The Mob found them! Witness protection didn’t help!

Ger killer among us with blurb.png

All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.

The witness protection program had simply not worked as promised. He and his wife had been relocated to a one horse hick town in West Tennessee, with a promise to start life over – on the right side of the law, this time.
His factory job lasted less than a year. A strike and major labor dispute had cost him his job – and his running around with other women had cost him his wife. He never intended for any of this to happen, but it seemed he was meeting failure at every turn. He had made that difficult move from the underworld to the real world with all good intentions of making it stick – it wasn’t working. Things were dragging him back, and he was finding it too easy to drift into the dark side of life once again.
He knew that if he crossed back over, all chances and opportunity for a life in the real world were over – his one chance gone forever. While he resisted, it just didn’t seem to matter – circumstances were taking him back – he couldn’t stop himself.
He started by renewing some old contacts, asking the right questions and finally by offering his services for hire. It didn’t take long for things to happen, and contract offers coming his way.
They started with a call from Anthony ‘Tony’ Scarsetti. He had worked for Tony in the past, and he believed they held a mutual respect for each other – him for his skills and Tony for his leadership. Tony was a rival of Steve Carrollton, and their competition for the vices in Memphis and on Beale Street was well known. Evidently, Carrollton had been temporarily sidelined – but his operations continued. Tony was looking for some professional help to make his temporary situation a permanent one.
Once again in his life, things were looking up, and he was feeling good about himself – being useful. His skills were needed, and he would again be a contributor. His little house on Mullins Avenue, in this hick town of Humboldt, would also be useful. Quiet, out of the main activity in Memphis, and allowing him to operate under the radar. Besides, the government had bought it, why not put it to good use?
He would start by sharpening the skills that had once made him successful. After all, failure was not an option in this business – only death. Hours in the local forests and woods would give him the privacy required – he had the perfect set-up and the perfect location. Nobody local to challenge him, and besides, if someone did – he was still the best at what he did. Everybody knew that.

   Garrett has called my office a few times over the past year, and I eventually stopped taking his calls. I haven’t had contact or spoken with Garrett in almost six months, and not with Connie since our meeting. That changed last Friday afternoon, and it’s where our story begins.

5-Star Review for “Reelfoot” (A Carson Reno Mystery) by Gerald W. Darnell

Carson is in the middle of all kinds of trouble as he grapples with a senseless murder.

This is the first Gerald Darnell book I have ever read. With the kiddies out of school for the summer, I have been looking for creative YA books, and this definitely made the list.

Reelfoot would appeal to mystery fans and probably any young adult who burns through Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys!

Things are not what they seem in Carson Reno’s adventure at ‘Reelfoot’

ger-reelfoot-with-trees

All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.

An ex-Memphis cop and a friend of Carson is in trouble – but what kind of trouble?
While trying to answer that question, Carson finds more questions – and all with no answers.
What Carson also finds is trouble coming from all directions. The Mafia, the Teamsters Union, an unhappy sheriff and some very rough characters are all looking for his friend, and Carson is in the middle of this mess.
An apparently senseless murder only complicates Carson’s problems, which makes getting to the truth more difficult.
Things are not what they seem in Carson Reno’s adventure at ‘Reelfoot.’

The scam continues – Charlotte is already dead!

Ger strawberry land 3.png

After the ransom delivery call, the scam continues. Denny flies with Phillip to assist with the ransom delivery, which would never be picked up – Travis had split.  Phillip believed he would leave the money, and one of Mickey’s men would pick it up – Charlotte would reappear and he would be off the hook.  Denny never told him anything different.  Denny knew Charlotte was dead, but nobody else did – so everybody else was still on the same plan.
