The true story of terror in the Pennsylvania mountains, Deadly Pursuit follows law enforcement officials on their hunt for a mysterious mountain man responsible for a number of attacks committed over a two-year span near the small town of Shade Gap. The case escalates when a woman is abducted, sending police on a seven-day manhunt through the mountainous country that proves fatal for several people involved. The case was the inspiration for the movie Cry in the Wild: The Taking of Peggy Ann, starring Megan Fellows and David Morse.

He was a wonderful man. I was glad I got to meet him before he passed. This book is excellent since I grew up in the area where this happened years later but it was one story everyone knew about. I would recommend this to anyone.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. Of all the true crime stories that I have read this is by far the best.
