Deep in the backwoods of South Georgia, eighteen-year-old Maya narrowly escapes a savage end. The victim of a vast human-trafficking operation managed out of Mexico, she had the misfortune to discover the dark plans of a high-ranking client. Her fate seemed sealed, until Leonard Moye, a lonely eccentric who doesn't suffer fools or tolerate trespassers, takes the young woman under his protection. Both bearing the scars from personal tragedies, they soon develop a bond that makes them, as a pair, a formidable foe, even for hardened criminals and professional scumbags. Maya knows too much and the old man lives on land in the crosshairs of narco machinations. As the heavies seek to finish the job, they find they may be no match for the resourcefulness of a disturbed old man and a cunning young woman. Southern Noir at its finest, The Devil Himself, sizzles with page-burning suspense and bewitching characters. Farris has created a new classic in country noir, a novel of wicked, gritty action and heartfelt redemption. First published in France with enormous critical acclaim and winning multiple literary awards, The Devil Himself will mark Peter Farris as a major crime writer in America as well.… (mais)

Story of a reclusive man with lots of secrets who takes in a runaway girl who has been abused, prostituted, and almost murdered by a far-reaching criminal organization starts out well, but loses a bit of steam and plausibility as it proceeds. The audiobook would also benefit from a narrator who knows how to pronounce "kudzu" the proper Southern way. A few great scenes make up for the haphazard narrative, which never quite succeeds in letting us get to know some of the key players, although the two main characters are well-portrayed. ( )
