Fever Devilin, a folklorist by inclination and training, was born and raised amongst the hill-country folk of the Georgia Appalachians and it was there that he returned once he decided to leave academia.  And he’s the perfect person to turn to when the owner of a mysterious medallion, one with some connection to the area, wants to uncover the provenance of the piece.  On the surface, it sounds simple enough but in Fever’s life, nothing is ever simple.  Especially when the medallion’s owner is found dead, murdered, in Fever’s own house and the papers of Fever’s late grandfather, of no intrinsic value, are stolen. And Fever himself in the prime suspect in the murder.
      The only clue to the truth behind these confusing events is the medallion itself, which is somehow tied to Fever’s secretive family’s history. With someone trying to frame him for the murder and other hidden forces hot on the trail of the medallion itself, Fever is wedged tightly between the proverbial ‘rock’ and equally proverbial ‘hard place.’ And the only possible way out is buried within the uncomfortable hidden truths about his own family that Fever has spent years trying to avoid.

A razor of wind cut across my fingers and kicked up leaves; I thought they might have been footsteps following behind me.

Moonbeams revealed a dwarfed boxwood maze that seemed to guard the entrance walkway. Winding through a rose-framed garden knot, the path to the front door was deliberately designed to slow the pace of anyone coming to
