Review: GONE DEAD TRAIN by Lisa Turner

If you want to learn about Delta Blues, the Civil Rights Movement in Memphis (and Mississippi), and you want it couched in a snapping plot with well-developed characters, a pair of flawed but admirable protagonists, a deeply-felt and deeply-drawn background, GONE DEAD TRAIN is the novel to read. I was so impressed that halfway through this advanced reader copy (the second book in the series), I bought the first of the series.

Author Lisa Turner intertwines three major themes: Blues, Civil Rights Era, and Santeria, and then interleaves a number of subplots, including mental illness, broken relationships, and a culprit I never saw coming. My high recommendation: Reader, Don't miss this train!
