NAMED THE SILVER MEDAL FINALIST 2016 GEORGIA AUTHOR OF THE YEAR AWARDS
After a long season of making baseball bats all Jake Eliam wants to do is relax and watch the World Series. But when his friend Catfish calls with what he says is easy money, his other job as a Private Investigator intervenes. Catfish’s former fraternity brother is looking for his own payday if can reunite all the original players in his ‘One Hit Wonder’ college band and is willing to pay big bucks to track down the one missing member, the lead guitar player. The only lead, his classic Fender that went missing at the same time. The trail meets up with a late night DJ, a beautiful hippie turned wealthy housewife, a stoned drummer with a shaky trigger finger, a mysterious son of the Dixie Mafia and a church where snakes are served up along side apple pie. The search ends up on a snake farm run by a fellow named Sweet Thang who has a penchant for old TV shows and speaking in rhymes. As secrets come crawling out like copperheads, Jake Eliam begins to think he just might end up a ‘One Hit Wonder’ himself.

ABOUT Cliff Yeargin
I have spent my life as a ‘Storyteller’. The majority of that in a long career in Broadcast Journalism as a Writer/Producer/Photographer and Editor.
I spent the bulk of my broadcast career in sports, so the connection to the game of baseball is deep. A large portion of those years were in Baltimore, Maryland where I was lucky enough to cover Cal Ripken’s very first and very last game…and hundreds in between. I began my career in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where I shot the only video of the first 3-point goal in the history of NCAA Basketball. This I am not making up….You can look it up!
These days I have returned to my native Georgia where I work as an Editor/Producer for CNN, spending many hours in the middle of the night trapped in a small dark room…which might explain the urge to make up stories where your characters get to beat up on people.
I grew up on a rural farm in Georgia where a lot of the inspiration for my characters were born…today I live in a downtown Atlanta neighborhood. It is not called ChickenBone. There is no neighborhood called ChickenBone…but there should be!
There are 3 books in the ChickenBone Series. Hoochy Koochy, the 2nd book was named The Silver Medal Finalist in the 2016 Georgia Author of the Year Awards for Mysteries.
Praise For The Jake Eliam ChickenBone Mystery Series
If you’re a southern guy, you know the kind that loves college football, MLB & especially BRAVES baseball, Country & Motown music, and food from the Varsity,Mary Mac’s Tea Room, you’re going to love Yeargin’s books. Think “Lewis Grizzard”, okay. With main characters like Catfish, Dumptruck, Boobytrap and Buddy Lee, you know it’s going to be fun!
