Abstract:

Harry Sterling has lost much in recent years: his brother, his marriage, his job, his self-esteem. A teaching post at a small college in northern Florida has given him an opportunity to reevaluate his life and reconnect with his teenage son. But Harry is above all a reporter, so when he stumbles upon a rumor about physicist Charles Ziegart--world-famous for a breakthrough discovery in electrical conductivity--he feels compelled to investigate. Could it be true that the highly respected scientist stole the credit for the "Ziegart Effect" from one of his students? Harry's pursuit of the story leads him into extremely unlikely and colorful company--the notorious Purple Lady, the fortune teller Madame Dupree, and Miss Baby Thorpe. He also meets the intriguing if peculiar Maggie Roth, a short-order cook with an affinity for the woods, who has suffered terrible losses of her own
