Duck River Press Presents: Dupree's Delta Double Down By Pharoah Cain.

What Readers Are Saying:

"Reading a Django Jake story is like getting a letter from an old friend. Cain captures the essence of the Delta and its people: beautiful, bleak, joyous, precarious, living with their ghosts."

“I loved seeing Jake share center-stage with an old friend. It reminded me of the old Travis McGee series from years ago, but with a Blues soundtrack.”

“I waited a long time for this follow-up to Django’s Tunetown Shuffle…It was refreshing to see an older version of Jake- wiser, living on the road, and still willing to put it all on the line for a friend.”

Also available at Amazon.comAmazon/Kindle, and Smashwords

“Fast moving and well told by Cain.”

“A tale of redemption with more twists and turns than a Tennessee Backroad.”

“Definitely an adventurous and entertaining ride…”

“A tale of redemption with more twists and turns than a Tennessee Backroad.”

Duck River Press Presents:
Clyde's Ride
By Pharoah Cain.

"Each of us, in our buried past, has at least one dark, shameful knot we'd like to go back and undo." - Pharoah Cain

A compelling journey- Buckle up, get comfortable, and let Clyde take you on down the road.

“In the southern tradition of writers such as Harry Crews, Larry Brown, William Gay, and others, Pharoah Cain paints an unblinking character study of a man out of step and out of style, running on fumes and desperate to reclaim even the smallest part of his lost and splintered soul." AmericanaArcade.com

Also Available at Amazon.comKindle, and Smashwords.

“Cain’s style is down to Earth, emotional, funny and thrilling…”

“Over the top in the Best way."

“I love Jake…he’s the best kind of hero."

Duck River Press Presents:
Django's TuneTown Shuffle:
A Hard-Boiled Hillbilly Tale
By Pharoah Cain.

Book 1 in the Django Jake Shepherd Southern Noir/Mystery Series.

This Nashville thriller offers a rarely seen glimpse of 1990’s Music City through a host of characters far removed from the mainstream of country music.

Lyrical, moody, sometimes brutal, Pharoah Cain's story is not the typical Nashville fare of Opry dreams and record deals but rather belongs in the realm of Americana, Noir, Hard-Boiled, Pulp and Action Mystery.

If you enjoy reading Cormac McCarthy, James Crumley, James Lee Burke, and Elmore Leonard - Django's Tunetown Shuffle should be on your must read list!

Tommy Womack

Ever wondered what it's like to be on the road in a Rock'nRoll Band?

“Tommy Womack is brilliant.
Even the stories he makes
up are true.” - Todd Snider

"In 1985, three other guys and I -- in Kentucky, of all places -- formed a band, hitched our sled to the rock and roll dream and screamed mush from the pits of our souls. We had nothing going for us save a vehement, greasy, turbo-psychotic vision of how things might turn out, and we went for it. It is good to pursue an outlandish dream. Latch on to the wild dogs. Grab that whip and yee-the-hell-hah! Eventually the sled comes out from under you, and from that point on, you either run like hell or you get your face dragged all over God's creation, scraping on rocks and bouncing off the sides of trees."
