Things are going along okay with Dennis' gig at the Tishomingo Lodge & Casino in Tunica, Mississippi, the Casino Capital of the South, until the day he looks down from the high-dive platform and witnesses a mob hit, Dixie style.

Turns out there was a second witness, Robert Taylor from Detroit, who carries a picture of his great-granddaddy's lynching along with a gun in a briefcase and listens to Delta blues while cruising the back roads of Mississippi in his black Jaguar. Robert works for a man from up north who has come to play General Grant in a Civil War battle reenactment, and like Dennis, Robert has a death-defying act of his own: he's sleeping with his boss's wife.

Adding further intrigue are the women. Vernice lures Dennis with the whitest thighs he's ever seen. Diane comes to do a story on Dennis and wants to take him to Memphis. And still another comes along to give Dennis the surprise of his life. But it's the scams Robert Taylor plays that move the action through all kinds of unexpected twists and turns.

Tishomingo Blues rings true with the best-selling author's dead-on dialogue, capturing the flavor and rhythms of the South, and finds him plotting at his unpredictable best. Download and start listening now!

    " Not my typical choice, but being from Memphis, related to locations in book. Enjoyed it "

    " Typical Elmore Leonard. Reads almost like a screenplay "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by -ed- Erwin | 1/23/2014

    " This book is Leonard's joke on his fans. Just exactly how many characters can you introduce in a book and still try to make the plot work? He hit the limit here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Peter Greenwell | 1/11/2014

    " Sharp, witty, clever, funny...perfect in its execution. Every time I start a long-winded fantasy novel, get 40 pages into it and chuck it away, I know I can rely on Mr Leonard to deliver the fictional goods. Allows me to keep the faith in fiction. "
