Bookworming: Uwharrie

Uwharrie, Eugene Pfaff, Michael Causey, **
I went into this one thinking it would be a mystery, but it's actually a horror story. While I suspect it would make a pretty decent B-movie, as a novel it never quite gels. There isn't enough characterization to give the jeopardy weight, and not enough actual plot to move the story on its own. It has a few good set pieces and some local color, but I would only recommend it if the jacket blurb sounds like it would be directly in line with your tastes.
