Product description

About the Author

A Tennessee hill boy who was very mobile in his youth, knew poverty both emotionally, financially, and entered the adult world dazzled by all the neon and glitter. Marriage, divorce, beautiful children, and despair followed. There have been many bright spots in my life: an AB Degree from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA. I Taught high school 'Advance Writing,' acted on stage, film, television, and owned my own business. I write non-convoluted books, simple plots and interesting characters. Some of my novels are inspired by real life crime and true events. In each book I write I seem to find more pieces of me. Writing for me is better than the price of a psychiatrist. I'm back home again in Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau... Maybe I'll find some pieces of my own puzzle left here many years ago.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
A damaged hero, brutal murders, femmes fatales and the search for 'Mr Big' - what more do you want?

Billy Ray Chitwood's latest offering is firmly in the film noir category of mystery/thriller. I could almost smell the cigarette smoke and whisky, notwithstanding its modern setting. If it is ever filmed - and it does read rather like a film script - it should most certainly be done in black and white.

Mr Chitwood's central characters, Billy and Marcie, are anything but black and white. They are flawed individuals, ex lovers and potential ... well, let's not introduce any spoilers here, shall we?

The author employs a more stripped-down style of writing than I have encountered in the previous books of his I have read. The narrative is fast-paced, and his hallmark poetic prose passages are less evident. But then, he IS writing a page-turner, after all. The characteristic Chitwood moral ambivalence is, however, on full display.

Pick up a copy. You will whizz through it. I know I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Ray Chitwood does it again! 31 Aug. 2013
By Timothy M. Tays - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Prolific author Billy Ray Chitwood does it again, creating yet another gritty and spine-tingling five-star murder mystery full of carnage and romance. In his latest release, "The Reluctant Savage," Mr. Chitwood expertly creates suspense as he develops his flawed-yet-likable characters. After protagonist Billy Jay Campbell is set up to take the fall for a grisly and especially depraved massacre, he must prove his innocence, uncover the powerful hidden evil behind the deaths, and figure out his own heart which is torn between two equally beautiful and loving women. Masterful writing by the author of the Bailey Crane Mystery Series. Bravo, Mr. Chitwood. You keep us coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls and Bullets 12 Sept. 2013
By Words! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Billy Ray Chitwood's newest novel has all of the elements of a fun read - The handsome, just-home-from-the war detective has his hands full juggling women and bullets. Who will remain standing after all of the bodies fall? And who will win the hero's heart? Have fun finding out.
