Title: Bull Mountain
Author: Brian Panowich
Stars: 4 out of 5
An unusual tale told from the viewpoint of the various characters involved in the story. It builds very nicely and has an excellent, and unexpected, twist at the end. I found it easy to read and finished the book in an afternoon.
I have rated this book 4 stars.
I was given this book by Alexander Buchanan, from Scotland, while aboard the CMV vessel Magellan on an around the world cruise.
Thank you Frank
Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made its home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family’s criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction.
