A stark tale of a crime of passion, Follow Me Down
tells the story of Luther Eustis, a respectably religious Mississippi farmer, who runs off to a deserted island with a young girl and brutally kills her after a three-week idyll. Why? And what was there about Eustis that attracted the young girl in the first place? The explanation of Eustis' motives is tangled and far from obvious, and each narrator perceives and reveals only parts and facets of the truth. Bit by bit, the story emerges, with stunning dramatic impact.
First published in 1950, Follow Me Down continues to enjoy critical acclaim and wide readership.
