Season's of Death, The Smoky Mountains Murders Book Review

I have a different kind of book to switch to today called Season's of Death, The Smoky Mountains Murders written by Marlene Mitchell and Gary Yeagle.
Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:
In the fall of 1969 in the mountains of eastern Tennessee, a poor backwoods farmer and his wife were brutally shot and killed by four drunken hunters, along with their three dogs, horse and two fawns.  
The farmer’s two young sons managed to escape but were unable to identify the killers. Now decades later, the murders of the Pender family remain unsolved. In Townsend, Tennessee, in Blount County, someone has decided to take revenge.
This was a very good mystery to solve. I really felt sorry for the two young boys who witnessed all of the horrible things that they saw that day up in the tree where they had been playing. That was the only thing that saved their lives that day. Both of them swore that someday, they would get revenge.

It's a mystery as to which brother really did get the revenge or if both of them did. One Deputy named Grant had seen a mysterious white van around town with a man dressed in black. He didn't think nothing of it at the time but there came a day when he accidently found it in his father-in-law's barn hidden under some tarp!

What should he do? He knew that someone in the house was a killer, but who? It was Thanksgiving and he and his wife came over to her parent's for dinner.  When he got back to the house, his father-in-law told him that he had seen him in the barn and he then told his story. What was Grant going to do?

There was still the question of the other brother but during the night, something happened that changed the whole scenario.

You will definitely love this up and down and all over the place mystery of why people are dropping dead with no clues in sight. It was pure luck that Grant found what he did on Thanksgiving and if he had not dropped something and it rolled under that tarp, he would have never seen the white van.

But, the mystery really got interesting later on. You will have to read the book to see what happened!

Happy Reading!
