"Looking for a change of scenery? Consider a trip to Kentucky to solve the 'Death in the Holler' along with Game Warden Luke Ryder and Sheriff Jim Pike . . . . readers will be pulling for Luke Ryder as he works to reveal the killer . . . " -- Dolores Fox Ciardelli/Pleasanton Weekly.

Kentucky Game Warden Luke Ryder is an alcoholic, and his boss intends to fire him. On the first day of muzzle-loader hunting season someone shoots a Latino man dead on a farm's food plot.Why did the murdered man, a Louisville gangster, come to the remote holler? Who slew him? County Sheriff Jim Pike, Ryder's only friend, asks him to help find the answers. Ryder believes solving this crime may save his job. And Pike offers to hire him as a deputy, if he can quit drinking.

"The author describes the Holler in such a way that you can see, hear and smell it. His writing is such that it brings the reader into the story immediately. This writing is reminiscent of another crime novelist of some note, Joseph Wambaugh. The story itself is set a few years in the future and is a different kind of crime novel due to its protagonist and setting . . . . Get this e-book. You won't be disappointed you did." -- Mark Tarte, retired police sergeant and Administration of Justice instructor at Las Positas College.
