The Mandolin Case from Tom Bibey

Tom Bibey is a physician and bluegrass musician living in North Carolina. Always an avid reader, Dr. B. has taken to writing more and more in recent years, and his blog (Dr. Tom Bibey: Stories of the Bluegrass Music Road) has become popular among both bluegrass lovers and his fellow physicians, as he tackles both topics with style and panache.

He has just released his first book of fiction, The Mandolin Case, which he describes as “a medical legal mystery solved by the local bluegrass community.” Who wouldn’t want to read that!

It is available for sale through for only $18. Sounds like a perfect vacation companion for the bluegrass reader.

    To Mr. Lawless and all the folks at Bluegrass Today,

    Thanks so much for your post about “The Mandolin Case”. Due to y’all, the Mandolin Cafe, 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)

    As a doc I’m in a hard business. All my life people people have asked where my serenity comes from. My answer in always the same; “Jesus and bluegrass music. It ain’t no more complicated than that.”

    God bless you if you’ve played or sung a note of this music, because you are the ones who saw me through.

    Dr. B
