Caught Up in It (Blu Carraway Mystery) by David Burnsworth


  • Welcome to Defining Ways, Blu. What is your full name?

Thanks for having me. Blu Irving Carraway.

  • Where were you born?

Charleston County, South Carolina.

  • What is your profession?

P.I. mostly although I seem to be working for my daughter these days. She runs the business. My partner, Mick Crome, and I are the boots on the ground.

  • Favorite client? Least favorite client?

My favorite client is the one currently paying the bills. My least favorite client is the one that doesn’t.

  • What is your passion?

I love my home, a small island just south of Charleston. It’s full of mosquitoes and no-see-ums but once you get past the parasites, there’s no other place on earth quite like it.  If I were really being honest, I’d say my passion is the adrenaline rush of being in the middle of something about to go south, no pun intended.

  • Is Kuala Lumpur one of your favorite cities?

Hell no. And I don’t think I can ever go back there anyway.

  • Are you more city or country?

I’m beachfront and that won’t ever change.

  • Favorite drink?  Do you drink on the job?

Iced coffee when I can get it. I drink it quite often on the job.

  • Anything else our visitors need to know about you or the book CAUGHT UP IN IT?

I hate people who think because they have money and influence they can get away with things. It shows in the book how much I hate them. Conversely, I fight for what I think is right. Sometimes I almost get killed in the process.  Thankfully, I have some good friends who keep me out of trouble, although I tend to give the impression I’m the one saving them.  Come visit my world in CAUGHT UP IN IT and see how we all pay for our sins.

The award-winning diva, C, has got a big problem: someone wants her dead. A team of mercenaries attempts to gun her down in Kuala Lumpur. Lucky for her, Lowcountry Private Investigator, Blu Carraway, is already on the job there for a different client.

Double-lucky for C, they make their move when she’s chit-chatting with him in a bar. Unlucky for the mercenaries, four of them end up dead.

The hunt is on now for the mega-pop star. Where does she go to hide out? The sleepy islands around Charleston, South Carolina—Blu’s backyard. He’s already proven himself once, so C hires the Blu Carraway Investigation Agency to protect her for real.

The job takes Blu halfway around the world and several cities in between. The search for the truth reveals what could drive a person to want someone else dead.

And Blu Carraway ends up right in the way.
