The Mandolin Case - a Novel by Dr. Tom Bibey

The Mandolin Case - a Novel by Dr. Tom Bibey

The Mandolin Case is a new novel by Dr. Tom Bibey, a physician and bluegrass musician based in North Carolina.

In the book, a medical legal mystery is solved by the local bluegrass community.

Notes about the book on the author's web site, in his own words:

"It shows the truth but tells no facts. The author searched for indelible human truths that are unchanged over generations. He rejected temporary fads that will fade once out of style. The truth was found in the arts, and not science. It was found by ordinary people and not the rich and famous. It is a story for people weary of exploitation of the humble by the powerful, and a roadmap to thwart the efforts of the greedy."

To all at the Mando Cafe,

Thanks so much for your post about "The Mandolin Case". Due to y'all, the Bluegrass Blog, and many others, the darn thing hit # 1 in the Amazon "Country Books" category for about twelve hours yesterday. (It has now dropped back to # 5)

This is as it should be because the secret to the case was in the mandolins. Mandolin people will get it, but much of the rest of the world will still scratch their head and ask, "HUH??? What happened?"

And hopefully force - I mean, encourage - them to learn something about mandolins in the process. ;)

Exactly right! They have no choice if they want to figure out the mystery.
