One of Humboldt's well-known horse breeders is brutally murdered, then left to burn in his barn along with his prized stallions. A Jack Logan client has been accused of the murder and Carson has been called in to investigate.
However, getting to the truth is proving to be a real challenge. It seems no one, not even the accused, is capable of telling the truth.
Greed, lust, infidelity, half-truths and the Memphis Mafia all seem to be involved – somehow. Sorting out the pieces and finding the real murderer, will be a monumental task.
Carson becomes involved in the web of lies and faces one of his biggest challenges, as he tries to solve the case of Horse Tales.
About the Author
A Florida native, Gerald grew up and attended high school in the small town of Humboldt, Tennessee. Following graduation from the University of Tennessee, he spent time in Hopkinsville, KY, Memphis, TN, Boston, MA and Newport, AR before moving back to Florida – where he now lives.
Gerald worked as a Senior Manager with several Fortune 100 companies, before officially retiring in 2007. His non-fiction book, ‘Don’t Wake Me Until It’s Time To Go’, is a bio-narrative including humorous stories and events spanning his life from pre-high school to retirement.
His fiction books are what he calls ‘Fiction for Fun’. They use real geography and include pictures and characters some readers might recognize. The ‘Carson Reno Mystery Series’ are adventure mysteries set in the early 1960 time period, with the primary geography in Memphis and small southern towns. During the early 70's the author worked from an office in the Memphis Peabody Hotel, so many of the events about the hotel in Carson Reno’s stories are real as well as many of the characters you meet.
His books are available at selected bookstores and gift shops, on-line and through Amazon. Kindle readers can also enjoy some of his works at The Amazon Kindle Store.
Published Carson Reno Mystery’s include:
‘Murder in Humboldt’
‘The Price of Beauty in Strawberry Land’
‘Killer Among Us’
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a native of the real town that is the setting for most of the Carson Reno adventures, I probably get more involved than the casual reader of mysteries. But, aside from being able to actually remember the locations in the book, the stories are logically devised and well written. Carson, as chronicled by Gerald, is fun to follow.
