It begins quietly on a balmy Southern night in Savannah as some locals gather at Bo Peep’s, one of the town’s favourite watering holes. Within an hour, a man will be murdered and his companion will have ‘disappeared’.
An unlikely detective, Morgana Musgrove, doyenne of Savannah society, is called upon to unravel the mystery of these crimes. Morgana is an imperious, demanding, and conniving woman, whose four grown children are weary of her schemes. But one by one she inveigles them into helping with her investigation, and soon the family uncovers some terrifying truths – truths that will rock Savannah’s power structure to its core.

Moving from the homeless encampments that ring the city to the stately homes of Savannah’s elite, The Kingdoms of Savannah brilliantly depicts the underbelly of a city with a dark history and the strangely mesmerizing dysfunction of a complex family.

Reviews

A novel about a place and the people in that place that reads like a thriller but could only have been written by someone who knows Savannah and its stories intimately and wants them to be told. It's the apotheosis of Southern Gothic Noir
Neil Gaiman
A rich, sprawling, dazzling mystery that's also a journey into history - of a nation, of a city, and of one unforgettably dysfunctional family. I savored every page
Riley Sager
Compelling characters and vivid settings make this impressive Southern narrative stand out among the best . . . not to be missed
Karin Slaughter
I've never read a mystery novel any finer than this one. It impeccably fulfills every requirement of the genre - idiosyncratic heroes and villains, exotic milieus, ugly secrets, surprising twists, gratifying turns . . . all depicted in gorgeous prose. The Kingdoms of Savannah is utterly satisfying
Kurt Andersen
Deeply rooted in Savannah's at times horrific history, yet looking hopefully toward the future, this provocative page-turner is sure to enthrall a broad spectrum of readers. Green is writing at the top of his game
