The 9th volume in Phil Hardwick's Mississippi Mysteries is Sixth Inning in Southaven. Like the others, it is set primarily in one featured Mississippi community and features Jackson Private Detective Jack Boulder.
This time, after Jack's girlfriend turns down his proposal of marriage he drives aimlessly until he ends up in Southaven where he stumbles into a murder scene. As an outsider, he is promptly arrested for the crime and must prove himself innocent. The story moves along briskly and concludes with a satisfying resolution.
These little books are quick reads. While the writing could be smoother, they are enjoyable and entertaining.
