More About This Book

Overview

When Tennessee private investigator Donald Youngblood solved the Fairchild case he vowed never again to go hunting for a missing person. With live-in-love and Mountain Center cop, Mary Sanders, and his faithful black Standard Poodle, Jake, Don's life has settled back into its old routine.

All of that is about to change. An attractive, precocious teenaged girl shows up in his office one morning needing help finding her missing mother.

Now, Don must track down a mother gone wrong while trying to find her abandoned daughter a proper home before child welfare gets the scent. To complicate matters, an old flame, Sandy Smith, is being harassed by a former boyfriend, who is not what he appears to be, and Sandy is begging Don to do something about it.

Tracking down the missing mother with the help of his best friend and partner, Billy Two Feathers, and Don's ever-dangerous new friend, Roy Husky, the trail of clues leads to a Las Vegas confrontation where Don comes face to face with the evil henchmen of Vegas bad boy, Victor the Viper, and nearly pays the ultimate price.

    Three Days Dead is very much alive

    Keith Donnelly's second book shows much growth as a writer. The main characters keep developing and a couple of new ones (Bruiser and Sister Sarah Agness) are compelling. I hope they return. Donald Youngblood faces more danger in this second book as he tracks down a missing mother and there are a couple of nifty plot twists that leave the reader to decide what really happened. This was a real page turner that I could not put down and I was sad when it ended because there was nothing left to read. If you take this book to bed at night, plan to be up late.

    Excellent Read!!

    The author sends the reader into a great words for picture escape. The story unfolds in the readers mind like it is on the movie screen. All characters come to life as the story unfolds. As the story comes to an end, leaves the reader wishing it could go on for another 300 pages and can't wait for the next mystery to unravel.

    Three Days Dead Rates Four Aces Straight!

    Second novel of new mystery writer Keith Donnelly, Three Days Dead engages the reader in the style of Elmore Leonard : fast paced but detailed, funny but poignant with unexpected plot twists and turns.
    Easy to read and difficult to put down, Three Days Dead follows in the footsteps of Three Deuces Down, adding dimension to the major characters and pulling the reader into the most believable world of Don Youngblood and his friends. Great beach book!!

    I really love Keith Donnelly's The Donald Youngblood Mystery Ser

    I really love Keith Donnelly's The Donald Youngblood Mystery Series. I've read all four of Mr. Donnelly's books. I am just sorry that I do not have any more to read. I feel like my best friends have gone out of town for 6 - 12 months. I miss reading about them. We, the readers, do not realize how much time is involved in writing a book, especially all the research. I am just being selfish, wanting more and more and more of his books.

    Three Days Dead

    Keith Donnelly's second in his Donald Youngblood series was even better than the first. I recommend these books to all mystery buffs out there. Keith will bring you into the story and make you a part of this small town and the long distance adventures. The wait for Mr. Youngblood's next escapade is too long.

    Excellent

    I love this book. A young teenager seeks help in finding her troubled mother and when the trail leads to Las Vegas, Don and his associates go in search of her. I love the plot of this story and the voice of the characters. I plan to read the first book in the series and any books after.

    TDD

    An easy read and delightful romp. A desire for economic independence
    realized with a continuing search for intrigue. Our hero extolls
    compassion, puzzle solving and passion. As a great background of East
    Tennessee, simple pleasures and the Smokies weaves its way through and
    home, one wants to linger and know more. Awaiting the next TDD.

    Three Days Dead

    This is a page-turner with characters I feel like I now know personally. Now that I am at the end of the book, I wish I could run out and get my hands on the next novel in the series. Though this is the second novel in the Donald Youngblood series, I believe that readers can relate to the people and the story without having read Three Deuces Down (even though I highly recommend that people read this first book also!) Donnelly's books have pathos, suspense, love, and adventure. Having just read the book, I feel like I have taken a small vacation trip to east Tennessee and have met some wonderful new friends.
