Benny James Mystery Series Box Set (affiliate link)
Welcome to Tilley, Georgia
Ex-FBI agent Benny James tries to disappear and retire on a houseboat in this sleepy lake town, but the local police won’t let him spend his days basking in the sun. Murder comes to town and they need his help.
Introducing Benny James
He’s cool, calm, and you guessed it – collected. The FBI calls it fired but Benny would rather use the term retired when talking about his former career. He was the best of the best and even though he doesn’t want to admit it, he’d like a shot at redemption.
Red was raised deep in the Ozark Mountains by deaf-mute parents away from the world. He’s a young guy who talks like a drunk four-year-old and will steal your heart and have you laughing out loud with his view of the world. Red was only supposed to stick around for the first book, but I had so many emails from people who fell in love with his character that he hangs around for all three.
