Donald “Hokey” Busby has a bit of the devil in him, but nobody thought he’d kill his best friend, Harry “Fats” Shell. Yet, one night on the Walker family farm, Hokey brutally shoots Fats down. Hours later, Hokey is found dying in a pool of blood, from a single shotgun blast. The Walkers fear more bloodshed will come as family and friends gather for the shocking double funeral of the murderer and victim.

Review:

"The pace of the book is masterful. Walker's autobiographical approach gives readers real characters, real tension, three-dimensional setting and a gripping, true story that feels more like adventures by a combination of Harper Lee's Scout and Mark Twain's Huck Finn. The reader, very quickly, stops being a reader and transforms into a participant that sees, hears, smells, feels, and grieves along with the real-life characters from 1957."

BlythevilleCourier News: Tom Henry's literary review of Murder on the Floodways, Crime with a Local Flair, October 1, 2015 - Page 13.

"...The results of his [Walker's] labor are displayed in this book, an unusual mixture of the memoir and true-crime genres that brings alive the swampy landscape of the Bootheel and its impoverished inhabitants..."

Kirkus Reviews

"The unusual double funeral of killer and killed is enough to make one want to read this book. It is more than that though. The pages transport you back to a time now lost - life on the Floodway ditches in the 1950s. I actually dropped a tear as I finished the book."
Daily Dunklin Democrat: Kennett, Missouri: Steve Patton, Editor July, 2015 literary review of Murder on the Floodways.

"Readers looking for a page-turning, true-crime saga will be pleased with Murder on the Floodways. But more importantly, anyone with an interest in reading about life in Missouri's Bootheel should pick this up immediately; it will transport them back sixty years into the past and drop them firmly into the midst of a transformative era in this region and into a double death that disrupted life in a small-town community."
The Arkansas Review, a Journal of Delta Studies, University of Arkansas, April, 2016 by Adam J. Criblez, Director of the Center for Regional History, Southeast Missouri State University and Assistant Professor in their Department of History.
