Adeline Connor was the Devil Mountain Killer’s final victim. After she was gunned down, the murderer disappeared and the killing spree ended.

But this town doesn’t want an outsider digging up old business. And as Blake gets deeper into the case, it starts to become clear that the murders didn’t ju st stop fifteen years ago.

The killer is on the hunt again.

Travel Guide

Bethany, Georgia

Some places never want to be on the map at all.

Bethany, in Georgia is on it for all the wrong reasons. Normally a small community which keeps itself to itself, and likes to keep outsiders out, it’s now infamous as being a killing site. There is a small town called Bethany in real life but the one in the book is of course fictional!

Devil Mountain is the mountain range nearby and the crime of nine murders in the area gives the killer the name of The Devil Mountain Killer. Adeline Connor was the last presumed victim but her body was never found. Recently her brother David believes he saw her in Atlanta and hires Carter Blake to find her. But at the same time, the killings start again in Bethany.

The setting of a small town where everybody knows everybody’s business and where the past is a place no one wants to talk about is very apt.
