It's the trial of the century in a 1940's North Carolina town. Murder and vigilante justice. War hero and law student Wes Ross has to save his uncle-but hide the truth. Taught to shoot in the rough logging camps of the North Carolina swamps, Wes Ross remembers his lessons well. Dodging hostile gunfire with dozens of other young Marines, he storms a remote Pacific island as one of Carlson's Raiders in the first commando-style attack of World War II. He blasts several Japanese snipers from their palm-tree hideouts with buckshot before an enemy bullet sends him home. The Carolina homefront includes a new girlfriend and a new occupation, learning to be a rural lawyer in his uncle's law office, including courtroom intrigue and what goes on behind the scenes. Wes, like his uncles, is a good man, the kind who takes up for the poor and downtrodden, looking out for those who are easy prey for bullies. Frog Cutshaw is the storekeeper in the Caney Fork backwoods, a swaggering ex-moonshiner who is deadly with his ever-present .45 auto pistol. Frog's daylight rape of a married woman and the brutal killing of her husband bring on Bible Belt vigilante justice, an eye for an eye, a life for a life. Wally Avett is a retired newspaperman. He lives in North Carolina.

    Murder in Caney Fork is very well written and is one of those stories that you find yourself caught up in. It was a story on life in the south in the 40's and of a young man injured in the war, that returns home and tries to build a life in his home town. The dynamics of the relationships of the characters and the culture made for a very interesting and enjoyable book. This book has it all..from romance to murder to family loyalty.Wally Avett is a fantastic storyteller. I look forward to reading more from him.

    Wally is a born story-teller who pulled me into the story from the first paragraph. Set in a time of great change, WWII, everyone is struggling with loss, survival and starting over. Coming home is never the same after living moment to moment, but Wes did not expect to have to take up arms and protect his family. Wally writes this to where your heart races and you go to bed unable to remove the characters from your mind. Bravo! I heard he has several others in the pipeline. I want more!
