An unconventional Southern mystery that is both amusing and brutally graphic, this novel spans Memphis society and culture. J.W. Ragsdale, Memphis homicide detective, seeks the murderer of a tourist and a local society giant during two major social events in Memphis. Gerald Duff positions the arrogance of old money against the easy money of narcotics, masterfully capturing the intersection and dialect of both worlds.
