    One thought on “The Contrary Blues”

    1. Contrary Blues, by John Billheimer, B, narrated by Jerry Sciario, produced by Books in Motion, downloaded from audible.Contrary, West Virginia is a small town where coal mining has failed, where stills exist, and where a plan is hatched to get money from the government to buy buses for a transportation system in town.

    3. This is the author's first mystery. He has written two other fiction stories about W. Va mines and life in the area.
