Early 1960s. The most famous actress in America, Talllulah Ivey, is in the Mississippi Delta to film a controversial move. A prominent local citizen is shot and killed outside her bedroom window. A note is found clenched in the dead man’s hand. The note holds the key to Ivey’s guilt or innocence. Was it self-defense? Murder? Or something else? Martha investigates the who, what, and why in this twisty, suspenseful murder mystery, embedded with a Paulinian allegory.

This story could be told only by me—Martha McRae. I’m the publisher and sole writer for the Bethel County Gazette.

I also run a boarding house in Solo, Mississippi. We’re just a dot on a map in the center of the Delta. Land so level and wide you could see the sun rise in the east and set in the west. Cotton and cornfields stretched as far as our eyes could see.

We’d always been a speck of a town–too small for any stop signs, much less a stoplight.

Somehow, Solo seemed to maintain a constant 310 souls. Births replacing deaths.

Deaths. We had more than our fair share three years ago when Satan paid us a visit. You can read about those murders in The Rector.

Here we are again, though, in the land of rich stories and good dirt.

Only this time, there’s a celebrity in our midst.

The Solo series reads like Agatha Christie and C.S. Lewis collaborated on a series of murder mysteries that include theology and an allegory. Think of Aslan in Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Aslan represents Jesus. Biblical characters in the Solo series are Jesus, Martha, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul, and Satan.

In March 1977, ballistics link murders going back six months to the same Charter Arms Bulldog .44. A serial killer, Son of Sam, is on the loose. But Coleridge Taylor can’t compete with the armies of reporters fighting New York’s tabloid war—only rewrite what they get. Constantly on the lookout for victims who need their stories told, he uncovers other killings being ignored because of the media circus. He goes after one, the story of a young Black woman gunned down in her apartment building the same night Son of Sam struck elsewhere in Queens.

The story entangles Taylor with a wealthy Park Avenue family at war with itself. Just as he’s closing in on the killer and his scoop, the July 13-14 blackout sends New York into a 24-hour orgy of looting and destruction. Taylor and his PI girlfriend Samantha Callahan head out into the darkness, where a steamy night of mob violence awaits them.

In the midst of the chaos, a suspect in Taylor’s story goes missing. Desperate, he races to a confrontation that will either break the story—or Taylor.

Book 4 in the Coleridge Taylor Mystery series.

Murder Mystery/Thriller – The Butcher’s Bill

The Butcher's BillThe Butcher’s Bill
By Martin Roy Hill
ISBN: 0692802932
Genre: murder mystery, thriller, crime
Formats available for review:     pdf, mobi, epub

In Iraq, a shipment of $9 billion in cash goes missing. Each effort to find it ends in death. In Southern California, a mercenary’s murder, a severed head, and a bloody hand-written message spark a massive manhunt.

The man connecting these two events is William Butcher, aka The Butcher. Those who stole the money want him dead. The cops want him for murder. Butcher’s only hope is his former NCIS colleague and closest friend, Linus Schag.

Torn between loyalties, Schag walks the thin line between doing his job or betraying his friend. Working from opposite ends, Schag and Butcher peel back the layers of conspiracy, revealing a criminal enterprise reaching into the highest levels of government.

Torn from today’s headlines, the plot of The Butcher’s Bill ranges from the California mountains to the waters of the Pacific, and will keep readers on edge until its final, explosive climax.

Mystery – Cant Stop the Funk

ISBN: 978-1944170684
ASIN: B017FCM468
Genre: Mystery, Detective
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub mobi

Each installment of the Detective ‘Cadillac’ Holland Mysteries series is equal parts traditional mystery, political thriller, and an insider’s guide to post-Katrina New Orleans.

It’s an election year and gentrification threatens to displace the already beleaguered residents of the Lower Ninth Ward. This has always been one of New Orleans’ poorest neighborhoods and is barely getting back on its feet five years after Hurricane Katrina nearly wiped it from the face of the planet. Real estate developers of all sorts seem intent upon finishing what the storm could not. It’s up to Detective Holland, despite his ‘talent’ for making a mess of things, to seek justice against something that may not even be a crime and to avoid stirring the city’s deep, dark, and treacherous political waters.

The Detective ‘Cadillac’ Holland mystery series are equal parts traditional mystery, political thriller, and an insider’s tour guide to the Crescent City.

Cooter ‘Cadillac’ Holland left the intelligence community and joined the Louisiana State Patrol to find the answer to his father’s disappearance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Four years have passed and he hasn’t found that answer. Now his sister wants him to prove that a pit bull is the murder weapon and not the murderer of New Orleans’ most notorious criminal. The dog’s tracks lead to a long list of suspects, including the murder victim’s young son, angry fiancee, and shady bodyguard. The investigation ultimately turns up Federal investigations into a rap music label and a cache of missing firearms, a dog fighting ring, the blackmailing of a famous actress, and exposes far more things about Cadillac’s background than William Avery, NOPD’s Chief of Detectives, ever wanted to know when he assigned the Detective to find a solution to the case which would “reach a conclusion in line with everyone’s perception of justice”.
