“Quiet Killing,” a new mystery novel set in Western North Carolina, has been published by local author Morgan James. This is the second in the Promise McNeal mystery series and takes the main character, made popular in the first book, “Quiet the Dead,” on a hunt for a murderer roaming territory many local residents may find familiar.
North Carolina folk hero and notorious moonshine outlaw Lewis Redmond also figures in the tale of a mysterious, lost little girl, arson, and a restless spirit haunting the mountains.
James will sign copies of “Quiet Killing” at Books Unlimited, Franklin, on July 4, at 10 a.m., and at the Macon County Library on July 12, from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m.
Copies are also available at City Lights Bookstore, Sylva, Malaprop’s, Asheville, Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, other Indie bookstores, and at Amazon.
