Local Author Roger Pinckney Released Latest Novel, “Washed in Blood”

Published

on

Evening Post Books today announced the publication of local author Roger Pinckney’s latest novel, Washed in the Blood

The book tells the story of Rut (William Rutledge Elliot IV), an almost born-again Baptist lying low on a remote island, skippering a seepy old freight  barge and growing high-quality marijuana for a discerning clientele. While his chosen occupations are perilous, his life is peaceful and predictable until  he discovers a strange track in an abandoned rice field, that of an animal officially “extinct” for over a century. Ridiculed and rebuffed by Department of  Natural Resources biologists and wardens, Rut seeks the truth. But instead of setting him free, as the Good Book says, the truth sends him to jail. Butbthere are compensations: good whiskey, good smoke, and an unlikely romance with the lovely Charlotte Callahan, one of the state’s first female game wardens.

Washed in the Blood is a wild and muddy romp through the South Carolina Lowcountry, a compelling tale and an unforgettable read. The book is available in hardcover for $24.95 in area bookstores and online at www.EveningPostBooks.com.

Roger  Pinckney is the author of fifteen books of fiction and nonfiction, including Reefer Moon and Blow the Man Down, also from Evening Post Books. He lives and works on Daufuskie Island.
