What did TV reporter Rebecca Rose do
that got her brutally murdered and left
in a gutter in downtown Charleston?
That’s what Jack Connor—crime scene clean-up tech, Iraq War veteran, and the victim’s one-time lover—wants to know when he and his crew are called to sanitize her murder scene. When the police learn of Connor’s romantic link to the victim they waste no time bringing him in as a “person of interest.” Still dealing with emotional and physical scars from the battlefield, Connor takes it upon himself to find Rebecca’s real killer—a search that leads him to scratch the underbelly of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
“Reed Bunzel peels away the layers of mystery like a master
of the genre. The American South hasn’t seemed this
hot, menacing and filled with surprises in ages.
Bravo to a fine writer and a splendid novel.”
– T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Jaguar & The Border Lords
“Taut and elegantly written, gritty in the land of genteel,
nothing runs colder than Palmetto Blood. Reed Bunzel totally gets
the rich contradictions of coastal Carolina ... He makes you want to move down immediately – then makes you scared to.”
– Ellis Henican, New York Newsday
“Captures the sights, sounds, and smells of Charleston and the
South Carolina Low Country with accuracy and feeling.
His characters ... face death and danger with
excitement and real-life drama.”
– Joseph L.S. Terrell, author of Tide Of Darkness & Overwash Of Evil
