Description

Pine Hill had always been a sleepy town in the foothills of the Appalachians until mill owner Jed Norton dies in his mistress' bed. At first it looks like a heart attack, but an autopsy reveals something far more shocking. Georgia Bound is a heart-stopping tale of murder and mayhem with an ending that's sheer surprise. Jack Monahan, a hard-boiled reporter who doesn’t believe in the supernatural, finds himself entangled in the eeriest murder mystery of his career, one that nearly gets him killed and challenges all his beliefs in science and rational behavior. As the bodies begin dropping like flies in a cold snap, Monahan’s quest to find out what’s going on takes him on a wild odyssey from North Georgia to West Africa, South America, Italy and the South Carolina lowcountry. The suspects include a Gullah witch doctor with magical powers, the dead man’s long-abused wife, a rival mill owner who breeds race horses and man-eating piranhas, the dead man’s vengeful mistress, the corrupt sheriff, the local drug dealer and a famous televangelist who’s involved with the dead mill owner’s wife.

About the author

I grew up in New Jersey and began writing in my teens. At 20, I hitchhiked to California and eventually landed a job as West Coast music writer for GQ Scene, an Esquire magazine for teenage boys. Later, I traveled extensively in Mexico and Central and South America, writing for stateside magazines, teaching English as a second language and trying to stay out of the way of drug dealers, revolutionaries and rogue governments. A lot of my fiction is drawn from those days. In 1992 I started my own business magazine, which I sold six years ago so I could get back to my first love — writing fiction. Georgia Bound is the latest effort in my journey.
