by Kimi Cunningham Grant
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.
