245 pages, paperback, 9 x 6 x .75"
Tupelo Street, a murder mystery with Southern Gothic undercurrents, is set in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1971. Casper Tillman, a New England Yankee and newly minted veteran, finds himself in possession of a derelict but stately Little Rock home, one of many in the old Quapaw Quarter. A stranger in a strange land, he must come to terms with the 'New South' while dealing with the ghosts of the old.
