A dead body. A ramshackle gin joint. A decades-old murder. A man who can talk to the dead. How are all of these things related? ‘Boogie House’ is a macabre southern novel by the author of the fast-paced mystery ‘The Devil Came Calling.’Rolson McKane is a deadbeat. He lost his job as a cop. His wife left him. He can’t keep his hands off the bottle. But after stumbling onto a dead body in the long-closed Boogie House, he has a new mission in life: solve the mystery of who murdered Emmitt Laveau. After all, Rolson was the one who nearly killed Emmitt’s mother in a drunken wreck.The main suspect is a mucky-muck in the state legislature with national ambitions, and because this is small-town Georgia, no one wants to help Rolson. Sure, he’s got some help from the victim, but who will believe the confessions of a dead man? The whole town’s in the pockets of the Brickmeyers, so Rolson will have to face down the whole of Lumber Junction and his own personal demons to help give justice to the whole Laveau family.
