From the Author of the Award Winning Jake Eliam ChickenBone Mystery Series
Billy Ray Kincaid is in the catbird seat. He has his own sports network, Cissy, a sexy young sideline reporter and the best college football games on TV. But the self-proclaimed turnaround artist went cheap and BTSN is about to go under. When Cissy is stalked and harassed the news cameras come running and Billy Ray welcomes the free publicity. Enter Jake Eliam, a lifetime baseball man who now struggles to pay the bills making baseball bats on the edge of a train yard known as ChickenBone. If money runs low his best friend Catfish steps in with pulled pork, cold cash and work as a Private Investigator. When Alabama faces Georgia in the showdown of the year, Catfish summons Jake to play bodyguard to Cissy. The easy payday soon turns into a blocked punt of greed and deception. As the trail winds to an old pickle factory in the mountains, Jake looks for help from his friends, along with a drunken former Bulldog named Dumptruck and a reclusive ex-con they call BoobyTrap. On fourth and long his rag-tag team has one last play to run to stay alive or end up permanently benched.

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!
