High summer in Acker's Gap, West Virginia--but no one's
enjoying the rugged natural landscape. Not while a killer
stalks the small town and its hard-luck inhabitants. County
prosecutor Bell Elkins and Sheriff Nick Fogelsong are
stymied by a murderer who seems to come and go like smoke on
the mountain. At the same time, Bell must deal with the
return from prison of her sister, Shirley--who, like Bell,
carries the indelible scars of a savage past.
Summer of the Dead, the third Julia Keller mystery
chronicling the journey of Bell Elkins and her return to her
Appalachian hometown, we also meet Lindy Crabtree--a coal
miner's daughter with dark secrets of her own, secrets that
threaten to explode into even more violence.
Gap is a place of loveliness and brutality, of isolation and
fierce attachments--a place where the dead rub shoulders
with the living, and demand their due.
