HINTERLAND is not only a suspenseful murder mystery, but also depicts a clash of cultures—urban vs. rural in a countryside that’s closer to Appalachia then to Boston and has never been written about before. It is also the story of a man and woman drawn together from these disparate worlds in search of a serial killer.
