A prominent widow is found dead at the foot of the cellar stairs in the family home on a farm in the lush Bluegrass section of Kentucky. Her head has been bashed in by an old flatiron found near the body and her mouth stuffed full of ashes. The county is shocked – horrified at the brutality of the murder and mystified at the use of the ashes. Theo Clark, a young Marine veteran of the Korean War, working part time at the local newspaper while finishing up his interrupted college career, is assigned to cover the story because no experienced reporters are around when the tip comes in. A band of wandering Gypsies are suspected, as is another young Marine veteran of Korea with drug and alcohol problems. Even the victim’s married daughter, her only child, is a suspect. Theo has never covered a murder but if he can unravel this mystery it can be his ticket to the start of an exceptional career. On the surface a mystery tale, Theo & The Mouthful of Ashes is also an exploration of the social and political dynamics at play in an important small town in the mid-1950s and of the draw home-place has on individuals. It is the prequel to Theo’s Story and carries Theo from his return from the war to the beginning of his career.

Book Description Outer Banks Publishing Group. Paperback. Condition: New. 274 pages. THEO and The Mouthful of Ashes begins with the discovery of the body of a prominent widow lying dead at the bottom of the cellar stairs in the family home in the lush Bluegrass of Kentucky. Her head has been bashed in by an old flatiron and her mouth has been stuffed full of ashes. The county is horrified at the brutality of the murder and mystified at the use of the ashes. Theo Clark, who readers first met in Theos Story, Mr. Rhodys first novel, a young Marine veteran of the Korean War working as a rookie reporter at the local newspaper, is assigned to cover the murder because no one else is around when the tip comes in. On the surface a crime tale, Theo and The Mouthful of Ashes also explores the social and political dynamics at play in the Capitol City in the mid-1950s. It is a fast moving story about a bizarre killing, a young reporter trying to make it to the big time by solving the crime, but conflicted by a girl he cant commit to yet cant let go, a place hes not sure he can leave, a Gypsy clan trying to stay clear of the law, and an ambitious sheriff trying to protect an important family and put the Gypsy leader on trial.
