The Freshour Cylindersby Speer Morgan
Tom Freshour needs a vacation. It's the dusty, hot summer of 1934, and he'd like to escape both the heat in western Arkansas and his cases at the county prosecutor's office for the calm and solitude of a fishing trip. But his old Ford won't start, and while it's being repaired, an eccentric and enigmatic collector of Indian artifacts is brutally murdered.

The book is very well written and kept my interest. I live in Northwest Arkansas and enjoyed reading about places that are familiar to me. I would most definitely recommend it.
