Smuggling shipments of wild rabbits from Kentucky to South Carolina doesn’t sound like the crime of the century, but the author uses it as the core of this Southern comedy. Along the way, Bill Gulledge, the unemployed-college-graduate-turned smuggler, falls in love with Rye Cotton, the country-grown daughter of the rabbit supplier. Ingram lives in the Charleston area. This is his first novel.
