Mo' Murder, Mo' Blues

Check out the newest installment of the Roy Carpenter mysteries, the short story "Stomp Boogie"...

It features the harmonica-playing hero from the novel CROSS ROAD BLUES...

"Roy Carpenter is a blues musician in 1957 Nashville, and a private detective on the side. Most of his cases are pretty mundane -jealous spouses and insurance scams. But then a wealthy real estate magnate hires Roy to find his missing maid -a stunningly beautiful woman with a terrible secret. Or two. His pursuit of the truth will lead Roy into the seamy underside of Nashville's juke joints and blues clubs, and the even seamier world of the wealthy elite..."

And check out Roy's full-length novel...

"Roy Carpenter, harmonica-playing bluesman in 1957 Nashville, knows great music when he hears it. He also knows a dangerous woman when he looks at her . . . and finds her looking back. Beautiful Sallymae has a brutal husband--just the sort of guy to end up dead, with Roy taking the fall. Prize-winning western writer Troy Smith turns to the crime novel with dazzling results. A tough, passionate, honestly written tale. "One of the best crime novels I've read recently!" James Reasoner.
