This is the first novel I've read by Billy Ray Chitwood and I truly enjoyed it. I'll be back for more of Bailey Crane.
Billy describes Bailey Crane as a transplanted son of the south. He says there are still a few words that will give away his heritage like the word help may come out as hep. I can identify because I'm also from the South.
Catherine Gibbs, the murdered woman, had no idea as she started her morning that this was going to be her last day on earth. She kissed her daughter, and son good-by, hugged her mom, and headed out the door thinking things were right with her world.
Cathy worked for two of Bailey Crane's friends and she and Bailey had become casual buddies. When Bailey saw her that last morning at his friend's place of business, he noticed her face had a happy glow. He kept remembering how she looked that morning, and hearing how two kids had found her the next day with her head and face bashed in by a rock. It was that and the fact that she was his ex-wife's friend that made him determined to help solve her murder.
Cathy met Steve Langford, her boyfriend, after work that evening and they had dinner. He was the last known person to see her alive. Langford quickly became the police's prime suspect, and Bailey Crane's as well. That is all I will reveal and you will have to read it to find out the rest.
I enjoyed the way Chitwood told his story. He used sayings that I have never heard before. Sometimes they made me smile and sometimes they caused me to laugh out loud.
I like the way his character, Baily Crane, describes himself after a hard night on the town. "My eyes looked like two weak and damaged headlights on an ugly foggy morning."
I liked the way Billy Chitwood tells his story, and all I have left to say is, "Rock on, Bailey Crane."
