A Little Death in Dixie - Lisa Turner A surprisingly good regional mystery with the setting of Memphis, Tennessee. I say "surprisingly" because it starts a bit muddled. The author chooses to narrate with several viewpoints before finally settling on Memphis detective Billy Able as the main voice. The result is a somewhat fragmented and jerky story that took a little struggling to stay interested in. However halfway through, the story picks up with twists and turns that elevate the tale to a rip-roaring good novel. It was well worth staying with. This is Lisa Turner's first novel so I am sure she will be offering us some even better mysteries in the future hopefully with the same colorful Memphis environment. Three and a half stars.
