    Under Tower Peak is a terrific read if you love thrillers, the Eastern Sierra of California or just plain good writing! Luckily I love all three and found this to be one of those rare books I wanted to read straight through without putting down.
    Paul creates a dynamic sense of place in which to cultivate the novel’s action and characters. Besides making you feel like you are right there in those glorious mountains, you also gain a healthy knowledge of contemporary cowboy life. Tommy Smith, the main character, is someone you will want to get to know. As aficionado of mystery series, I’m hoping for a sequel!
    Do yourself a favor and read this wonderful first novel.

    I live in the Eastern Sierra so I was impressed with Paul's knowledge of the area and the cowboy culture. The descriptions of the mountains, the horses, and the men are spot on. The novel is fast paced and full of surprises, many that completely take you by surprise. It definitely has it's dark moments, violence, and cruel characters but of course that's what make it compelling. The protagonist, Tommy Smith, is one that should definitely come back in another novel.

    What an awesome story!

    A great story, told exceedingly well. Beautiful back country, brought to life. A rippingly great book. Did not want this book to end. Went way too fast, as was hard to put down. The action built hard and thunderous like a rushing, tumbling, California High Sierra whitewater river. It grabs you and carries you, unrelenting and pell-mell, all the way through to the end, with twists and turns you don't, yea can't possibly, expect. And no, it's not about rafting. It's about pack horses and hard work. Dirt and sweat. Beauty and treachery. Quick thinking and decisive action. Outthinking and outmaneuvering a relentless and cunning enemy. A rural-beats-the-pants-off-city-anytime tale with a strong, authentic, work-a-day, home-grown hero who uses his upbringing and his military training to the utmost. You become attached to the characters and want them so desperately to succeed. A sequel, please, sir. More, more! Nice cover art, too.

    Okay story,

    The book should have had more suspense, not what I would expect from a thriller.
