Brambleman by Jonathan Grant (Thornbriar Press, 2012) tells the supernaturally-charged story of Charlie Sherman, a down-and-out Atlanta writer who is chosen by a mysterious stranger to complete a dead professor's unfinished work. What Charlie finds is an unwieldy manuscript about the violent expulsion of more than 1,000 blacks from Forsyth County, Georgia in 1912. During the course of his work, Charlie uncovers terrible secrets involving a violent Forsyth County land grab in 1937. Due to its proximity to Atlanta, the stolen farm is now worth $25 millionand a sale is pending. Charlie is convinced (with reason) that he has been chosen as an instrument of divine vengeance, so when he finds the rightful heir to the land, he seeks to wreak justice upon the villains. His plan backfires terribly when the house he tears down is the one he lives in and the family he destroys ... is his own.
