The Title Said “Read Me”!

Buzzard
I read Donis Casey’s first book, The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, because the title jumped off the new book shelf and grabbed me.

          It turned out to be an engaging mystery story but, more importantly, I fell in love with her large family of characters and the language and lifestyle of early 1900s rural Oklahoma.

          Over the next years I waited with great anticipation to learn the title of Casey’s next book (and I promptly read each one):

Hornswoggled
The Drop Edge Of Yonder
The Sky Took Him
Crying Blood (okay, that title didn’t light my fire)
The Wrong Hill To Die On

          When I saw that her new book Hell With The Lid Blown Off will be released in June, 2014, I immediately logged onto my local library’s website. One copy of the book was on order. I was first to put in a hold request. Now I’m waiting for that wonderful email message that says, “You have a book on hold at Barkman Branch.”
          If you have not read any of the Alifair Tucker series, start from the first title listed above to follow the story of a most engaging family.
