Nate is a Greenville native and so has some challenges adapting to the Lowcountry. The two are very good at their job uncovering long-buried secrets and small town scandals even as the challenges thrown at them become increasingly difficult with each successive novel. They also have to deal with quirky extended family that frequently makes it almost impossible to concentrate on cases. Writing in an authentic southern voice, Susan M. Boyer has a deep understanding of the mannerisms and talk of the Southerners including the music and cadence of speech that she expertly puts on the page.
