'Depoy brings the Georgia Appalachians to life through colorful characters [and] a rich knowledge of local folklore.' -Dallas Morning News on The Witch's Grave Fever Devilin is a folklorist who fled the fevered halls of academia to return home to the Blue Mountain region of the Georgia Appalachians and a hopefully quiet life of col-lect-ing folklore. While on such a trip collecting folklore, Fever spots an apparition at a railroad crossing. These appari-tions are traditionally omens of evil and when he returns home he finds his fears are accurate: His friend Lucinda's two nieces have been killed in a suspicious accident. As he consoles Lucinda, Fever promises to investigate the girls' deaths. His promise leads him through a maze of train hopping drifters, old ghost stories, and the wild ravings of an itinerant preacher-as he attempts to uncover the truth behind the tales that are told, and the visions that are seen.
