Wife. Mother. Leader. In this stunning sophomore novel by the author of Bull Mountain, hell hath no fury like a woman.

It’s been more than a year since a rogue government agent systematically crippled the Burroughs family’s criminal empire on Bull Mountain. Two of the brothers were left dead, and Clayton, the youngest and only surviving member of the clan, is broken and haunted by wounds that may never heal.

Just three months after the birth of her infant son, what should be the happiest days of her life soon become the darkest when Kate Burroughs realizes there is no one left to carry on the family’s legacy, and the people of Bull Mountain are looking to her for leadership. And for good reason: The wolves are circling.

One year ago, Kate survived the darkness that almost killed her husband, and she used that same darkness to avenge him. Now, in order to protect her home and preserve the birthright of the one true heir to the mountain—her infant son—Kate has to tap into that darkness again . . . but this time it would seem she’s developing a taste for it.
Brian Panowich was a touring musician for twelve years before settling in East Georgia, where he now works full-time as a firefighter. He is also the author of Bull Mountain.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Bull Mountain “[Brian Panowich] pulls off [a] daunting undertaking with astounding success . . . The storytelling is mesmerizing, with virtually every chapter set in a different timeline and focused on a single character, but the sense of immediacy carries over into each era.  And while the violence is shocking in its coldhearted brutality, it’s as aesthetically choreographed as any ballet.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review   “Panowich has crafted a satisfying and smartly constructed book whose time-shifting sequences build suspense even as they parcel out telling revelations. Once events are in full play, there’s no turning back.”—The Wall Street Journal   “[Panowich storms] onto the scene with an epic southern tale that establishes him as a new voice for southern writers. . . . An unabashed literary page-turner, Bull Mountain, takes readers along for a ride full of well timed twists and turns, and the shocking family secret that causes the inevitable climax. . . . one of the best multi-generational family sagas in years.”—Huffington Post   “You’d be hard pressed to believe Bull Mountain is the work of a debut author.  What Panowich puts together is more than a history of family, but a chronology of the violence perpetrated for nearly a century in maintaining an empire built on bootleg hooch and drugs – not in the name of power, women, or money, but of home. . . .Panowich’s Southern grit is stubborn and gets into every crevice . . . he tears apart the hardened, Southern man so popular in rural noir. Even more, he does so while maintaining that those characters have a moral, human center. “—The Los Angeles Review of Books“Brian 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. From a conflict born of violence and loyalty, Panowich brings us a cast of remarkable characters who are linked by blood but severed by duty. This is a wonderfully rich and evocative debut novel that is steeped in both the history of Appalachia and well aware of the current challenges it faces.”—Wiley Cash, New York Times-bestselling author of This Dark Road to Mercy “Brian Panowich had me at the first word of his spectacular debut novel, ‘Family,’ and he held me until the very last page.  Bull Mountain is a sprawling, gritty, violent, tribal inter-generational crime epic with a deeply rooted sense of place and an gut-punch ending I didn’t see coming.  Expect to see Bull Mountain on the short-list of many 'Best First Novel' awards.”—C. J. Box, New York Times­-bestselling author of Endangered “Holy cow, what a book!  For a multi-generational family saga, it moves like a bullet. Mr. Panowich knows his mountains, his whiskey, his dope and his meth. And boy, does he know his characters, who are drawn so vividly I can't forget them. I can't recommend this novel enough—it will thrill fans of Daniel Woodrell and Larry Brown as well as fans of Dennis Lehane and William Gay. First rate, first rate!”—Tom Franklin, New York Times-bestselling author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
