"Chenault's short but powerful gothic work blends the best elements of folklore, horror, the blues, and archival history in resonant and lyrical prose."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
In a neighborhood known as the Bramble Patch, the Lyons family endures despite poverty, racism, and the ghoulish appetites of an underworld kingpin called the Barghest.
As the years pass and the neighborhood falls into decay, along with the town that surrounds it, what's left of the Bramble Patch will learn the saying is true: These bones are gonna rise again.
