A new suspense book is “A Killing in the Hills” by Julia Keller. Three elderly men are gunned down over their coffee at a local diner in Acker’s Gap, West Virginia. Seemingly half the town witnessed the act, but no one seems to have gotten a good look at the shooter. Was it random? Was it drug related? One of the witnesses, Carla Elkins, teenage daughter of Bell Elkins, the prosecuting attorney, believes she might be able to help her mother do her job, but could Carla do more harm than good – in fact put her own life in danger?
