June 10:  Barry Blair:  Barry Blair is a native of Virginia and grew up in the Roanoke area. He currently makes his home in Jonesborough, Tennessee. He is a graduate of East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN.
    In his first novel, Unwound, Blair introduces us to a world of intrigue in professional baseball.  Skip Bailey leads the NY Yankees to a World Series Championship and he returns to East Tennessee for the offseason, but a trail of deceit, murders, and money laundering cause his life to become unwound.
  All for a Song is Blair’s second mystery in which Detective Jake Bender deals with the murder of Johnny Rose, an over-the-hill Opry star.  The Nashville homicide detective works to uncover  the mystery surrounding the case as Bender’s ex-wife, the mayor of Nashville with her eye on the governorship, wants it solved quickly resulting in a wild ride around Music City.
   A third novel, Superdeaths, finds Jake Bender, retired Nashville homicide detective recently retired to his farm in East Tennessee, asked by the FBI to help in looking for a former high school teammate who has recently escaped from prison.  It turns out that he is one of two former Tennessee Vols football players who are suspected of trying to fix the Super Bowl some twenty some years before. The other is now Tennessee’s highly successful football coach. The problem is that everyone who was involved is starting to turn up murdered.
