I feel that one should read at least one of the other books in this series to really enjoy it. There are some things that must have happened in previous books that I would have liked to have read so I could have enjoyed this story more. This has a very good ending. I had some trouble in the beginning with the style of language but I got used to it. The characters are great. I received a copy of this book from ireadbooktours for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a four out of five stars.

While dangling a fishing hook from his flat bottom skiff before dawn, former SEAL-turned-PI Craige Ingram spots grey-black smoke coiling above the treetops across the river in the direction of the Georgia bayous and Corpsewood Manor. Bayou or bogs, fire in the uncut cypress and pines bodes a sense that the river is no barrier to the fire that threatens his ancestral home, Moccasin Hollow. Neither are the bodies later found in the burned mansion of Corpsewood Manor. Craige wastes no time in helping his ex-SEAL buddy Lt. Graysen MacGerald who is now Head of Buckingham Homicide Investigations by unofficially investigating the bodies and an exquisite dragonfly brooch found in the mansion with a reputation for evil, hauntings, and mystery.
