Detailed book overview

Non Series


A woman’s head emerges from a frozen mountain lake; a cyclist disappears from a national park without a trace while a young girl is abducted from the fields as she looks after her goats.

Bodies are discovered in West Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee. They have been slit open, shorn of their hair, with fillings removed from their teeth.

Although the police and FBI install checkpoints and roadblocks cross the Appalachian’s, Sheriff Wayne believes that thinks they are looking in all the wrong places.

Certainly no stranger to the mountains, the Sherrif summed it best when he said: “Consider the man that comes down out of the wilderness to kill. Now that would be one dangerous son of a bitch.”
