Home from the South Pacific, where he flew bombers and was injured in a crash, Bill Brown lives a simple existence as a bachelor deputy sheriff in Greensboro, Georgia. He looks forward to breakfast at the town diner and a couple of fingers of whiskey in his one good crystal glass when he gets home from work.

When the body of a young woman is found, thins get more complicated. Brown’s investigation introduces him to several rustic characters, and suspects, who live out along Godrey Store Road and beyond.

More suspicious deaths follow and he meets the mysterious DuBose widow and her two daughters. Two in the family appear to possess the gift of spiritual communication. Will the DuBoses be a help or a distraction, or both?

John Bloodworth has roots in Georgia, but South Carolina has been his home for more than sixty years.  His places are Columbia where he worked and the Cedar Creek community near Blythewood where he and his wife Sandra have lived for 45 years. He says he could keep a job, but his work life has included teaching, coaching football and track, government services and mortgage banking.
