A Killing in the Hills, Paperback

A Killing in the Hills Paperback

Part of the Bell Elkins series


Pulitzer-prize winner, Julia Keller's first crime novel - the first in a series featuring prosecuting attorney Bell Elkins - set in the beautiful crime-ridden town of Acker's Gap.

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, visitors see only its stunning natural beauty.

But for those living there it's a different story. The mountain roads harbour secret places, perfect for making the prescription drugs that tempt its desperately poor.

Bell Elkins left a broken teenager, savaged by a past she couldn't forget.

But, as prosecuting attorney for Raythune County, Bell is back and determined to help clean up the only home she has ever known. As winter sets in and her daughter is witness to a shocking triple murder, Bell finds her family in danger.

Can she uncover the truth before her world is destroyed again?
