Sam Jenkins never thought about being a fish out of water during the twenty years he spent solving crimes in New York. But things change, and after retiring to Tennessee, he gets that feeling. Jenkins becomes a cop again and is thrown headlong into a murder investigation and a steaming kettle of fish, down-home style.
The victim, Cecil Lovejoy, couldn’t have deserved it more. His death was the inexorable result of years misspent and appears to be no great loss, except the prime suspect is Sam’s personal friend.
Jenkins’ abilities are attacked when Lovejoy’s influential widow urges politicians to reassign the case to state investigators.
Feeling like “a pork chop at a bar mitzvah” in his new workplace, Sam suspects something isn’t kosher when the family tries to force him out of the picture.

A well written Police Story with wry humor included
Sam Jenkins the new police Chief of Prospect, Tennessee runs afoul of the good old boy network in his pursuit of a killer of a wealthy, despicable local.
The book held my interest and had me grinning at time appreciating the wry humor of Sam Jenkins.
Love this new-to-me author. This fast paced police mystery has what it needs to be a great read, along with some humor(was it just me?) and that crazy southern language, y’all!
A New Prospect
A second coming of the character John Corey. Fast reading with twisting plots-- a must read for who-done-it fans.
