There's no name for the kind of evil that's taken a foothold in the hills...
The calmness of the community is reflected in its name. Manning is the kind of small town you read about: where everyone knows your name; where neighbours look out for each other; and where the toughest kind of criminal you're likely to come across is a lone horse thief.
But a cold wind has blown unto the peace-as the locals call it-one that takes the form of two psychopaths whose consciences are guided only by their own twisted desires. Bent on wreaking as much carnage as possible while they line their pockets, two brothers terrorize the normally quiet Northern Alberta community.
Their deadly rampage gathers steam, cutting a bloody swath across the hills. It's a deadly game of 'hunt to kill', as police struggle to stem the tide of bodies the brothers leave in their wake.
BEVERLY LEIN lives in Manning, Alberta and knows the Peace River country like the back of her hand. She is the author of An Elk in the House (New West Press), The Three Saints of Christmas, Wolf Spirit–The Story of Moon Beam, and Mary, Woman of Sorrows (Inkwater Press).
