Editorial Reviews for Lonesome Song!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Unjustly-disbarred-lawyer-turned-amateur-sleuth Shep Harrington faces the demons of his past while investigating the mysterious death of a famous country singer in Elliot Light’s debut, the first volume in the planned Shep Harrington Smalltown Mystery series called Lonesome Song (the sequel, Chain Thinking, is due out this fall). It’s a solid mystery with a nostalgic heart; its standout feature, however, may be the blurb section in the back – “offers more food for thought and literacy than the average,” raves one reader.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

“Elliott Light’s Lonesome Song: A Shep Harrington Smalltown Mystery is a darkly compelling, splendidly written tale about a country-western singer whose death is abruptly ruled a suicide without investigation. Shep Harrington, a perturbed 32-year-old disbarred lawyer, is determined to find out the truth of what happened. The more Harrington learns of the last minutes of the victim’s life, the more disturbing parallels appear between Harrington’s own past and the tragedy he seeks to solve. A fascinating, convoluted novel, Lonesome Song is very highly recommended reading for mystery buffs.”
