“Please write another mystery novel!! You are a great author.” ~Holly C.
Description: Private Detective Chance Richardson stumbles upon the brutally murdered body of Al Bryant out near Happy Valley, North Carolina – the site of the infamous real-life Tom Dooley murder of Laura Foster – after intercepting a CB broadcast asking for help. A local town drunk by the name of Henry Lee Coffey is found near the crime scene and arrested for Al’s murder. Henry’s wife, Ruby, was also killed in a similar manner several years ago which caused Henry to abandon his job, home and to drink. Chance’s pal, newspaper reporter Kelly Grant, is asked by her former high school nemesis Mary Beth Coffey Dula to check into the crime for Henry’s sake. Chance and Kelly start nosing around the former Henry Coffey house, Al Bryant’s place, into Ruby Coffey’s murder and in and around the Happy Valley area, and dig a little into the Tom Dooley legend.
