9780060597610: Highway 61 Resurfaced: A Novel

FM rock deejay and private investigator Rick Shannon is back in a big way in the second novel of a series that began with the rollicking Radio Activity.

Highway 61 Resurfaced kicks off when a woman named Lollie Woolfolk sashays into the offices of Rockin' Vestigations and says she wants to find her long lost granddaddy, blues producer Tucker Woolfolk. Before it's over, Rick Shannon has crisscrossed the sweltering Mississippi Delta in search of the thread that connects a dead man in Yazoo City found with a fork stuck in his back to an old man known as Pigfoot Morgan who was just released from Mississippi State Penitentiary after serving fifty years for murder. Further complicating matters is the lovesick Crail Pitts, onetime Ole Miss football star who is driving around the Magnolia State with a noisy lawyer in his trunk, and Cuffie LeFleur, one of four generations of a cotton dynasty that may be on its last legs. In the end, everything points to one of the great mysteries in blues lore: whether Blind Buddy Cotton, Crippled Willie Jefferson, and Crazy Earl Tate ever recorded together. When Rick starts a rumor that he's found the tapes from the legendary Blind, Crippled, and Crazy sessions, a killer is sent to collect them and Rick starts singing the PI blues.

About the Author:

Bill Fitzhugh is the author of seven novels. He still has all of his original organs and plans to keep it that way until the very end, at which point he is willing to let the doctors divvy them up among anyone (with the exception of politicians) who might need them. However, he makes no promises about the quality of his liver. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and all of her organs.

Review:

“Fitzhugh...really shows his artistry in his richly comic, warmly affectionate character studies.” (New York Times)

“Bill Fitzhugh is a deeply disturbed individual who uses his warped talents to write very funny novels.” (Carl Hiaasen, bestselling author of Skinny Dip)

“Mississippi native Bill Fitzhugh has written some of the funniest mysteries on the shelves.” (New Orleans Times-Picayune on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“...Fitzhugh draws especially fine, sensitive portraits of the guys who lived the blues, not just played them.” (New Orleans Times-Picayune on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“Running up and down Delta backroads with Shannon...is a very cool way to spend an evening.” (New Orleans Times-Picayune on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“... puts a shine on Delta Blues that would make Ace Atkins proud.” (Jackson Free Press on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“HIGHWAY 61 will make you laugh--out loud and heartily.” (Biloxi Sun Herald on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED is every bit as much a page-turner as [Fitzhugh’s] first six books.” (Biloxi Sun Herald on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“...[Fitzhugh] provides a solid mystery filled with the kinds of odd, colorful characters fans have come to expect.” (CrimeSpree Magazine on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“A fantastic read.” (CrimeSpree Magazine on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“This is classic Fitzhugh, to complement the classic Rock and Roll. Highly recommended.” (Deadly Pleasures Magazine on HIGHWAY 61 RESURFACED)

“Fitzhugh’s dialogue is as cool as a pitcher of iced tea, and his characters are just over the top...” (Time magazine)

“...a climax so rich you want to hear the tapes as much as the people hunting them down.” (Interview)
