“Potter’s Woods,” a novel set in the north Georgia mountains, features two interconnected mysteries: the 1866 murder of Patrick Potter, the original owner of the 40-acre Potter’s Woods; and the 2019 murder of an environmental activist whose book Paving Gaia threatens to block the development of the old-growth forest.
The action develops from this email sent to the community of Witherston:
By midnight on Wednesday, December 25, exactly 3,000 of Francis Hearty Withers’s beneficiaries—that’s 75 percent of Witherston’s population—must each contribute $5,000 of their inheritance to the Indigenous Peoples Reparations Initiative, or Mayor Rhonda Rather will die, along with other beneficiaries who do not contribute.
All of Witherston’s current residents benefitted financially from a crime against the Cherokee Indians that occurred in the early nineteenth century. The theme of “Potter’s Woods” is the rectification of the general injustice perpetrated by the founders of Witherston against the Cherokees who had occupied the land for a thousand years and the specific injustice perpetrated against Patrick Potter. The story is told through narration, dialogue, documents, and articles and letters in OnlineWitherston, the local news source.

Ex-superintendent Fabia Havard is struggling with civilian life when a local girl is found dead.
Out walking near the rain-swelled river running past her small Welsh town, she comes across the body of Amber Morgan. Fabia’s police training tells her instantly that the death is the result of foul play. But no longer in the force, all she can do is call it in.
Yet she has mixed feelings when she discovers it is her former colleague, Matt Lambert, newly promoted to chief inspector, who will head the investigation into the girl’s death.
Despite this, having known the victim, and bored with her new job as an illustrator, Fabia can’t help probing into the murder. However, her inquiries further upset the quiet of the town. Not least her neighbour, busybody Rhona Griffiths, who was seen arguing with the victim the day before her death.
Fabia’s activity bothers Matt Lambert but time and time again Fabia’s instincts are proved right. He can’t help leaning on her in order to progress the investigation but that will also involve confronting why she left the force years ago.
Can they put their differences aside and work together to bring the perpetrator to justice despite Fabia’s painful past being brought up again? Or will Fabia’s moonlighting get her into further danger?
