Book Review: The Not Quite Right Reverend

I recently had the pleasure of reading The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs and the Currently Accepted Habits of Nature by David Niall Wilson. Mr. Wilson has outdone himself with this one. Excellent pacing, memorable characters and a creation (or re-creation?) of environment so three dimensional, it almost had me checking for ticks as we left the swamp.


When Cletus J. Diggs gets a visit from his buddy Jasper and learns about the dead man sticking boot-first out of the fishing hole, he has no idea what it will lead to. How could he?

Old Mill is famous for a lot of things, good fishing, barbecue, over-sized satellite dishes and disappearing beer; it is not known for genetic research, ancient rituals, or alien abduction. From the moment Cletus and Sheriff Bob drag the corpse from the fishing hole to the final moments of terror, the action is non-stop, tense, and filled with surprises.

Between the Reverend Dozier and his church, the swamp witch, the albino twins, and the local lodge's well-hidden secrets, the strange events in Old Mill, NC are pretty much out of control. Only Cletus, ordained minister, common law attorney, journalist, private investigator and jack of all trades can draw together the people and resources necessary to set things right. The question is, can he do it before it's too late?

This book has something for everyone, comedy, horror, adventure, action, but most of all, it is brimming with intrigue and the promise of things to come. David Niall Wilson delivers. I highly recommend it to one and all.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
