What Happened on Beale Street
What Happened on Beale Street is an exciting addition to the Secrets of the South Mysteries from bestselling author Mary Ellis. These standalone, complex crime dramas follow a private investigator’s quest to make the world a better place…solving one case at a time.
A cryptic plea for help from a childhood friend sends cousins Nate and Nicki Price from New Orleans to Memphis, the home of scrumptious barbecue and soulful blues music. When they arrive at Danny Andre’s last known address, they discover signs of a struggle and a lifestyle not in keeping with the former choirboy they fondly remember.
Danny’s sister, Isabelle, reluctantly accepts their help. She and Nate aren’t on the best of terms due to a complicated past, yet they will have to get beyond that if they want to save Danny.
On top of Danny’s alarming disappearance and his troubled relationship with Isabelle, Nate also has to rein in his favorite cousin’s overzealousness as a new and eager PI. Confronted with a possible murder, mystery, and mayhem in the land of the Delta blues, Nate must rely on his faith and investigative experience to keep one or more of them from getting killed.

"Easy to read, well researched and full of great discussion points for any book club, Mary Ellis' novels should not be missed."
—Carrie C. Wolfgang, Novel Destination-Used Book Emporium
"Author Mary Ellis is fast becoming my favorite mystery/suspense author!... With Ellis's skillful writing, characters and settings come alive, both main and secondary characters as well as the historic hotel's backstory."
—Laurie Kingery, author of Hill Country Courtship
"I have nothing but praise for this fast-paced, superbly written story that combines suspense, romance, and faith. "
—Susan Simpson, author
"Mary Ellis does a good job of making this story stand on its own."
"I enjoyed the book very much."
"I thought I knew exactly how it would end, but Mary Ellis seems to be able to surprise me to the very last page. The suspense makes this hard, if not impossible, to stop reading once you start. I see more stories coming with this wonderful cast of characters and I am curious where we will travel to next."
