The Burroughs Clan owns Bull Mountain. These North Georgia mountain folk just want to be left alone. Mostly so they can run guns and drugs without the pesky cops getting in the way. There are two Burroughs left on the mountain: one is running the ‘business’, and one is the sheriff.
What could possibly go wrong?!
The story starts out slowly, introducing you to the earlier generations of the Burroughs by jumping back and forth across the generations. You learn over the course of the novel when Bull Mountain went from a place to gets some high quality Moonshine to a place where there are unmarked graves and illegal guns.
When the events of the novel come to a head, the book is pretty much un-put-downable.
Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made its home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family’s criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction.
