Set in the author’s childhood neighborhood, Devondale explores the secrets every neighborhood holds.
It was always there. Thirty years ago, Carter Springer left behind Devondale, a sleepy neighborhood in Lexington, Kentucky, for a big-city life in Atlanta. But he didn’t just leave behind his family—he also left behind his friends, a group the adults of the neighborhood once referred to as the Devondale Five. They were legends back then.
They ran the neighborhood. They were inseparable. Until Carter abandoned them. It never left. He’s long set aside the memories he and his friends made on those winding streets. But when Richie, another member of the Five, dies under mysterious circumstances, Carter knows he must return to Devondale and pay his respects. It’s been waiting. Richie’s death raises more than just questions for the old gang. It also raises a lot of ghosts, turning the sleepy neighborhood from Carter’s memories into a nightmare. One he might never escape from. And now that he’s back… it’s hungry.
