|A rare snowstorm has enveloped Hillston, North Carolina, covering everything--including a shocking murder. Detective Justin Savile, the wayward son of Hillston's founding family, is expected to arrest the usual scapegoat, but the boozy Justin has never been good at doing the expected.|
From the Publisher:
Detective Justin Savile, the charming, black-sheep scion of one of Hillston's ruling families, investigates the murder of a state senator's wife and finds his life threatened when his pursuit becomes awkward.Detective Justin Savile, the charming, black-sheep scion of one of Hillston's ruling families, investigates the murder of a state senator's wife and finds his life threatened when his pursuit becomes awkward.The polite Piedmont town of Hillston, North Carolina, wants to go on believing it is still too temperate to require homicide experts. But when the wife of a state senator is found beaten to death, the inner circle of Hillston's ruling families arranges to have the case assigned to Detective Justin Savile, the charming black sheep of the dynasty that founded the town.
Aided by his wise-cracking, working-class partner, Cuddy Magnum, and a young woman from the Carolina mountains whose strength and love rescues him from his own destructive impulses, Savile sets out to unravel the deceit hidden in Hillston's past. His obsessive pursuit of one of this own and his determination to save a petty thief from being railroaded for murder not only lead to other deaths, but bring the detective very near to losing his own life. With striking humor and a rich range of characters, Malone creates a landscape struggling the New South's high-tech lifestyles and the Old South's inherited codes.
Michael Malone was born in North Carolina, where most of his fiction takes place. After attending Syracuse University and the University of North Carolina, he went on to Harvard, where he graduated with an M.A. in 1973. He has taught writing at many colleges, including Yale and the University of Pennsylvania.
