A Novel of Rural Noir
When Transom Schultz goes missing shortly after returning to his tightly knit hometown of Fallen Mountains, Pennsylvania, his secrets are not the only ones that threaten to emerge.
Something terrible happened seventeen years ago. Red, the sheriff, is haunted by it. Possum, the victim, wants revenge. In the present, Transom’s treacherous land dealings threaten to devastate the whole town, his childhood friend Chase most of all. And Laney worries her one thoughtless mistake with Transom could shatter everything she’s built.
An unnerving thriller of small-town roots, where loyalty, love, trust, and family can trap a person on a path of tragedy.
“In Fallen Mountains, Kimi Cunningham Grant has painted an intense and engaging portrait of characters driven by—and bound by—the secrets of their pasts. It is an absorbing mystery as well as a gracefully layered story of death and loss in a small town, with a haunting conclusion that will linger with the reader long after they turn that last page.” —Allen Eskens, USA Today bestselling author of The Life We Bury and The Shadows We Hide
