“Wall has succeeded in creating what every mystery writer must dream of—a complex, utterly likeable protagonist whom readers want to spend time with again and again.”—Lowcountry Weekly
“This newest Bay Tanner outing is quite handily Wall’s best. For starters, it takes off at a brisk pace, building up to ‘here’s your ticket, ma’am’ speed by the final third of the novel.”—The State
“With her strong characters, tight narrative, and smart plotting, Wall shouldn’t have to worry about having a short career as a writer. But perhaps the most noticeable part of her fiction is the lush, rich settings provided by setting her novels in an area of the country she’s come to know quite well—the Lowcountry of South Carolina.”—The Beaufort Gazette
“This fast-paced mystery trumps everything else in Wall’s already impressive series. The action charges right out of the gate and never slows down. Of course, while her plots are patently thrilling, Wall has always hung her hat on her ability to bring the Lowcountry to breathtaking life. Interwoven through the tight plot are Wall’s incomparable descriptions of Beaufort, Bluffton, and Hilton Head. The locales may be familiar, but the author describes in such a way that even long-time islanders will see their home in a new light…remarkable…a truly gifted mystery writer.”

On Hilton Head Island, ¿Inquirey¿ Agent¿ Bay Tanner and her lover Interpol Operative Alain Darnay notice a car is following them. Darnay maneuvers it so they catch the teen and rough him up a little before bringing him to Bay¿s house to see why Cart Anderson was following them. They tell them he wants to know why Bay killed his father. Although Bay did not murder his dad, he was involved in a criminal scheme that went bad and he died in an accident. --- After they let Cart go, he fails to appear at his grandmother¿s house and soon a missing person¿s report is filed. When Cart¿s car is found near Fort Fremont on Land¿s End, they visit the area and are welcomed by Minnie Maude Bleaker, the only person who lives in the isolated area. She hints that she knows what is going on, but is found dead on her living room floor before she talks. Bay and Alain become the prime suspects in her death and Cart¿s disappearance. Trying to find out who is behind the effort to frame them almost costs Bay her life. --- RESURRECTION ROAD gives the reader a taste of what it is like living in the modern day (with especially the mint julep crowd) good ol¿ boy network and the migration of the Northerners. This is an excellent who-done-it with a real puzzle trying to figure out who was trying to frame the heroine and why. There are many viable suspects, including a police officer from the North so readers will find the story line totally fascinating. Kathryn R. Wall is a talented writer who is becoming a bright star in the mystery horizon.--- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
