Refuge on the Mountain
By Cornelia Feye
After a massive solar storm causes a catastrophic global blackout, Greg and Vega Stern escape with their extended family to their solar powered, self-sufficient mountain cabin.
Their survival is threatened when a dead body is found on the path behind their home, and a gang of lawless Neo-Nazis tries to take over their property.
'Once again Cornelia Feye has given her loyal readers a murder mystery that reveals human nature at its best and at its worst. Feye's work explores survival and race relations in this near future, post-apocalyptic tale that will keep you reading far into the night.' - Tamara Merrill, author of Shadows in our Bones
