I enjoyed the book but not as much as I have Depoy's other novels
Unfortunately I read Depoy's last book in the Fever Devlin series first - so I went back and started with the first book
This book introduces Fever Devlin who is a prof. at an university in Georgia. This is a unique book as it is not the usual formula type mystery.If you like folklore, this is a book for you. History is written from the stories or folktales told from generation to generation. Sometimes as is human nature the tale is twisted to serve the needs of the story teller and the truth gets blurred. This story takes place in Appalachia. Depoy want us not to forget the type of life that exists there. Fever gets together with two other guys to find out who killed his half brother. It is a different story and I plan to read the rest of the books in the series.
