Murder in Humboldt
eBook (PDF), 158 Pages
The year is 1962 and this small west Tennessee town has been turned upside down by a labor strike at its main manufacturing plant. It seems that, as result of the strike, some very serious underworld crime problems have surfaced in Humboldt. A small town sheriff and small town Chief of Police have their hands full dealing with the strike - when the worst happens – one of the principal figures surrounding the labor problems is murdered. Carson Reno is very familiar with Humboldt – after all, he grew up and went to high school there. But Carson has a successful private investigation business in Memphis and no desire or reason to get involved. However, circumstances pull him into the turmoil and a situation that grows more dangerous everyday. By trying to not become involved, he becomes deeply involved and ultimately the prime suspect for the Murder in Humboldt.

Aug 5, 2015A small town in the 1960's must deal with some big time crime. Written and delivered in the fashion of Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe, the author magically transports the reader back in time - a time that should be simplier, but isn't. A tough Private Detective uses his muscle and humor to sort through clues and resolve a complicated murder. This is a Classic Carson Reno Mystery with all the usual characters and compelling conversations for the reader. Light illustrations help tell the story and complete the reader's transition back in time.
Feb 28, 2012Got my copy of Sunset 4 yesterday. Bubba, you have an excellent book. I have read approximately 1/3 of the book. Keep up the good work. Bill Goodrich
Feb 23, 2012Thank you for bring back so may memories from my younger years. I have read all 5 of your books so far and will read SU4 soon. Most of my memories are from the chiefs and Mullins ave. I grew up on Mullins and still live there just a few houses from the address you used in your book. As far as the chiefs goes I remember it from my younger years. It was right beside my dads upholstery shop. So it was in full view of our shop dads used to go over there and drink coffee with mr duck sometimes and we can't forget the ramble inn we ate lunch there alot. I 'm sure you might remember my dad Leroy kail. Maybe you could use him in a book I'm sure Carson could use some updated car seats or something. Keep up the good work I enjoy your stories. Lee
Feb 23, 2012"Just finished. Love, love, love it! I giggle everytime a new "character" that I recognize appears. You are so entertaining. Can't wait for more to com. Thanks, Gerald, I love your stories."
Dec 9, 2011Thanks to you, we have had a rebirth and renewal of our lives and times in some of the best years that Humboldt ever experienced. Yet, it is kinda neat to experience these times through the eyes of an adult rather than a teen-ager! It is obvious, through your book sales, that our generation has deep and heartfelt feelings about the '60s. Your stories "bring back that lovin' feeling" of the Humboldt that we grew up in.......the kinder and more gentle times than we have today. Reading your stories provides an escape from reality, and provides us with fleeting, concrete moments of days gone by. Hopefully, it may evoke another generation of readers, who will gleen from the past and can make a difference. Never give up HOPE for Humboldt's future
