Carson Reno has a new adventure – “Shadow and Lies” (Carson Reno Mystery Series – Book 16) by Gerald W. Darnell

Ger shadows and lies with card

All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
What happens when a rich client, three beautiful women, a shifty businessman, a gambler and a missing spouse are all suspected of murder? The results are a merry-go-round of shadows and lies in a house of cards with clues almost as old as Carson.
Greed, blackmail, infidelity, murder, serial killers and a twenty-year-old crime spin a tale that is practically unbelievable – with the truth masked behind a story that nobody wants told.
This old fashion ‘whodunit’ takes Carson Reno and his crew on a complicated adventure, which has too many victims and too many suspects.
Come along and help Carson find the clues and discover the truth as he tries to make sense of all the Shadows and Lies.

They’re not just killing people, they’re removing the victim’s fingers and leaving strange clues everywhere. Carson becomes involved when the killer sends him severed thumbs – each wrapped in bloodstained paper containing Bible scripture. Clues are everywhere, but none of them make any sense and aren’t connected – yet.
Old names surface and the mystery gets stranger and darker as Carson tries to solve ‘the ‘Fingerprint Murders’.

Someone is brutally murdering people in Memphis, and for unknown reasons, the killer wants Carson involved

Ger fingerprint murders with bible

For some stupid reason, his office phone rang; it was almost 11:30 PM on Saturday night and nobody should be calling at this hour.
“Hello,” Jim snapped after quickly grabbing the phone. He felt the presence of someone on the line, but no one spoke.
“Hello,” Jim shouted again. “Who the hell is this and why are you calling me at this hour?”
While he was screaming into the phone, the door to his office abruptly opened –Jim had a visitor.
“Well, well, well,” Jim said to his intruder, while slowly replacing the phone receiver back in its cradle. “I told you to never come to my office or call me here. And who the hell was that on the phone? One of your ‘other’ friends?” he asked sarcastically.
Jim’s visitor didn’t speak, but simply smiled, while quietly closing the office door behind them. Then they walked across the office, around the large desk and slowly began giving Jim a soft shoulder massage.
“Thank you,” Jim mumbled, enjoying the massage. “But, this doesn’t change anything. We’ve had our fun, you’ve been paid and tonight isn’t a good time – I’m tired, and I’m going home.”
Jim’s visitor still didn’t speak. Slowly they reached a glove covered hand into their pocket and produced a freshly opened bottle of Jack Daniel’s and a couple of glasses, which they sat on his desk, while still performing the soft shoulder massage.
Jim looked at his visitor and then at the bottle of Jack Daniel’s sitting in front of him.
“Whiskey? You brought whiskey!” Jim exclaimed as he picked up the bottle and shook his head.
“You know I don’t drink, and if I did, it wouldn’t be this crap! What’s this for?”
“A toast,” his visitor said, before stabbing Jim in the neck with a large kitchen butcher knife!

“Severed Finger!” A 5-Star Review for “The Fingerprint Murders” (Carson Reno Mystery Series Book 10) by Gerald W. Darnell

Ger fingerprint murders with bible.png
The Black and White pictures mixed in with the story is classic! The Jack Daniels, the butcher knife, and the severed finger. Darnell’s style of writing, along with the sparse photos, paints a vivid picture in my mind and keeps me turning the pages. I’ve read one Carson Reno book before this and have to admit I am hooked. I don’t think Gerald Darnell can top this Reno Carson story. If you are going to read a Reno Carson, this is the one!

Carson notices something is off with Sylvia – “Murder and More” by Gerald W. Darnell

 

ger-murder-and-more-7

Sylvia had not looked directly at anyone other than Byron since entering the bar, at least if she did I hadn’t noticed. She also wasn’t carrying a purse, which I found odd – considering my extensive knowledge of women! She also hadn’t released his arm, except for the few moments while sliding onto her bar stool. Evidently, they were close, or she found some real comfort in having him close because he was certainly getting all her attention.
Without testing her drink, she reached into Byron’s inside coat pocket and retrieved a pack of Tareyton cigarettes and lighter. Handing him the lighter, she put one between those big lips, and he quickly lit it. Apparently now comfortable with her surroundings, she finally sampled her drink before blowing a mouthful of blue smoke out into the room. Sylvia was definitely an interesting, if not strange, woman.
