Editorial Reviews

Review

There's no arguing the math. Murder in the Ozarks adds up to a solid mystery with dynamic characters. --Jen Forbus of Jen's Book Thoughts

I finished reading Murder in the Ozarks and congratulate you on a writing project well done. It's an enjoyable, intriguing read. I especially think you did an excellent job of portraying the physical and atmospheric setting of the Ozarks. I felt right at home in Wishing Springs and personally loved the Eureka connections, such as Sparky's. You breathed life into distinct characters of the region, such as Slim and Mabel, and in the course of the novel made me care about Andy and his well-being -- and his relationship with Malinda unfolded nicely, as we true romantics expect. I recognized and appreciated how you drew from people near and dear to you, and incorporated stories and features of the region to help spin an interesting tale. Thanks for the good read! --Comments by author Raymond Teague

Steve Weems' murder mystery offers an unusual protagonist: an accountant. Murder in the Ozarks is the only book - murder mystery or otherwise - that I can recall where the main character is a bean counter. --Arkansas Libraries, Fall 2011

About the Author

Steve Weems returned to writing motivated by his love of the forests and lore of his native Ozark Mountains. He draws inspiration from deep woodland hikes, clear spring-fed creeks, and the thrill of continually discovering nature's mysteries. His writing is often fueled by the desire to capture the tales of a disappearing culture learned from the elders of his family.

More About the Author

Steve Weems returned to writing motivated by his love of the forests and lore of his native Ozark Mountains. He draws inspiration from deep woodland hikes, clear springfed creeks, and the thrill of continually discovering nature's mysteries. His writing is often fueled by the desire to capture
the tales of a disappearing culture learned from the elders of his family.

Although the Ozarks have always been home, Steve also grew up in such diverse places as Greece, California, and the Washington, DC area. Following a stint in the U.S. Army locked inside a vault in West Germany, he attended Arkansas Tech University and received a Bachelors of Science degree. Steve then pursued a not-quite-glamorous career in Accounting.

Steve and his family live in a deep hollow in the Arkansas Ozarks

Not too often do yo see a book with well drawn characters combined with a good, serviceable plot. I especially like the inter-weaving of several sub plots. I'd like to know more about Max and how another main character came out out (no name to protect new readers).

This was a great read. The characters are engaging and I felt like I really got to know them. The portrayal of someone coming to the Ozarks for the first time was very much like my first time here. The mind of an accountant, like me, is portrayed very accurately, too. One of the best financial thrillers I've read ever. Would love to know more about the characters and their future lives. Hoping for a follow-up.

3 stars...Just ok. Not one that I minded putting down and going to do other things. Characters were kind of boring but took place in the part of the country where I live and that was the reason I read it in the first place.
