Summit Lake
by Charlie Donlea
Rating: 4.6 #ad


Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Summit Lake seems too pristine for violent crime. But two weeks ago, law student Becca Eckersley was murdered in one of its quaint lakefront houses. The daughter of a powerful attorney, Becca was ambitious, hard-working, and beloved. And, while the town reels with grief, the police are without a suspect.

To investigative reporter Kelsey Castle, the savagery of the crime, and the determined efforts to keep the case quiet, all hint at something far more sinister than a random attack.

That is used to justify the oppression and persecution of women, by men and the church.
