Fever Devilin is a folklorist and a very recent ex-academic who has decided to return to his family home in the Georgia Appalachians. But his homecoming isn't quite what he expected---he arrives at the home he once shared with his now-deceased parents to find a corpse on his front porch, evidence that someone has been living in the house without his knowledge, and someone in the woods around the house taking shots at him with a rifle. Simply put, it could be better.

Instead it gets worse---especially when Fever finds out that the corpse is that of a half-brother whom he never knew existed.

Praise for Phillip DePoy and The Devil's Hearth
