Overview

Gabriel Hill stumbles home to find a mutilated corpse on his porch. A man who had beat him earlier. After puking, he finds a makeshift animal sacrifice behind his house. The next day, his life got complicated. His home is broken into. He's beaten by a stranger. Seduced by another. Threatened unless he can find the valuables his dead brother supposedly sent to him. Ignoring advice to run, Gabe searches for answers. He finds a brother unlike the drug addicted young man he forgot. He finds new threats, new enemies, more dead bodies, a courage he didn't think existed, a love that he didn't expect and a truth that he feared.

"R. Thomas Brown writes like grain alcohol burning, blue and hotter than shit. In HILL COUNTRY, the story barrels down country highways towards characters hard as nails and rough-and-tumble as they come. It is one of the best and freshest new entries into crime fiction today." - John Hornor Jacobs, author THIS DARK EARTH and SOUTHERN GODS

"R. Thomas Brown's HILL COUNTRY is a demonic Tilt-A-Whirl of murder, mayhem, and betrayal that straddles the line between crime and horror. Lean, fast-paced, and unflinching, HILL COUNTRY will crawl under your skin and stick with you long after you've turned the final page." - Chris F. Holm, author of DEAD HARVEST and THE WRONG GOODBYE

"In HILL COUNTRY, R. Thomas Brown has written a tale full of passion and human fallibility. Characters run from broken to brutal, from raw as an open wound to cold and dark as a winter midnight. When you start this tale, plan on not putting it down till you're done, and don't forget to breathe." - Bill Cameron, author of COUNTY LINE
