Carolina Fire: The Sam Larkin Trilogy Book 3 (The Sam Larkin Series)

Carolina Fire is a disturbing chronicle of murder and shame set in the lowcountry of South Carolina. The book is not a redneck, alcoholic wife-beating, mamma-got-run-over-by-a-pickup-truck southern novel, nor is it about money, politics or emerging ghosts from the past.

Anger, obsession and familial disintegration create an atmosphere in which evil thrives as a driving force. Although murder is central to the plot, it is the destruction of a human soul and its causes that resonates throughout the novel. As D.H. Lawrence said: “To suffer in one’s whole self is so great a violation that it is not to be endured.”

Sam Larkin is a complex paradox of a man, once again drawn into a situation not of his own making. A former wildlife law-enforcement officer, unjustly imprisoned ex-con, teacher and artist, Larkin has come to the lowcountry to find a peace that is sorely lacking in his life; however, as a friend from his past tells him, through his loyalty to friends and to those he loves, trouble seems to seek him out.

Despite his past, nothing could prepare Larkin for what he has to face when a former colleague, Robin Streeter, a divorced secondary school psychologist , dies in a house fire. Originally classified as an accident, it is later determined to be murder. Having worked with and been friends with the woman, Larkin’s sense of morality and loyalty compel him to find the killer.

Covington County detective, Campbell Gardner is assigned the case. Knowing Larkin’s association with the victim, Gardner enlists his help in the investigation. Like Larkin, Gardner has his own devils to deal with. He is not liked by his fellow officers because of his expertise, big city background and affluent lifestyle, as well as the mystery surrounding his arrival in Covington from the police department in Atlanta, Georgia.

The killer’s paranoia results in a second murder, the shooting of Larkin’s best friend and a vicious attack on Denny Layne Kimbrell, an art gallery owner, friend of Robin Streeter’s and an admirer of Larkin’s work and the man himself. Though their relationship in the beginning is professional, violence and Robin Streeter’s death give birth to a more personal bond.

Larkin not only becomes immersed in his work with Gardner, but is also considered a suspect by sheriff’s deputy Willy Brister, an alcoholic and disgruntled man, who is obsessed with getting justice at any cost for the dead woman. He does not believe anyone who has served time in prison can ever be rehabilitated, which makes Larkin a prime target. The investigation results in a violent and shocking conclusion that reveals a profound and disturbing motive that has destroyed his spirit.

With a cast of vivid supporting characters, the lyrical descriptions of the natural beauty of the lowcountry, and the exploration of the fragility of the human soul and its demons, the plot converges to its revelatory and violent conclusion.

City Water, City Life: Water and the Infrastructure of Ideas in Urbanizing Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago

City Water, City Life: Water and the Infrastructure of Ideas in Urbanizing Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago

A city is more than a massing of citizens, a layout of buildings and streets, or an arrangement of political, economic, and social institutions. It is also an infrastructure of ideas that are a support for the beliefs, values, and aspirations of the people who created the city. In City Water, City Life, celebrated historian Carl Smith explores this concept through an insightful examination of the development of the first successful waterworks systems in Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago between the 1790s and the 1860s. By examining the place of water in the nineteenth-century consciousness, Smith illuminates how city dwellers perceived themselves during the great age of American urbanization. But City Water, City Life is more than a history of urbanization. It is also a refreshing meditation on water as a necessity, as a resource for commerce and industry, and as an essential—and central—part of how we define our civilization.
