Memphis Luck

Book 2, A Ragsdale & Walker Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The long awaited sequel to MEMPHIS RIBS
Homicide detectives J.W. Ragsdale and Tyrone Walker are back...investigating what appears to be a simple home invasion robbery gone fatally wrong. The clues lead them to an autistic teenager, an aspiring gang member, who talks to the ghosts of Martin Luthor King Jr. and singer Ricky Nelson for guidance. The troubled, homicidal teen has fallen into the thrall of cowboy preacher Jimbo Reynolds, a slick, bible-thumping, Stetson-wearing conman who has based his cash-cow ministry on ideals plundered from John Wayne movies. What Jimbo doesn't know is that he's the target of a gang of misguided ex-cons, led by a psychopathic Native American, who are plotting to take all of his cash...with the help of his greedy publicist and his conniving housekeeper. All of these colorful characters collide in a fateful day of darkly funny, brutal mayhem that's pure Memphis Luck.

“Brilliantly convoluted, wholly satisfying. Pretentions are skewered while Memphis is celebrated in the wry, wicked and completely winning 'Memphis Luck.' Gerald Duff has proven himself a Southern treasure. “ Anniston Star
“This book is really a sly skewering of the racial, social and religious constructions of the American South disguised as a detective novel. The best thing about Memphis Luck is the dialogue. The dialogue! Ragsdale and Walker are like George and Gracie, Ralph and Alice, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. The dialogue between these two is intricate and seamless. The Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers of conversation.” Texas Booklover Blog

From Publishers Weekly

May 21, 2018 – In Duff's initially slow-burning sequel to 1999's Memphis Ribs, wisecracking Memphis police detectives J.W. Ragsdale and Tyrone Walker look into what appears to be a home robbery that went wrong and left an elderly woman dead. The pair get on the trail of Randall Eugene McNeil (aka Do Run Run), an autistic high school student who converses with the ghosts of Martin Luther King Jr. and singer Ricky Nelson. Sidestepping the gangbangers who are trying to lure him into a life of crime, Do Run Run is drawn to preacher Jimbo Reynolds's new cowboy-themed church, unaware that Jimbo is a scam artist with mounds of cash stashed in his safe room. Meanwhile, a quartet of ex-cons are scheming to steal Jimbo's ill-gotten gains. This black comedy eventually catches fire as Ragsdale and Tyrone zero in on the ex-cons en route to the mayhem-filled climax. Fans of laid-back mysteries with a strong regional flavor will be rewarded.
