My Review

Reviewer’s Note: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Plot in Brief: Lawyer Catfish Calloway takes on a case mid trial. The outcome seems to be a forgone conclusion but Catfish is not convinced of his client’s guilt. With a life on the line, he, Miss Peach and his son, Harley, must prove their client innocent!

The Characters: I fell for Catfish and Company after reading the first instalment in this series. Powell brings his characters to life, they seem so real

The History: The story is set in Waco, Texas near the turn of the century. The ‘talking phone’ is making its way into people’s lives and they are just shy of the modern world. Powell infuses this world with great period detail and immerses the reader in Catfish’s daily life.

The Writing: Well written with a great crime story, the narrative flows at a steady pace.

Overall: Another great book, filled with wonderful characters. Lovers of historical fiction will enjoy this book as will those who love a great whodunit.


My Rating: 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐stars
