What is a Georgia mountain town to do when “Robin Hood” threatens to kill its mayor and a citizen or two if three thousand Witherstonians don’t donate $5,000 each to rectify the theft of gold and land from the Cherokees two hundred years ago?
Some folks donate. Others take their chances.
One person dies, in Potter’s Woods. The mayor survives an attempt on her life.
Police Chief Mev Arroyo and her sons Jorge and Jaime discover that Potter’s Woods, occupied by the Cherokee people for a thousand years until the 1832 Georgia Land Lottery, is the site of two murders. And that Robin Hood, “feared by the bad, loved by the good,” is connected to both.
Death in Potter’s Woods is Betty Jean Craige’s fifth Witherston Murder Mystery.
