Mystery at it’s best

If you’re from a small town, you know how politics and personal relationship have a huge influence over life and/or death in the community. Murder is seldom experienced in small towns and when it happens, the world is turned totally upside down. Murder in Humboldt is an exciting, never know who “done it” until the end mystery novel. Well written and enjoyable. Can’t wait till the next issue is available.

An awesome read!

“Murder in Humboldt is a true mystery from cover to cover. Just when you think you know who the killer is, there is a twist and you are left scratching your head….wondering….a real “Whodunit”. Being from Humboldt, I loved that I knew the places that “Carson” went. A good read!

Another great Carson Reno mystery

I haven’t read all of the Carson Reno books, however, I did read the last book in the series and really enjoyed it. I was really glad to have been given a chance to read the next book in the series and this one didn’t disappoint either.

What I enjoy about these books is that despite them being set in the 1960s, they don’t read like that. Darnell gives his books and writing a fresh feel to them and read just as highly as any top notch crime/thriller book written in our current time. The books are always fast paced and have plenty of going on to keep you hooked throughout. I would definitely recommend this series to anybody who likes a good a crime read. I am definitely looking forward to reading the next one!

I realise this is a quick review but what can you say when there’s nothing negative and a complete five star rating! This was a fantastic read and something I will keep recommending.

I really enjoyed the way Darnell handled the period structure of the story. He introduced enough examples of contemporary sights, events, and cultural facts to make the reader feel that she was back there in the time and place he presented. I look forward to the next book in the Carson Reno series.

Nathan Battle & Susan Battle (wife) like most couples were fighting over money

By Tony Parsons

1962, Memphis, TN. Nathan Battle & Susan Battle (wife) like most couples were fighting over money.
Nathan decided to not go to their apartment (1611 Summer Ave., # 12), but instead, go visit his brother Evan Battle (Brown-Thompson shoe factory) in Humboldt.

At the Hatchie River bridge (Highway 70/79) Nathan spied a car that had crashed.
A confrontation with the incoherent man didn’t end well.
Beside him lay a briefcase crammed full of $500,000 worth of cash.
Tom Longwood & Frankie Longwood ran an illegal operation (cards, booze, prostitutes) out of the Humboldt Motel (Sunset 4; Capital Loan & Pawn, Memphis mafia).
Joey ‘get outta’ town’ Moretti (Memphis Mafia, former NY Gambino family) would frequent the place.

Sergeant Jordan Helms (TN. Highway Patrol) stopped to talk with Nathan & check out the wreck.
Nathan made it to Evan’s place said hi to Cassidy Moon (Evan’s GF).
Nathan & Evan went to Chiefs Motel & Restaurant to have a beer & talk.
Deputy Sheriff Jimmy McElroy, Sheriff Trent Lowery (Haywood Co.), & Captain Chip Falstaff (TN. Highway Patrol) arrive at the accident scene.
Sergeant Helms & Riley Manning (Lexington, KT.) had been murdered.
Joey showed up at Evan’s house & that did not go as planned.

He had been shot by Titus Dunwoody.
Joey called Guido Carbone (BMF, Memphis Mafia)
Sheriff Leroy Epsee (Gibson Co.) asked Carson Reno (Drake Detective agency) to help with the murder cases.
Titus pulled into the Harmon’s Creek Country Store parking lot with Nathan, Evan (shot), Sissy Chase (Cassidy’s BFF), & Cassidy.

What happened at Harmon’s Creek fish camp?
Will the murder mysteries get solved & someone brought to justice?
Wow, the priceless antique cars.

I had an MH client who lived in a trailer & a lot that looked just exactly like that 1.
& the 2nd. a trailer as well.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. Wow, a very well written crime mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great crime mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series. 1 you won’t want to put down. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
