The Mountain: A Ryan Decker Novel

Steven Konkoly. Thomas & Mercer, $15.95 trade paper (428p) ISBN 978-1-5420-2186-9
In Konkoly’s entertaining third Ryan Decker novel (after 2019’s The Raid), Decker and the rescue and investigation team at World Recovery Group go in search of Brett Hale, a young man who wants to make his fortune in the marijuana business. Hale was last seen in an isolated, forested area nicknamed Murder Mountain, where “nearly half of California’s illegal marijuana industry was based.” Brett runs afoul of big-time marijuana operator Carl Trenkor, who thinks Brett could be an undercover law-enforcement agent. Just a few weeks from harvest, Trenkor can’t afford to have Decker and his colleagues nosing around. As Decker digs deeper, he realizes that Trenkor and Trenkor’s associates in the “Wolfpak, a white nationalist gang mainly composed of ex-military felons and petty criminals,” are pawns in a vast and frightening conspiracy. Exciting action scenes help propel this tale of murderous greed and corruption toward a satisfying conclusion. Readers will look forward to Decker and company’s next adventure. (July)
