This Madness of the Heart
Blair Yeatts, author
Bad religion is deadly. So professor Miranda Lamden discovers in This Madness of the Heart. Eastern Kentucky's dark hollers offer fertile soil for shady evangelist Jasper Jarboe as he beguiles a small mining town with his snake-oil charm. A miasma of evil paralyzes the tiny community when he invokes fears of the vengeful spirit of an antebellum voodoo mambo, and only Miranda can halt its spread.
