QUIET EVIL by Morgan James
There are those of us—children of the cinematic world—who simply must hear dialogue as we read it, in order to savor it. Wrapping your tongue around delicious dialogue is only one of the pleasures Quiet Evil offers, but if this is the way you read, I encourage you to try this (in a North Carolina mountain country accent):
“I assume there is a good reason why Daddy is hunting down sausage trucks?”
Subtle and appealing, James’s mountain folk are delightful company for sharing a pitcher of iced tea. James captures the expressive regional flavor with perfect pitch, creating settings charged with a vivid and often desperate history, as she draws us irresistibly into the mystery.
A humorous and warm-hearted heroine, Dr. Promise McNeal generously shares the newfound peace of her mountain existence—days filled with lush fields, baby goats, a faithful hound, a devoted husband, and a charmingly cantankerous neighbor…and warm nights lit with lightning bugs. Yet in this just-released FIFTH Promise McNeal mystery, no matter how sunny the sky, it lowers with the evil Promise’s sixth sense is attuned to.
A circus academy comes to town, flinging together a lethal blend of Little People, high flyers, illusionists, and local freaks. Only Promise’s unique ability to think outside the box of conventional perception will bring the mystery to its suspenseful conclusion.
Just the right amounts of neighborly visit, satisfying puzzle, and shivery thriller!
