Broken Chain : A Story of Bloody Tangipahoa
by Shirley Blount




Overview -

In 1909, twisted feuds spawn murder in Tangipahoa Parish, also known as "Bloody Tangipahoa," Louisiana's wild land where shotgun-pistol packing outlaws not only hide in swamps and dense forests, but also command the corridors of law-making and keeping places. Charged with murder and held in New Orleans Prison, young constable, Avery Blount, must rely on his strong family, motley friends, and the eccentric attorney, Clay Elliott, to search for answers and reveal the truth of three murders that took place in the logging settlement of Tickfaw, Choctaw for, "wild beasts shed their hair here."

In a treacherous tangle of deadly threats, hooded night riders, unrecorded murders, and political payoffs, cruel vengeance and betrayal threaten to turn the tide of Avery Blount's trial. In finding kindness and encouragement in unlikely places, he also finds hope that justice will prevail. In a desperate struggle to fight fear and anguish, he finds solace in the memories of his two small children and the love of a remarkable woman who waits in a moonlit pasture. Avery Blount's love and loyalty sounds the final call to arms. Broken Chain is based on a true story.
