"A rising star among the current crop of American novelists." (Nashville Banner)
"Denton is a Rockford-like private eye who'd like to avoid danger but has just enough integrity to follow his cases through to the end. Toss him into the colorful Nashville musical milieu, and you get a mystery in which the mournful wail of a pedal steel guitar represents death as well as heartbreak." (Booklist)
While the story line was good, the basic premise has been done before. The down on his luck, somewhat jaded PI; the red neck friend with a heart of gold, etc. The plot just moved very slowly, so while the book wasn't a bad listen, there are books that are much better.
I enjoy Steven Womack's Harry Denton books - the only fault is that Audible doesn't carry enough of them! This one is the best of the three I've read so far but I hope I get to hear better ones soon!
