Publisher's Summary

"All that grows must decompose." (Cletus J. Diggs) 

When Cletus J. Diggs gets a visit from his buddy Jasper and learns about the dead man sticking boot-first out of the fishing hole, he has no idea what it will lead to. How could he? Old Mill is famous for a lot of things - good fishing, barbecue, oversized satellite dishes and disappearing beer; it is not known for genetic research, ancient rituals, or alien abduction. From the moment Cletus and Sheriff Bob drag the corpse from the fishing hole to the final moments of terror, the action is nonstop, tense, and filled with surprises. 

Between the Reverend Dozier and his church, the swamp witch, the albino twins, and the local lodge’s well-hidden secrets, the strange events in Old Mill, NC, are pretty much out of control. Only Cletus, ordained minister, common law attorney, journalist, private investigator, and jack of all trades can draw together the people and resources necessary to set things right. The question is, can he do it before it’s too late? 

This edition includes the short story "The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs & the Fruit of Another Vine". Also included is the author's introduction to The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs & the Crazy Case of Foreman James, as well as an excerpt from that novel!

Habit forming

I recently read my first David Naill Wilson book, and enjoyed it very much. Then I saw this book, offbeat weird southern noir style horror? Yes, please. Cletus J Diggs didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to dive back in to more of Wilson’s work.

Fun listen

Fun characters in a well written story. Differenth enough to be fairly fresh. Now jeep n mind that this is not nor did it claim to be a literary masterpiece, but If you want to hear a well crafted and well told good time of a tale, then give it a go.
I have not looked yet but I hope there arw more tales of the not quite right reverend Cletus.
Narration worked great for this story. Well done.

More funny scares from the Rev.

David Neill Wilson brings us more adventures of the right Rev. Cletus Digs and he doesn't disappoint. A great quick read for a summer's day.

Not for me

I was given this book for free from audiobook boom and asked to leave an unbiased review for the author and narrator. I thought the story was a bit boring. I would have preferred more about the Pagans and less Cletus and his friends sitting around or driving around. The story is supposed to be about the body that was found and the story surrounding it I thought, but there wasn’t much on it. The narrator’s voice is very pleasant, but maybe too pleasant. Although he did attempt a good production, inflections and all he made no attempt to do various character voices so it was annoying trying to figure out who was speaking and his voice was so mellow that it was boring.

3 generations intwined

the story opens has a camp fire horror story but developed into a story of secret and horror that simply fisher learns the dark past of ancestry and how it links to current events.

I wasn't scared but I was intrigued of the worldbuilding that was golthic turn southern style.
