What Red White and Bluegrassers Have in Common

        All kinds of people have shown interest in, and bought “The Mandolin Case.” They include, but are not limited to firefighters, policemen, mandolin players, truck drivers, banjo pickers, doctors. lawyers, chicken farmers, school teachers, accountants, singers, and preachers.

        Heck, even hospital administrators tell me they love it. One said it was the best new medical book he’d read in some time. He was out watering his flowers when the U.P.S. truck drove up and the book arrived. An hour later he realized he had ’bout drowned his plants! I might get him some new ones if they die. 

       The readers come in all shapes and sizes and from many different backgrounds.

        However, they all have two things in common. For one they are true bluegrass and agree to keep the bad guys away from me. Second, so far everyone in Harvey County who has read the book agrees on this: If they make a movie of “The Mandolin Case,” and it calls for a bluegrass DJ to spin the songs, they want it to be Dennis Jones. I’ve heard it enough now that Jerry Clower would say it’s scripture.

        When they call for a vote, he’s my candidate. Other than my agent Dennis was the first person to suggest they make a movie outta the thing, and I dance with who brung me. I wrote the book, so I figure I get a say so. You can’t go wrong with Dennis.
