Deep in the Appalachian wilderness, young Ozzie and his family are held prisoner on cursed Cherokee land. Crammed in a dilapidated shack in a guarded camp with numerous families also held hostage, he senses the sinister presence of the captors who only come in the darkness. Terrified that the chilling cries of terror within the camp are closing in, Ozzie is determined to free his family before they suffer a horrible fate.
Blake Savage, a football player who endures a career-ending injury, still aspires to become wealthy. His beloved wife supports him; though she underestimates the extent he will go to regain his former glory. When an egocentric restaurateur offers Blake fame and fortune to produce an illegal delicacy for his exclusive network of secret supper clubs, Blake enters a gilded world. But when the foodies take their first bites of the illicit delicacy, an ancient disease resurfaces, unleashing a trail of black death that threatens to consume humanity.
This shockingly real and thrilling novel weaves a rich Appalachian tapestry as it races toward its cataclysmic conclusion. Poisoned Soil brings the natural world to life, appealing to readers who like Barbara Kingsolver's agrarian prose and Garcia Marquez's magical realism.
