Mississippi Moonshine by Kacie Clement


Forty-six years ago, two brothers were killed and thrown in the Wolf River. Can a troubled detective surface the truth before her own life is at risk? Atlanta cop Kamira Jackson can’t forgive herself for getting caught and held captive for ninety days. Feeling unworthy of her job, she flees to Mississippi only to be confronted by a police chief who isn’t happy with his jurisdiction employing a Black policewoman. And she fears she’s being set up to fail when she’s given a decades-old murder assignment and only six months to crack the case.

Vowing to beat the challenge and with the help of a retired veteran, Jackson retreads the slaying of two men shot point-blank and found floating in the isolated swamplands. But exposing an almost half-century conspiracy implicating too many powerful suspects might be fatally hazardous to her health. Can the traumatized investigator overcome her nightmares and solve the cold case? Mississippi Moonshine is the gripping first book in The Cold Case Chronicles crime thriller series.

An interesting, delightful, complex group of characters. I often read darker, heavier mysteries but found this a thought-provoking lighter mystery. The solving of cold cases was satisfying. My favorite part was meeting the characters and sharing in their interactions. I cannot wait for the next book. – Amazon Reviewer
