Death in Little Dixie free pdf The year is 1990, and the small town of Marble City is facing some big changes. Located in the region of Missouri affectionately known as Little Dixie, residents have become uneasy about the growing tourist population within the area-due in part to a newly constructed recreational lake and casino. The locals' concerns are magnified by a climbing crime rate and escalating rumors of a sports scandal-and to make matters worse, a horrifying murder has shaken the small town to its core. It's now up to Sheriff Mulholland and investigative journalist Vicki Stillen to determine who is responsible for the violence. Gripping and suspenseful from beginning to end, "Death in Little Dixie" takes an honest look at the issues faced by rapidly-changing towns in rural America, and makes this setting a backdrop for a thrilling murder mystery. From racism and prejudice to the struggles of young adults confronting a major trauma, the town of Marble City comes to life in a manner that is deeply emotional, sometimes disturbing, and always realistic.
