|Plot Summary of Blue Mountain Detour|
Nathan Henderson hoped to enjoy a quiet vacation with his family in Virgina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Instead, encountering a false detour, they are deliberately misdirected into the hands of a family of sadistic hillbillies. Freed by a gang of bikers, Nathan and his family are hunted by the hillbillies. Meanwhile, the state police hunt everyone. By the time the story ends, Nathan has redeemed his past sins as a Green Beret in Vietnam, but not until his wife, daughter, and son face unspeakable emotional, physical, and sexual assaults. This novel also contains cannibalism, infanticide, and sexual perversities of several kinds.
