"A courtroom thriller with vividly imagined and deftly rendered characters." - Publishers Weekly

Reclusive hermit and ex-hunter W. T. Halvorsen is a scapegoat for the crimes of the rich and the powerful in remote Hemlock County, Pennsylvania. Dragged into a courtroom in shackles on federal terrorism charges, he must convince a judge and jury that everything they believe about their local government and their town's chief employer is a lie. His only friends outside the courtroom are a young beautician and a mentally disturbed teenage boy. But saving his life could cost them their own.

An epic tale of crime, corruption and environmental destruction, and of one honest man's fight for the truth.

About the Author

David Poyer's least-known body of work may be his Hemlock County series, set in a Faulknerian imaginary county in Western Pennsylvania. The first was THE DEAD OF WINTER (Tor Books); the second, WINTER IN THE HEART (Forge Books). AS THE WOLF LOVES WINTER was an alternate selection of The Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club. THUNDER ON THE MOUNTAIN, a historical novel set in Depression-era Pennsylvania, with Forge Books/St Martin's Press, received starred reviews from all three major reviewing agencies. Poyer teaches in the MA/MFA Creative Writing program at Wilkes University.
