Читать онлайн Dead Folks' blues. I was almost proud that day, when the sign painter finished stenciling HARRY JAMES DENTON-PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS on my door. I just hope to hell my parents don’t find out. I figured my skills as a reporter would easily transfer to my new field, and I hoped my hanging around the courthouse for the better part of ten years would get me jobs.

Friday afternoon rush hour. Where in hell does all this traffic come from? I remember when this whole city shut down at ten. Then again, I remember when nobody had color television. LeAnn Gwynn claimed she didn’t know whether she was in love with him or not, but I knew love when I saw it. Something told me I’d just met the only person on earth who was going to miss Connie. It was late; I ought to go home and grab some sack time. But my conversation with LeAnn Gwynn had been a profoundly disturbing one.

EDGAR AWARD WINNER--Best Paperback Original Mystery 1993.When Rachel Fletcher, an old college flame, enters Harry James Denton's office needing his private detecting services, he'd rather not. But he prefers money to poverty, and agrees to find out what kind of dangerous business her husband is mixed up in. Conrad Fletcher is a rich surgeon with a lot of enemies. He also owes big money to a very big, very bad bookie. But by the time Harry catches up with Fletcher, he's gone from being in debt to being dead. The list of suspects could fill the Grand Ole Opry, and Harry's search for the killer will lead him into the partsof Nashville that no one ever sings about--unless they're singing the DEAD FOLKS' BLUES."A deft, atmosphere-rich novel: smart, funny, and filled with a sense of wry heartbreak. Steven Womack's Nashville stands out--it is a beautifully drawn backdrop."James Ellroy
What a great book! I don't read a lot of mysteries, and after having read this book I'm asking myself why not. It was great fun trying to figure out whodunnit. I also agree with other reviewers that the Nashville setting added to the book. It's a vibrant, exciting city that's full of personality--almost a character unto itself. Womack writes skillfully, realistically, and with great humor. I can't wait to read more of his books.

I love Harry. Great character to follow. If you like Harlan Coban you will like this book. I am from the Nashville area so I could visually trek along with Harry which was nice but this is a fast moving story with interesting characters. I am getting ready to order the second book in the series.

Great story by a gifted writer. I will definitely read more of him. Really enjoyed the Nashville setting and his take on the city.

I knew the author way back in high school (Hi, Steve) and and he has certainly made a name for himself with his self-depracatory, humorous but exciting books. I especially like this series with our lovable down and out reporter turned Private Investigator. It's especially nice to have a book set in the city you grew up in. Over and over I'd think, "Hey, I've been there" or "Yeah, I know exactly what he means - that place is the pits."

Folks wanting a more serious, complex novel centered in Nashville should check out Reed Arvin's "Blood of Angels" and "The Last Goodbye". Steven will not make you sit and brood though. Instead you will find yourself laughing out loud, something expressly forbidden in modern libraries where you are given looks of impending doom. The story is classic: Gambling debts, past loves, murder and discovery. A long ago lover shows up asking Denton to investigate her famous surgeon husband and his compulsive gambling. Our her literally stumbles over the dead body of hubby in the hospital and the action begins.

It is much better than most first novels and better yet, provided the entry point for a whole slew of Harry Denton novels. Congratulations on a job well done.

Before moving to Nashville myself, I had a hard time envisioning this city as a backdrop for mysteries with any bite. Chicago? Yes. NYC? Of course. Nashville? Country music? Rhinestones and banjos? No.

To my surprise, Nashville has much to offer to the genre, from the rich to the kitsch, from the twang to the trailer trash, from historical settings to modern steel and glass. Womack throws his cynical, wisecracking, not always honorable but always understandable, private investigator into the mix and comes up with an evocative mystery.

Harry James Denton finds himself in trouble after being hired by a former lover who is now married to a local doctor. The routine investigation turns ugly, and Harry finds himself at the center of the suspicion, the danger, and ultimately, the clues that will lead him to the killer. Along the way he flirts with financial trouble, physical threats, and romantic interludes.

This is entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant fiction. It's a little dated, yet still matches the mood of Nashville. Womack knows his stuff.

In DEAD FOLKS' BLUES, the protagonist is a newspaper reporter who is fired and becomes a private investigator. All fictional detectives have to have some type of other professional background, and this one for Harry James Denton seems to really work.
When an old-college fling comes to his office wanting him to get her doctor husband out of trouble, Denton is extatic to land his first case. Rachel pays him in advance, and he heads to her husband's hospital to do a little background checking. In the process, he is knock out while Conrad Fletcher is murdered. The story really takes off from there, as Harry soon finds out that there are a multitude of suspects. No matter where Harry turns, he runs into a dead end.
Steven Womack does an admirable job of mingling several different characters. They are all tied together quite nicely in a good, cohesive plot, chock full of witty dialogue and humorous situations.
DEAD FOLKS' BLUES is a fairly entertaining novel, and a good solid effort for the first novel in the series. Although the ending is somewhat predictable, there are enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested. This is pretty good thriller.

One of my all-time favorites, and the first of a great series. I think this series may have been out-of-print for a while, but please be aware that this book won the Edgar award the year it was first published. It's a fantastic book. I'm thrilled to see that the author has released this for Kindle--my old paperback is quite ratty at this point.

This was the first in the Harry James Denton series...and I devoured it in one afternoon. I had to have more! Went out and got as many of them as I could find...and read them all just as fast. Once I started reading, I couldn't put the books down. I was addicted...sigh.
What was cool is that I lived in Nashville at the time, and the setting was there. I learned more about the city through reading his books than I had in the entire time I'd been there.
What even made it better is that Harry lived pretty close to where I was living in real life! He even wrote about the very grocery store I went to every week...
The main character was endearing, yet rough-edged to say the least. I loved everything about the series. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up...I betcha get the next in the series, too...and the next, and the next.....
