Publisher's Summary

The Internet? Never heard of it. Smart phones? Who you kiddin'? We're talkin' 1956.
Energetic and eager to make his mark on what Time Magazine called the next great boom town, Bucky Ontario leaves his Louisiana home and hops a bus to Defiance, Oklahoma, a town not particularly adverse to murders, just the embarrassment of them. While helping his friend, Kindra, search for a ring that once belonged to her dead mother, Bucky is told, "Find the baby, find the ring."

Great whodunnit

I'm skeptical of period pieces so when one delivers, I'm a happy camper.

The main character was the embodiment of multi-faceted. I liked him, then I didn't, then I did. And the whodunnit was a big 'ole 'WHAT?!'

It took me awhile to get into the narration but once I settled in, I enjoyed it.

It wasn't until I finished that I discovered this book was the first in a series. Win!

Mystery set in 1950s Oklahoma

In this novel, go-getter Bucky Ontario is determined to make a place for himself in the town of Defiance, OK. He is given a provisional position at a town car dealership. He finds himself in the middle of a town mystery as he tries to unravel a tangle of murder, family secrets, and politics. I like Bucky overall because of his "get up and go" attitudes.

I found myself getting mixed up in all the characters and situations as they were introduced. The plot thickens and twists with each new chapter.

The narration is very well done and brings the characters to life.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
