Bull Mountain
by Brian Panowich




Overview -
Winner of the ITW Thriller Award for Best First Novel

From a remarkable voice in Southern fiction comes a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance.

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.

In a sweeping narrative spanning decades and told from alternating points of view, the novel brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of the mountain and its inhabitants: forbidding, loyal, gritty, and ruthless. A story of family--the lengths men will go to protect it, honor it, or in some cases destroy it--Bull Mountain is an incredibly assured debut that heralds a major new talent in fiction.

"Panowich stamps words on the page as if they've been blasted from the barrel of a shotgun, and as with a shotgun blast, no one is safe from the scattered fragments of history that impale the people of Bull Mountain."--Wiley Cash, New York Times-bestselling author of This Dark Road to Mercy
