A sexy relative who wants to teach Wes Darling the meaning of kissin’ cousins, a priceless centuries old manuscript, a three hundred pound redneck, and an ex-spy who thinks murder is a justifiable means of support are just a few of the things awaiting Wes when he sails into the Dog River in search of answers about the father he never knew.
Dog River Blues blends the mystique of the liveaboard boating lifestyle and the colorful characters and vagabonds who live, work, and sometimes commit murder on our nation’s waterways. This is one voyage to Mobile, Alabama you don’t want to miss.
This slightly humorous mystery about an ex-private investigator who runs away from responsibility to live the good life is bound to make you wish you could do the same.
About the Author
In September of 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot sailboat, Roughdraft. We sailed the boat from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years docked at a small marina. We also spent three months living at a mooring in Key West. Currently, the boat is docked in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2011 we intend to take the boat to the Caribbean where we plan to drift until it is no longer fun. When I moved aboard it was my intention that I would write a novel. Six years later I have completed 3 mystery novels. The Storm Killer, Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), and Dog River Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery), are now available as paperbacks and eBooks.
