Cypress Grove (paperback)
The small town where Turner moved is one of America's lost places, half way between Memphis and forever. That makes it a perfect hideaway. A place where you can bury your past and escape the pain of human contact, where you are left alone unless you want company, where conversation happens when you have something to say. There was no major crime to speak of until Sheriff Bates arrived on Turner's porch with a bottle of Wild Turkey and a problem: The body of a drifter has been found - brutally and ritualistically murdered...Book one of the Turner trilogy by James Sallis.
