Overview

It's early summer in St. John, Texas, 1974, and two young fishermen try their hand at a new catfishing technique on a lazy, hot summer afternoon. When their efforts dislodge a barely decomposed body from the grips of Sandy Creek, their dreams of a catfish dinner vanish in an instant, along with all hopes of an uneventful summer vacation.

Southern native and author Robert D. Bennett delivers this light-hearted whodunit through the eyes of 12-year-old Joe Ben, who cannot help being impressed by his quirky best friend Junebug's Hardy Boys approach when the circumstances surrounding the death of their fateful catch leads to the murder investigation of St. John's only famous resident.

Filled with twists and turns expected of a murder mystery, Junebug and the Body comes alive using boyhood humor and the rich animation of characters through expertly crafted southern dialogue so intimately authentic, you'll be transplanted right into the thick of this small southern town's murder mystery.

This is the first book in the Junebug Series.

Meet the Author

Robert Bennett was born in Louisiana and spent his childhood there and in Texas.

His diverse work history has taken him across the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean as well as England, and his books are shaped by the people he has known and the places he has visited.

"If I write about a place, it's because I've visited there and either the place or the people left an impression", Bennett said when asked about the inspirations for his books.

He currently resides in Texas with his wife Karren and his Jack Russell Terrier "Sup" and occasionally his twin sons as they return from college on breaks and his daughter and her fiance when they visit.

Look for additional works coming soon in the "Junebug" and "Noah Chance" series.
