Times are rough for Max and Sandra. They've lost their income, live in a trailer, and struggle to make ends meet - all due to the resurrected Tucker Hull. To make matters worse, the ghost detective, Marshall Drummond, refuses to move on and resides in their trailer.
Barely able to afford food, they are desperate to get back on their feet. So, when Max's sole client is murdered in the mysterious Baxter House, he knows they've reached the breaking point. And there's only one way out - push on through.
Max, Drummond, and Sandra will face secret societies, stolen gold, hidden codes, the darkest magic, and of course, the Hulls. The only question - will they live through it all?
Mixing real North Carolina history with ghosts, witches, magic, and more, Southern Gothic continues the supernatural thrills and mystery you've come to expect from Max Porter.
