Backlund’s gripping mystery debut Among the Dead is
sure to be a knock-out.
Ex-SBI agent Rachel Carver must hunt a group of killers
on her own before time runs out in this gripping debut.
Former North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation agent
Rachel Carver blames herself for the collateral death of an
innocent woman in her last case. Unable to accept her
superior’s attempts to cover up the incident, she turned in
her badge. But when a former partner asks her to consult on
a new murder case, she reluctantly agrees, traveling to a
small, remote mountain community, where she’s tasked with
leading a group of inexperienced detectives on a hunt for
the killer. The trek has hardly begun when what seems to be
the act of a loner proves to be much more as Rachel's team
comes under attack—and a detective is killed in the fallout.
Now that the stakes have risen, Rachel’s old employers at
the SBI step in to take over the investigation. But Rachel,
convinced they are on the wrong track, continues to work the
case alone. And just as she delves into the town’s past, she
discovers a secret history that connects the victims—one
that makes her the target of a man who would kill to keep it
