Publisher's Summary

"All that grows must decompose." —Cletus J. Diggs

When Cletus J. Diggs gets a visit from his buddy Jasper and learns about the dead man sticking boot-first out of the fishing hole, he has no idea what it will lead to. How could he? Old Mill is famous for a lot of things, good fishing, barbecue, over-sized satellite dishes, and disappearing beer; it is not known for genetic research, ancient rituals, or alien abduction. From the moment Cletus and Sheriff Bob drag the corpse from the fishing hole to the final moments of terror, the action is non-stop, tense, and filled with surprises.

Between the Reverend Dozier and his church, the swamp witch, the albino twins, and the local lodge's well-hidden secrets, the strange events in Old Mill, North Carolina, are pretty much out of control. Only Cletus, ordained minister, common law attorney, journalist, private investigator, and jack of all trades can draw together the people and resources necessary to set things right. The question is, can he do it before it's too late?

Excellent

I cant say enough about this story, the book was interesting the characters were lovable. The voices were a bit over the top and borderline "stereotyped" for the deep south. With that said I would like to highly recommend this to anyone. Being from the south and from "the hills" myself I remember listening to my grandparents telling me similar stories. Loved it.

Perfectly Right for Unexplained Local Folklores!

Very entertaining storytelling and delivery. Eerie, mystical, and mysterious.
The characters are ... characters within themselves! I love this little town and the citizens.

Highly recommended for those looking for southern charm with a supernatural twist to satisfy cravings. I wish there were more in this series.

Joe Geoffrey is the perfect narrator to provide both believability to the characters and suspense for the plot.
