Book Description

***Updated*** Corrections made in the body of the story.
“Lord help me, I done found another body in the creek. Same place as I found poor Mr. Freddie Boyer. Done in the same way, too. Can you come on down home, Mr. Jordan? I’m so scared, I don’t know what to do.”
Fifteen years ago, Charlie Russell found a body floating in the Hanahatchee River. Shortly after, Jordan Tanner found the rest of the man’s family dead. Now, Jordan must face his memories to uncover the real murderer and save the man accused of the crime before the past has a chance to repeat itself. Will he be able to find the real killer in time to stay the execution of an innocent man, or will the real killer catch up with him first?
Set in the 1930s, this is a fictional account of an actual crime committed and the attempt to seek justice for an innocent man convicted on circumstantial evidence and the color of his skin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not What Was Expected 19 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointed as this wasn't what I expected at all. It sounded a fascinating murder mystery but it's all set way back in the 1930's and nowhere in the blurb does it mention this !! I wouldn't have downloaded it if I realised because as a rule I like my fiction a lot more contemporary. I did give it a go, though....I got to 9% in but the mistakes along with it being set in olden times meant I wasn't going any further.
Waivered where wavered should have been used. Then a to left out of a sentence, a new sentence started mid-sentence..."As he mounted the crumbling steps. The decaying planks gave under his weight". The he scared a mouse but mentioned in the same paragraph that he was glad something else was alive in the place apart from mice, lizards and jungle vines !! Nonsensical.
My final straw was the mention of a rooster with its neck rung. 'Nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars A neighbor isn't always a friend. 12 May 2013
By JudyAnn Lorenz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set in a golden time between the recovery from the Great Depression and the Murmurs of World War II, the quiet south Georgia country is rattled by murder...again.

Trisha O'Keefe's smooth delivery of a hometown story is more than a typical who-done-it. The question of who-done-it is well hidden and worth reading steadily to learn. I hope you will like the presentation of the story from a newspaper reporter's point of view as much as I did. The news room environment is realistic. The dogged need to get at the truth and facts that are part of a journalist DNA provide a stimulating vehicle for the multiple plots that are entwined to keep the story maze a tight one. The flavor of the culture in the south in 1938 is well-played. Racial differences and some class differences seem painful to watch as we hope we've moved into a more tolerant and wise state of mind. I appreciated the description of cars, roads, housing,sports and social events of the era as added spice for the story.

I really enjoyed this book -- spent time reading it when I had other chores to do, but just wanted to get one more twist untangled before I put it down! A delightful labyrinth of connection and support. "We're family." comes from different directions at the right time. The real friends are a surprise.

The story touches painful points in the lives of the characters in terms of race, family acceptance, sexual abuse, murder scenes, and crime, yet the ethics, honor, family solidarity, and community respect triumph. There are moments -- tender, humorous, terrifying. These little lights make the story a great one. Other reviewers have written about a bit of 'contrived plot toward the end' and I guess that is accurate. Problematic characters are wrapped in little packages of closure. They aren't the real grist of the story mill; other readers want these characters' condition addressed and prefer a neat wrap-up/epilogue.

I don't want to give you too many details in a typical book review, but I highly recommend that you follow Jordan Tanner as he seeks justice for the innocent. Walk with him page by page and don't cheat yourself by peaking at the end!

I really hope that Trisha O'Keefe has another novel of this quality in the works. I will be reviewing the book at GoodReads and Ozarks Mystique

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Read 17 Dec. 2012
By James E. Daman - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although the background plot toward the end got a bit contrived, the book was saved by the value of the story (much like "To Kill a Mockingbird"), and by the well-developed characters, who resonate long after the book ends.
4.0 out of 5 stars Many twists and turns 14 July 2014

This book has many twist and turns. Just when you feel you have figured out who did what, something else pops out and then you are questioning yourself. Great book.
