When U.S. Marshal Helen Morrissey is tasked with collecting a fugitive bank robber from a remote town in the Sierra Nevadas, she braces for a rough trip. After all, with a name like Kill Devil Falls, her destination must be a real hellhole.
Turns out that it's worse than she imagined. Much worse. After barely surviving a white-knuckle drive in what she suspects is a sabotaged car, she's stuck in a virtual ghost town populated by a handful of oddballs and outcasts. But it's not until her prisoner turns up dead that Helen realizes she's in real trouble. There are secrets buried below the surface of Kill Devil Falls. Secrets worth killing for.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Set in an 'almost abandoned' mining town-- this novel is a form of the Locked Room Mystery-- with a cast of about 10 characters and a "whodunnit" murder. It is a suspenseful page turner, however the author keeps the story fun with the unique actors: two bank robbers, three hillbillies, a retired Hollywood couple, a father-son sheriff team and a US Marshall to save them all (hopefully.) The story gets moving quickly and doesn't slow down until it reaches a satisfying conclusion. Descriptions such as "adrenaline ride" and "pulse pounding" actually apply here!
