The Godfather meets Daniel Woodrell in this Southern debut, a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance. Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made their 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.

"Set on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, this saga traces the Burroughs clan as the bloody and violent family evolves from selling moonshine in the 1950s to selling marijuana, methamphetamines, and guns today. Brian Troxell uses a range of voices to portray a disparate array of males and females, young and old of varied ethnicities. His poignant depictions of a wife coping with her husband's relapse or a sheriff hearing a whippoorwill's song during a confrontation exemplify the emotional depth of his narration. While a few stereotypical voices and mispronunciations weaken the production, his depiction of ongoing tensions and frequent eruptions into brutality will keep listeners enthralled with this Southern noir.
