Publisher's Summary

The Wall Street Journal bestselling series

Investigating a missing persons case on Murder Mountain means looking for trouble in a propulsive thriller by the author of The Raid.

When someone disappears on Northern California’s lawless Murder Mountain, it isn’t news. The vast terrain for illegal marijuana harvests is also a notorious black hole for outsiders. But when that someone is the family friend of the persuasive and righteous Senator Steele, finding him becomes covert investigator Ryan Decker’s mission.

For Decker, the risks of infiltrating a multibillion-dollar outlaw industry are greater than he could possibly understand. Especially when that industry has flourished into the profitable backbone of a secretive and influential DC-based think tank. And protecting its untraceable revenue in the Emerald Triangle is a band of ruthless white nationalists.

What begins as a seemingly straightforward favor soon pulls Decker and his partner, Harlow Mackenzie, into a high-stakes conspiracy linked to the most cold-blooded puppet masters and power brokers in the country. The harder Decker and Harlow work to expose the insidious faction, the harder it’ll be to make it out of Murder Mountain alive.

Ryan Decker, Book 3

THE MOUNTAIN is an excellent suspense thriller, but it is not as good as the first two novels in the Ryan Decker series (The Rescue and The Raid).

A Pattern

Yes, I am a bit slow on this, but I have noticed that these Ryan Decker books have developed into a predictable pattern of events. There are always one or two minor shoot outs with people that can only be designated as bullet magnets culminating in a major shoot out with even more people that seem to be genetically predisposed to drawing flying bullets to them. Over all, the plot has a good concept in each book. It’s just events develop into a repetitive pattern with always the same people winning.

Really?!?!

Why do I have to wait almost a year for book four? Excellent book and performance by the narrator. Ryan Decker is getting close to Alex Fletcher in my personal hall of heroes, keep up the superb writing Steven Konkoly!

Already waiting on BOOK 4! A Great Series.

Steven Konkoly keeps delivering on this series! If you like Brad Thor’s Scot Havath character, you’ll love Ryan Decker. This is another excellent story in the continuing adventures of Ryan Decker and Harlow McKenzie. The character development continues to expand and I’m already waiting for the next book!

Another great one by Steve Konkoly!

Konkoly doesn't disappoint in this action/crime novel. Narrator is great as always. Great choice for those who lose attention quickly if a story slows down too much. Konkoly also ads the right amount of humor to cause you to laugh aloud every so often.

Decker and Mackenzie Are Terrific

Another exciting investigation. This one starts when Senator Steel gets a call from her college roommate about her missing son. He is missing in Northern California where there is lots of marijuana growing. He was looking to invest and hoped to meet some growers. So, who does Senator Steel call to investigate? Ryan Decker of course. Decker puts together a team including Harlow Mackenzie and her company of investigators, his buddy Price and some of Price’s mercenary friends. They all head for what is known as Murder Mountain to look for the young man. What happens at that point is pure Decker. It is another fast moving, high tech, skillful use of weapons, and some bad guys who don’t come out as well as they might. But, then of course no one wins with Decker. I read some and listened to Thom Rivera narrate the story. I enjoy the narration because it brings the characters to life. So far the dialogue and action have been terrific. Book 4 sounds like it will be more intense but that’s okay. I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys intrigue and intensity.

Great suspense and thrilling action!

Great story. Found S. Konkoly with two other books ( the rescue and the Jakarta pandemic). Always a thrilling read; can’t stop listening. Got books out of order so now I need to listen to The Raid. His books always deliver!
