In the mood for creepy? Like mysteries with a Southern flavor especially the brooding mystery of the Appalachians? I can highly recommend Scott Nicholson. He does very well with characterization, too. The good guys are both likable and believable, and the baddies are surprisingly complex. Between "Drummer Boy" and "The Red Church" I tend to favor "Drummer Boy." Will be choosing my next Scott Nicholson book soon!
Just finished "Life and Times" and thoroughly loved it! Mrs. Campbell grew up several states away from me and with a larger family than I had, but so much of her story reminds me of my early life and times. I well remember the scent of Coppertone, summers before sunscreen, and being both fascinated and a little suspicious of those aluminum Christmas trees. I will be looking into some more of her stories.
