River’s Edge is a SEQUEL to Blue Hole ... Two mystery suspense novels set in the Ozark Mountains that have received (200) five star reviews. The story crept out of me when my brother Dub and I took my grandsons Nick and Jake on a camping trip.
In this idyllic setting, I never imagined we would relive the horror of a murder committed at Blue Hole the last time we were there in 1949, or that I would confront the bitterness between kinfolk buried in the deep cool spring fed river of my youth.

“I read your novel Blue Hole to my boys this summer on a gravel bar on Current River, great book! I look forward to reading the Sequel River’s Edge!”— By Jim McCarty, Editor–Rural Missouri Magazine
- Excellent Read -
I found River's Edge difficult to put it down. It takes place in the Ozark Mountains, an area I have never been in. So the descriptions of the rugged hill country, animals and vegetation were of interest to me. This is a story that has a beginning, a complicated and lengthy middle plus an exciting end. It has a great deal of suspense and twists and turns. However it never feels contrived, just as true as happening in real life. I look forward to reading another book by the same author.

- Captivating -
“I read Blue Hole and it was excellent Story Telling … Captivating narrative and point of view through the eyes of a 15 year old boy. Accompanied by his younger brother they go on a camping trip. They encounter a series of startling events that force them to face their own inner fears. The tension grows as the story continues until the reader becomes almost afraid to turn the next page.
I'll be reading the SEQUEL River’s Edge, guaranteed.” By Lloyd Tackitt, book reviewer.
“It all started with the discovery of a human leg bone grandson Nick found sticking out of a gravel bar and ended with, of all things, Tommy attending a sermon preached by brother Dub at his country church.
Tommy had a strange mission the first night he and his grandson’s were camped at the Blue Hole. He found himself outside the tent under the light of a full moon ready to dig up the human leg bone Nick had discovered.
He looked around when he thought he heard something behind him. He figured one of the boy’s might have crawled out of their tent. What would he say if they caught him digging? He wanted the bone for himself? His heart pounded and sweat ran into his eyes. He gritted his teeth when he pushed the shovels metal blade into the gravel. In the quiet darkness under the light of a full moon, the scraping sound was haunting.
