Set in fictional Hillston, North Carolina, aristocratic, romantic detective Justin B Savile V and his brilliant, wisecracking friend Cuddy Mangum are introduced to readers as partners unearthing dark crimes at the heart of the New South. These unforgettable heroes were called "two of the most memorable detectives ever to appear in mystery fiction" by "The New York Times Book Review" and "Time's Witness" was everywhere called a classic to be ranked with "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "All The King's Men".
"Marvelously engaging... splendid...hilarious."
"Gripping...as entertaining as Presumed Innocent, as resonant as To Kill a Mockingbird."
