Review of Pigeon River Blues

Pigeon River Blues
Written by Wayne Zurl

Reviewed by Roy Murry, author

A small country town in Tennessee, USA, has a celebrity C.J. Profitt who sings the Blues to her hometown friend the mayor. She is being harassed by some people that don’t like her life style; and she has asked the mayor for protection.

The mayor volunteers a non-Volunteer, ex New York City detective now Chief of Police, Sam Jenkins to be her security while she is in town and doing a gig up the road at Dollywood for charity.  Sam is unlike a Robert Downey, Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes.

He is sociable and charming.  Using deductive thinking, compiling information from his contacts in the FBI, military, and media, he pieces together the - who, what, when, why, and how an event will literally blow up the charity at Dollywood.   

C.J. Profitt’s history as a Country Western Singer is the center of why this event was nurtured, festered, and put into motion. Sometimes it’s the people you hurt that comes back to haunt you, as it is in this novel.

Sam Jenkins police work is the propelling motion of this fast pace read. Sometimes comical and witty, his style works on the written page.

If you like police TV dramas, this book will be as intense but more enjoyable because of Wayne Zurl’s spiffy character Sam.  

Tennessee is called The Volunteer State because they were the first volunteer in the War of 1812, another story.

Dollywood is in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and is the home to Dolly Parton’s Country & Western theme park.
