An edgy, fast-paced literary thriller about a dysfunctional Savannah family and the secrets that emerge as they investigate a murder and a disappearance, from master storyteller and founder of literary community The Moth, George Dawes Green.
When matriarch Morgana Musgrove calls upon her prodigal son Ransom to help her with a case, the defunct M. Musgrove & Family Detective Agency is back in business, albeit reluctantly. Tensions rise between the Musgroves as Morgana’s granddaughter, Jaq, becomes entangled in the case. Whispers of a mysterious lost “Kingdom”—a community of descendants of the African-American soldiers who fought for King George in the Revolutionary War, and afterwards formed a secret community, refusing to return to slavery—float in the sultry Savannah night. The family of investigators creeps closer and closer to exposing the city’s seedy underbelly, and a depraved history that a powerful few are determined to keep hidden, no matter the cost…
The Kingdoms of Savannah is a return to Green’s roots as a sophisticated, atmospheric suspense novelist, whose deeply human characters draw us into their world from the very first page.
