Perry's newest book, Mammoth, is a suspenseful mystery novel that takes place in Mammoth View, California.
The news hits Mammoth View, California, early on a summer morning: there’s been a massacre at one of the campsites outside town. It’s not clear what happened, but it’s obviously bad. And it’s not over. Police Chief Kenneth Hicks and his deputy set off into the woods to investigate.
As residents panic and head out of town, the attack appears to be the perfect coincidence for Billy Lane. Looking for the biggest score of his career, he’s targeted the local bank. But the robbery does not go well – and the aftermath gets even worse as Billy as his conspirators must try to come up with a new escape plan when they run into a gridlock of townspeople fleeing for their lives.
Over the next twenty-four hours, chaos descends on Mammoth View. Billy will have to find deep wells of courage and ingenuity to retain his freedom. His daughter Tori, also running for her life, will discover she’s much stronger than she ever knew. Local police chief Hicks will face his past personal failures – and his present professional ones.
All the while, the investigation will lead inexorably to what really happened outside of town, but those touched by the event will never be the same.
