DARK RIVER is a stand-on-its-own sequel to AT THE RIVER’S EDGE and the latest book in the Mountain Mystery Series. Emily Edwards and James Wolsey return to chase down another killer haunting the town of Sunset Peak.
Professor Adam Parker, a renowned Civil War historian, disappears from his mountain home while on sabbatical researching lost war treasures. A shattered kitchen window and filaments from a Taser found inside Parker’s home indicate foul play.
Emily Edwards, a strong-willed, gun-toting mountain woman, and James Wolsey, her brave and supportive partner, seek clues to the kidnapping of their close friend. Frustrated with the lack of progress by state and local law enforcement, the young couple launches a parallel investigation into Parker’s disappearance.
Several suspects surface as the search for the 68-year-old professor intensifies, but it’s a race to find lost Civil War gold that leads to the New River and will determine who lives and who dies.
