Way Down Dead in Dixie

Mystery among the moonlight and the magnolias . . .

OK, forget the magnolias. It’s the end of December, after all, and frost silvers South Carolina’s Low Country. But Pinckney Plantation is still open for visitors who want to see the pride of Indigo Island. The old house claims a long history-or so says the script the tour guides go by.

What the script leaves out are the doors that apparently unlock themselves, the flickering lights, the sound of ghostly footsteps. And the dead body.

The corpse is a new addition. Who is he? And what was he doing at Pinckney? And did he fall, or was he pushed?

These are among the questions that puzzle the self-appointed detective trio of cousins thrown together for the holidays. Revelations about ruthless developers, secretive landowners, and family scandals are interspersed with hilarious samples of Southern manners before the cousins finally piece together the puzzle.
