Best Nashville True Crime Author 

Mike Glasgow

For those seeking contact with Nashville's id, Mike Glasgow is an obliging guide. His first book Unfinished Canvas, written with Phyllis Gobbell, traces the Perry March debacle. The Bridge, his second title, tells the story of Eric Volz, the Nashvillian falsely accused of murder in Nicaragua. What distinguishes Glasgow from more lurid peers is his ambitious narrative scale and his attention to social milieu—a gift, perhaps, of his Green Hills upbringing. In Nashville and the South generally, the hard- boiled author notes, "the human faults and human strengths of the characters always seem to be more intense and more exposed." Which makes, of course, for gripping reading. —JOEL RICE
