LOWCOUNTRY PUNCH by Boo Walker is Available Now
If you're sick of winter weather, take a trip to Charleston, SC, rated #1 city in the US for three years running by the Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards. You won't even need to leave home. Boo Walker's Lowcountry Punch (Sandy Run Press) evokes Charleston's gritty side and its charm so vividly the city itself is essential to the cast of characters.
In Lowcountry Punch, DEA Agent T.A. Reddick leaves Miami for Charleston, SC after one of the worst nights of his life. He's hoping a return to his roots will heal a wounded heart and the guilt of killing a friend. The sleepy and sultry city of Charleston is filled with echoes of the Old South: genteel playboys, society debutantes, and quiet cobblestone streets.
But as Reddick will soon discover, there's danger lurking under her charming veneer. When a movie star's death shines a national spotlight on Charleston's underground cocaine trade, he must go undercover to find the main supplier and shut him down. As a hurricane bears down on the port city and the DEA gets ready to spring its trap, Reddick must contend with more than he ever could have imagined. Brash and bold, TA Reddick is a hero you won't soon forget.
Boo Walker also set Off You Go, a gripping and clever novella, in colorful Charleston. His second novel, Turn or Burn, has received critical acclaim. Walker attended College of Charleston before moving to Nashville to work as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with Automated Trading Desk, a short term equity trading firm based out of Charleston, SC.
When Boo decided it was time for a change, he grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate (see http://www.hedgesfamilyestate.com) on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now travels the world peddling the family's juice, and chances are you can find him in an airport somewhere working on his next novel.
