    " Turner has retired to a small town near Memphis to live in peace and seclusion. He's an ex-cop, ex-psychotherapist, and ex-con. When the local Sheriff call upon him for help solving the murder of a drifter, Turner is reluctantly drawn out of his isolation. "

    " I listened to this. Interesting book. Sometimes hard to follow - chapters alternated between present day and flash backs that gradually built the story to explain present day. Some interesting, vivid imagery. "

    " Started out kind of slow, but ended up being a good mystery/life story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg | 1/25/2009

    " Very similar formula to Parker's Jesse Stone series, however this is really beautifully written. I'll look for more titles by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharneel | 10/8/2008

    " A very homey mystery, although the plot is not sophisticated, the literary quality of this book excels. The insights the author provides in the telling makes this a pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 7/18/2008

    " A new series by Sallis with another southern detective, this one white and more rural. Also very good stories. I probably like the Lew Griffin stories a touch better but these are excellent reads. This is first in the series, and features a detective simply known as Turner. "
