Memphis author Lisa Turner to read and sign at Booksellers


Memphian Lisa Turner splits her time between her hometown and Nova Scotia working on police procedurals such as The Gone Dead Train and A Little Death In Dixie. Her new novel, Devil Sent The Rain (William Morrow), once again featuring Detective Billy Able, will be released on Tuesday, September 27th, with a reading and signing at the Booksellers at Laurelwood.

"Fresh from solving Memphis’ most sensational murder case, Homicide Detective Billy Able and his ambitious new partner Frankie Malone are called to a bizarre crime scene on the outskirts of town. A high society attorney has been murdered while dressed in a wedding gown. Billy is shocked to discover he has a very personal connection to the victim. When the attorney’s death exposes illegal practices at her family’s prestigious law firm, the scandal is enough to rock the southern city’s social world.

In a tale of the remnants of Old South aristocracy and entitlement, twisted by greed and vengeance, Billy must confront the secrets of his own past to have any chance at solving the murder of the girl he once knew. But as he seeks the truth, he’s drawn closer to an embittered killer bent on revenge— and eliminating the threat Billy poses."

Kirkus Reviews: “A well-wrought procedural that takes a hard look at the old South’s influence on the new. ” 

Publishers Weekly: “[A] shifting narrative, a keen sense of place, and a steady stream of suspects and red herrings propel the mystery to a satisfying conclusion.”
