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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The gripping, witty Bull Mountain is not only a fine debut, but a fine mystery novel, period. Panowich may even have carved out his own subgenre of hillbilly noir. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.”

    John Connolly, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Holy cow, what a book! It moves like a bullet. Mr. Panowich knows his mountains, his whiskey, his dope and his meth. And boy, does he know his characters, who are drawn so vividly I can’t forget them. I can’t recommend this novel enough—it will thrill fans of Daniel Woodrell and Larry Brown as well as fans of Dennis Lehane and William Gay. First rate, first rate!”

    Tom Franklin, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Brian Panowich had me at the first word of his spectacular debut novel, ‘Family,’ and he held me until the very last page. Bull Mountain is a sprawling, gritty, violent, tribal inter-generational crime epic with a deeply rooted sense of place and an gut-punch ending I didn’t see coming. Expect to see Bull Mountain on the short-list of many ‘Best First Novel’ awards.”

    C. J. Box, New York Times­ bestselling author

  • Bull Mountain is a stone gas and a stone winner! It’s brother-versus-brother in the dope-damned South. This first novel has it all: moonshine, maryjane and mayhem! Read this book now—and succumb to a startling new talent.”

    James Ellroy, national bestselling author of L. A. Confidential

  • “Dazzling…Panowich tells his story in lengthy, nicely worked chapters reminiscent of John Steinbeck, who did his own brother-versus-brother story in East of Eden. Both write in a flowing, textured, understated style that is such a pleasure to read we don’t realize we’re being set up for a series of uppercuts. They come in revelations accompanied by gunfire. Read and recommend to anyone who follows country noir or savors delicious prose.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Hillbilly noir goes literary in [Bull Mountain]…Panowich deftly delves into ‘something deeper than bone’ between fathers and sons, between the land and its people.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A 2015 Amazon Best Books of the Year Selection for Debut Authors
  • A 2016 Anthony Award Nominee for Best First Novel
