by Daniel E. Harmon -- Harper, first name unknown, is a taciturn, pipe-puffing crime reporter for a small newspaper in Reconstruction-era South Carolina. His assignments lead him into unexpected consequences and people - escaped convicts on the Congaree River, shipwrecked survivors in McClellanville, and the eerie "Marion Graves." This collection of eight short stories by Daniel Elton Harmon, Sandlapper's contributing editor, takes the reader back to the days when train rides were bumpy and uncomfortable, telegrams were the fastest way to communicate long-distance, and flatboats were poled down the Edisto. Compared to Sherlock Holmes and Mark Twain, Harper is an unforgettable character. As many critics note, the only complaint is that Harmon's mystery tales end too soon. Soft Cover, 160 pages.
