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!

    " The best of the best, especially the recorded book version. "

    " I actually picked this book up because of its title and the Mississippi connections, since I, too, have Mississippi connections. I found it interesting because of its setting in the little town of Tunica, which has lately become a mecca for casinos. It had an interesting plot and the characters were typical Elmore Leonard. Not his best effort. "

    " High-dive pulp. Not especially memorable, but decently characterized and briskly written as per Leonard's standard. "
