ISBN 978-1611944051

A Governor keeping secrets. A drug lord bent on revenge. And a DEA agent out to make her case, no matter who gets hurt in the process. Once again, Carolina Slade finds herself caught in a web of lies and murder, only this time the case involves a Governor’s family secret, and a history of poisonous peanuts with the ability to kill.

Carolina Slade is one tough cookie. In the third book of her adventures, C. Hope Clark keeps you guessing and then leaves you wanting more with a tease at the end. Clark’s breezy conversational style goes down smooth as sweet tea as Slade winds her way through the mystery. Any story that starts at a peanut festival, weaves around a powerful Southern politician and ends up at a nudist colony is my kind of book! Clark’s words and settings conjure up cold beer, a bowl of shrimp & grits and a low country sunset…a perfect southern mix and a perfect southern mystery! ~Cliff Yeargin, The Jake Eliam ChickenBone Mysteries

Carolina Slade is the real deal - Southern charm, a steely determination, and a vulnerability she'll never admit to. Slade is at her absolute best in C. Hope Clark's Palmetto Poison so hold on for the ride! –Lynn Chandler-Willis, best selling author and winner of the 2013 Minotaur Books/PWA Best First Private Eye Novel Competition
