CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, US, June 26, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — River Grove Books announces the upcoming release of King of Nod by Scott Fad. An epic, sweeping Southern Gothic, King of Nod (Trade Paper, ISBN: 9781632996640, $34.95, 738 pp., 6 x 9) will be available wherever fine books are sold on October 10, 2023.

Acclaimed novelist Scott Fad delivers a masterful and mesmerizing tale in King of Nod, a spellbinding story about the past, the present—and how some things never die.

About King of Nod: Sweetpatch Island, South Carolina, 1971. For young Boo Taylor it’s a land of lush salt marshes and sun-soaked beaches, rich in history and folklore—yet steeped in superstition and hiding a terrifying secret.

After twenty years of self-imposed exile, Boo is summoned home to Sweetpatch upon news of his father’s strange death to face the friends and enemies of his youth, including his long-forsaken love. It seems everything he ran away from—the bigotry, the violence, the betrayal—has been buried under a modern landscape of golf courses and luxury hotels. Yet his homecoming reawakens the ancient forces that haunt the island and seek to right a centuries-old crime.

Scott Fad’s Southern Gothic masterwork, King of Nod, layers time and secrets in an intricate pattern of half-truths and glimpses of redemption to unravel the island’s great mystery—and its inexorable connection to Boo’s own fate.

King of Nod has garnered high critical acclaim:

“An exceptional, superbly-crafted novel.” —Kirkus Reviews

“An extraordinary book.” –Foreword Reviews

“Spellbinding” – Suspense Magazine

“Destined to become a classic.” – Fresh Fiction

A seamless, suspenseful, spellbinding tale about ghosts, betrayal, redemption, and secrets, King of Nod is exquisite. With its brilliant plotting, enchanting cast of characters, and to-die-for setting, King of Nod will grab readers and not let go.

Scott Fad is an award-winning novelist, an accomplished artist and a retired health plan executive. The father of two is also a former bouncer, bricklayer, boxer, blackbelt and marathoner. Originally from Newark Delaware and a graduate of the University of Delaware, he now writes, paints, fishes and runs a consulting business from his home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
