Blue Ridge, Black Heart is a fast-paced mystery-thriller that tears through the southern Appalachian Mountains with enough suspense and action to keep you turning the pages. At times the story is even roll-on-the-floor funny. The characters all have depth and substance. Blue Ridge, Black Heart is a fun read for anyone who likes a good mystery.
My e-book looks at the embarrassment of Massachusetts executives who granted Raymond Patriarca a pardon in December 1938. The gangster had served barely 90 days of a 3-5 year sentence when he was pardoned by Governor Francis Hurley. Governor Saltonstall, who succeeded Hurley, put together an investigative committee to address this mistake. My e-book is a combo of crime and gubernatorial mistakes.
