The Edgar Award-nominated Buck Schatz collection of mysteries that includes a retired cop in Memphis continues with Running Out of Road.
Once, Detective Buck Schatz patrolled the town of Memphis, chasing down robbers and killers with a blackjack truncheon and a .357. But he’s been retired for many years. Now he’s frail and demented, and Rose, his spouse of 72 years, is in poor health and dealing with a decision about her well being care that Buck is terrified to even imagine. The long run seems to be brief and bleak, and Buck’s handiest break out is into the previous.
But Buck’s previous is below assault as neatly. After 35 years on dying row, convicted serial killer Chester March in spite of everything has an execution date. Chester is the oldest condemned guy within the United States, and his case has attracted the eye of NPR manufacturer Carlos Watkins, who believes Chester was once convicted at the power of a coerced confession. Chester’s conviction is the capstone on Buck’s storied profession, and, to save lots of Chester’s existence, Watkins is ready to rip down Buck’s popularity and legacy.
