazing read, and I highly recommend it!
