Fever Devilin is killed by an intruder. He doesn't stay dead - thanks to an emergency medical team - but he does slip into a months-long coma. When he comes out of it, there are two things he now knows: that he's been dreaming about the legendary Paris 20's café scene and that his would-be killer was after a blue tin box, containing a photo of what Fever believes to be an angel. As Fever struggles to recover, out there is a would-be killer who must be found while there's still time.

Praise For A Corpse's Nightmare: A Fever Devilin Novel

"Nobody writes Southern better than DePoy, and short of medical school, you won't find a better description of the aftereffects of coma anywhere." - Kirkus Reviews

"The unusual narrative technique that combines whodunit with more unconventional material from the unconscious provides a refreshing take on family history as mystery." - Publishers Weekly
