Love it when a place is as much a character in the book as any person!

Awesome story - made better by the fact that it's all true, yet all comes together as though it were fiction. Check it out. High school reading level, high school+ appropriate content.

John Berendt's "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" is much more famous... (& yes, it's wonderful!) ...but "City of Falling Angels" is my favorite. There are similarities between the two: the story of a modern day event, intertwined with a bit of history, a bit of gossip and quick, compelling word sketches of interesting locals; this time in Venice rather than Savannah.
