Low Country Boil

A Novel

by Clay Culpepper Mercer


Book Details

Savannah Nights Have Never Been Hotter!

When retired child abuse investigator/horse bum Brian Edwards receives a phone call from the governor, he initially suspects a practical joke. The reality is that the governor’s niece is missing and he wants Brian to find her, quietly and without attracting any official attention to the governor or his family. This particular summer in Savannah, Georgia, where the heat, the humidity, and the pollen count are usually in triple digits, turns exceptionally hot when terrorists attack the hotel hosting a fund-raiser held for the governor just as Brian and his team of unlikely recruits are poised to rescue the Governor’s niece. Low Country Boil offers a revealing look into the disabilities field and the professionals that serve individuals with disabilities, while weaving a compelling tale of intrigue and deception coupled with the ruthless violence associated with the international drug trade. Brian’s penchant for bending regulations, and ignoring those he can’t bend, proves to be just the recipe for success in this down home thriller.
