Filled with information that only a former Commander-in-Chief could know, this is the most authentic, terrifying novel to come along in many years. Full of intrigue, tension and questions that go unanswered. By reading the first chapter you can sense the tense history between the Speaker and President of the United States.
I also love where this story begins. Obviously something already substantial happened to put the President in the hot seat, but what? The suspense is palpable! The Washington Post. Hollywood Reporter. The Guardian. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. And she learns that Brady, like most small towns, harbors some big secrets.

Her new job takes Samantha into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, rules are ignored, regulations are flouted, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack from Big Coal. Violence is always just around the corner, and within weeks Samantha finds herself engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Gray Mountain is about the story of a big city lawyer, Samantha Kofer, who ends up in a small time town of Brady, Virginia.
Everything she worked for is nearly gone when her law firm folds under stressful circumstances of a recession. Now forced to work for free under limitations of her employer, she has to go up against big time coal mining companies in the middle of nowhere. Right away I was drawn into the point of view and mindset of Samantha Kofer as she navigates life after the big city. Storytelling is all about people in the midst of challenging situations.
This is her story. Really looking forward to the rest of the book! The first shot punches through the windshield of an SUV. A head shot. The vacant streets and restaurants paint an eerie picture. No one dares to venture out. A sniper along I kills eight and causes a 36 car pileup. Once more Agent Darger must identify with a murderer, must stare into the darkest recesses of mankind to anticipate his next move. Putting herself in his head may be the only way to stop him. But what hatred drives a man to such desperate, violent acts? What damage?
And what price must one pay to invite that chaos inside themselves? There are good writers, great writers, and those who bring you so deep into the point of view their characters are indelibly impressed upon you. The prose is quite remarkable. The ability to capture a scene so well it invokes physical reactions in the reader as its replayed in 3D. Seeing her reactions, fears, vulnerabilities, strength, secrets, family, history was quite the ride. I asked fellow bibliophile, Vikki Faircloth, some questions about her favorite books and authors. Mark Greaney was a new author to me : all Gray Man books this year.
