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.

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
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
Nov 19, 2011Hey Gerald Have enjoyed reading your books. Fun for beach reading and quick pick whenever. Good job guy.
Nov 19, 2011Dear Gerald Thank you for the most flattering recognition given to me in your book 'the Crossing'. I loved meeting the guys and gals you so realistically write about in the 'Carson Reno' series. It's a movie in the making, I hope. "I love mystery movies!" And I especially took a liking to 'Nickie', that hussy, she is such a flirt. I won't pass judgment on a glamorous E.T. though! Sincerely Peggy Byrd P.S. When released, would you please reserve four copies of 'the Crossing'. I want to buy them, to prove to my grandchildren that at least one famous author liked their grandmother!!
Oct 6, 2011You said let you know how I liked them....I am almost finished with the first one and already know it isn't long enough. I am really enjoying Carson and all the characters, and especially love all the locations. I believe the Maxwells live in Frank Warmath's house. I worked for Frank when I left D.C. in 1969 and moved back to Medina. I wish Tommy were here to share the books because he would have loved it. I was supposed to go grocery shopping this afternoon....and yet I'm reading. Eating is way overrated anyway! With thanks, jane
Oct 3, 2011Fast paced mystery with familiar characters. Variety of mysteries to be solved in order to get to the "real" murderer! If you grew up in a small town, you will feel at home.
Aug 19, 2011Great reading - once I started to read, I couldn't quit. Fiction? Hard to believe! "Humorous, yet realistic." Please more stories about "Reno". I think I fell in love with the guy! I will be going to 'City Drug' to purchase your other books.
Jul 26, 2011"I just finished your book Gerald. I must tell you that i enjoyed it very much. Once i started reading it i could not put it down til i finished.

Jun 22, 2011Gerald. Just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying "The Price of Beauty in Strawberry Land". I don't get to read much at one time and I noticed the other day that everytime I put the book down my husband picks it up and starts reading.I hope you will still send me a copy of "A Murder In Humboldt". Please let me know if I can help with research on your new book.
