WHEN THESE MOUNTAINS BURN
The acclaimed author and "remarkably gifted storyteller" (the Charlotte Observer) returns here with a fierce and tender tale of a father, an addict, a lawman, and the explosive events that come to unite them.
After a workplace accident left him out of a job and in pain, Denny Rattler has spent years chasing his next high. He supports his habit through careful theft, following strict rules that keep him under the radar and out of jail. But when faced with opportunities too easy to resist, Denny makes two choices that change everything.
And for months, the Drug Enforcement Agency has been chasing the drug supply in the mountains to no avail, when a lead - just one word - sets one agent on a path to crack the case wide open. But he'll need help from the most unexpected quarter.
As chance brings together these men from different sides of a relentless epidemic, each may come to find that his opportunity for redemption lies with the others.
