December’s Thorn: A Fever Devilin Novel, by Phillip DePoy

DePoy’s novels seem marinated in mystery, and you’re never quite sure if what’s happening is real or in our hero’s head. Fever Devilin is an Atlanta academic who’s fled the city to live in the north Georgia mountains where he grew up. DePoy’s mysteries that feature Fever are, like December’s Thorn, evocative and place-specific without ever being condescending to their Southern settings. Highly recommended.
