—J. T. Ellison, New York Times–bestselling author of Lie to Me

“Bound to be one of the year’s most memorable true-crime books. A page-turner. Intriguing.
—John Ferak, bestselling true-crime author of Failure of Justice:  A Brutal Murder, An Obsessed Cop, Six Wrongful Convictions

“A riveting, astonishing story of murder, betrayal, and corruption—but most of all, a story of a dogged amateur sleuth who spends almost two decades chasing leads, connecting nearly invisible dots, unearthing the truth, and attaining a measure of long-overdue justice for a murdered girl.”
—Jon Jefferson, of Jefferson Bass, author of the New York Times–bestselling Body Farm novels

“An amateur detective on the trail of a fall guy wrongly convicted for a babysitter’s murder in Nashville in 1964 is a very good story, and when he hooks up with ‘the living Sherlock Holmes’ to find truth and justice, it’s a great story! Highly recommended.”
—Michael Capuzzo, New York Times–bestselling author of The Murder Room and Close to Shore

“Intrigued by some unanswered questions in the seemingly solved 1964 murder of Tennessee coed Paula Herring, researcher Michael Bishop begins to investigate the case and ends up uncovering the dark, shocking secrets at the heart of this decades-old mystery. A riveting real-life detective story that reads like page-turning fiction.”
—Harold Schechter, author of The Mad Sculptor: The Maniac, The Model, and the Murder that Shook the Nation
“True-crime readers will find a unique opportunity within the pages of A Murder in Music City. The author did not simply report a story; he investigated a murder. Readers will experience the actual unfolding of the murder probe, with all the description and detail that come only from living the criminal investigation. Prepare to be enthralled by this inside look at an unforgettable story.”
—Jack and Mary Branson, authors of Delayed Justice: Inside Stories from America’s Best Cold Case Investigators

“With the discovery of a secret file and aid of forensic investigators, Bishop gets to the root of [a] shocking crime and the decades-long cover-up. Compelling narrative nonfiction and an enthralling true murder story.”
