A Killing in the Hills by Julia Keller


9781250028754_p0_v4_s260x420This mystery and family relationship novel takes places in rural West Virginia.  The relationship between county prosecuting attorney Bell Elkins and her 17 year old daughter, Carla, is strained to say the least.  When Carla is the witness to the shooting deaths of three old men at a local fast food restaurant, she thinks this might be the perfect chance to repair her relationship with her mom.  It soon becomes apparent to Bell that this crime is linked to the growing organized crime in the area that is trafficking prescription drugs.  This debut novel covers the full range that a complete novel should: an intriguing mystery plot, well developed characters with personal flaws and desires, and a setting painted deeply and in vivid detail.
