"Nobody writes Southern better than DePoy, and short of medical school, you won't find a better description of the aftereffects of coma anywhere." - Kirkus Reviews
"The unusual narrative technique that combines whodunit with more unconventional material from the unconscious provides a refreshing take on family history as mystery." - Publishers Weekly

In this book, Fever Devilin is killed by an intruder. He doesn’t stay dead - thanks to an emergency medical team and his fiance - but he does slip into a months-long coma. When he comes out of it, there are two things he now knows: that he’s been dreaming about the legendary Paris café scene of the 1920s and that his would-be killer was after a blue tin box, containing a photo of what Fever believes to be an angel. As Fever struggles to recover, there is a would-be killer who must be found while there's still time.
In no way was the ending gave away, so the mystery was well kept until he was ready to reveal it. At that point the story became a bit confused, as if the writer was done with it and anxious to do something else. That said, I did order the first book in what is a series (as he reused some characters from earlier books within this one). I did not feel I missed anything by not reading the earlier books, so no worries there.
