Praise For Fever Tree: A Novel of Southern Noir…
"Tim Applegate manages to charm, frighten, arouse and thoroughly entertain us with this crime and romance crossed novel. I love the way innocence, naiveté, maturity and blood-soaked guilt are both seriously and playfully portrayed through compelling dialogue and vivid imagery. This is a wonderful summer read."
