GIVEAWAY! The Secrets of the Newberrys by Victor McGlothin

THE SECRETS OF NEWBERRY

1950s New Orleans couldn't be sweeter for Ivory "Bones" Arcineaux and Hampton Bynote. Friends since meeting at an illegal gambling house outside Newberry, Louisiana, they indulge themselves with all the fine women, good food, and wild nights they can handle. All seems good in N'awlins-especially for Hampton, who plans to make a clean break from riotous living after falling for the woman of his dreams, classy Magnolia Holiday. But the love of a good woman may not be enough to pull Hampton from the brink of disaster when his pal Bones murders a white city councilman during a simple robbery gone wrong.

Now with the local police and FBI hot on their trails, Hampton and Bones must decide whether friendship is worth losing their freedom-and possibly their lives.



"McGlothin creates a sizzling slice of life in 1947 . . . He weaves convincing historical elements into a fast-moving caper."

-Publishers Weekly on Ms. Etta's Fast House

  16. I found Victor's website interesting, especially the comment about his poor reading skills almost costing him his athletic scholarship. He's certainly turned all that around to become a published author!

  33. A raid on an illegal gambling establishment run in the antebellum home, Twin Cedars, brings together the most unlikely of partners, Ivory "Bones" Arcineaux and Hampton Bynote in The Secrets of Newberry by Victor McGlothin. In the segregated south, Bones and Hampton form a rather unique and illegal partnership in 1955 New Orleans.
