Overview

Killer bear, Appalachian psycho, Yankee gold . . .

He's on the trail of something big . . .

Deep in the Great Smokies, a huge black bear kills a child at a campground, and a hunt begins in a quiet mountain community where such threats are rare. Wade, an outdoorsman and backwoods columnist, is quickly deputized to find and slay the massive beast terrorizing tourists and locals alike.

While on the trail, he is wounded by a pot-grower's booby trap and stalked by Junior, an authentic Appalachian psychopath. Two fellow deputies are gunned down, and rumors of buried Civil War gold surface. Wade gets unexpected assistance from a wannabe writer whose gifts prove helpful even after mushroom trances and spiritual quests-enhanced by a Minnesota Vikings horn-helmet.

The discovery of a mysterious doll ties into grisly murders from the past, and Wade meets a tough, old Marine with a puzzling treasure map. All the while, the looming threat of Junior's lethal lunacy stalks Wade and his colorful allies.

From start to finish, Wally Avett has your undivided attention as he weaves a complex story in a town as docile a Mayberry. I will not spoil the suspense, but I will say there are bears, a Viking-horned-helmet-wearing Indian, an albino savant and one scary druggie. FIVE STARS! Highly recommended!

One of my pet peeves on reading a story set in the South is the overuse of stereotypes. This whole story is driven around nothing but stereotypes. From the overuse of the Southern slang (except by the main character who is perceived to be smarter than everyone else), the character names, and the settings (trailers). Then you couple that with interspersed racism that doesn't really have a bearing on the story. Finally, you pull it all together with no resolution of the original mystery. What this really turns out to be is a collection of barber shop jokes and coffee shop stories that have been merged into a cohesive story. I will drop one spoiler here, there is no Bigfoot (Yeti, Sasquatch, whatever). This is a story without a goal. Instead, it is a rambling tale that serves to perplex more than to culminate.
