One thought on “Spider Mountain

  1. Andy

    The plot is not totally insane, but it just doesn t hold together very well The underlying device driving the story is that the heroes have to get evidence But they don t even do what a six year old would know to do, like bring a camera What kind of private detective doesn t have a camera

  2. Bruce Scott

    Audiobook read by Dick Hill It passed the time and almost descended to the one star threshhold, when the plot becomes too ridiculous to continue Dick Hill s reading is the redeeming facotr, even tho he has a habit of running out of breath as a key sentence ends and the words are lost in road noise Pervasive Appalachian stereotyping is also exhausting.

  3. Mark Boyd

    Having finished The Edge of Honor prior to this one, I found myself in a different realm with Spider Mountain Spider Mountain was in line with the type of novels I enjoy It was a good bang, bang, shoot em up, fast paced read Plenty of action, good characters, a realistic protagonist and a good story Set in the hollers of the Appalachians, Deutermann s portrayal of mountain folk was spot on, both the good ones and the bad ones I recommend this book and author A gritty tale.

  4. Pamela

    OH MY Talk about the heebie jeebies Spider Mountain is a fiercely intense Dueling Banjos meets Deliverance crime thriller It wasn t my favorite Deutermann Cam Richter installment I found it a wee bit too nightmarish for my tastes But for those who like disturbia out of the box plots and backwoods crazed antagonists, Spider Mountain is a crosshairs winner.

  5. Elaine H

    Sounded so much like a Jack Reacher type story not just because it was read by same narrator Same kind of tough man main character Just not so single minded.

  6. Susan Krich

    This is a great thriller Continuous action cover to cover with surprising twists You won t want to put it down.

    Summoned by a friend, ex cop Cam Richter agrees to do a favor investigate the assault of a young woman in a remote area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Cam knows the misty hills and shadowed hollers of the park, and his outdoor skills might break a case that local cops can t or maybe don t want to solve.Cam has no idea how dangerous his search will become, because in this part of Appalachia, matriarch Grinny Creigh and her extended family destroy those who intrude into their web The C [...]

    Spider Mountain by P.T DeutermannKeep in mind, I see myself writing recommendations rather than reviews I can save you some time, I recommend the book Deutermann and this book once again, kept me up late reading Cam Richter who we met in Cat Dancers is back Cam, Frick and Frack once again face myriad dangers, psychopathic hillbillies, ravenous dogs and corrupt law enforcement I have all four books in this series and will be enlightening my readers with my reactions, sweaty palms and all I review [...]

  9. Coralie

    A suspense novel Pretty violent and quite over the top, but still, I finished it in one sitting Takes place in the mountains of North Carolina I m pretty sure things aren t quite the way the author describes them there, seeing as how I ve been there A family of really creepy people way up in the mountains are doing some horrible things Cam, an ex cop turned private eye, goes there to do a favor for a friend and ends up right in the thick of a nightmare Cam has these two well trained German Sheph [...]

  10. Mark

    Deutermann s Cam Richter character is right there with Joe Pickett, Walt Longmire Quinn ColsonI loved Deutermann s WWII books launched into this series put these right with those mentioned aboveThere s just as compelling stories in rural law enforcement as there is with the gritty urban onesThis the 2nd following Cat Dancers and, I think, better than the intro novel A good bang, bang, shoot em up, fast paced read Plenty of action, good characters, a realistic protagonist and a good story dealing [...]

  11. Tom Tischler

    Cam Richter is back in the Smoky Mountains of N.C this time in pursuit of the secretive Creigh Clan headed by Grinney Creigh and her son Nathan They control most of the crystal methtrade in this part of the mountains but they also operate another enterprise on the side This one involves abandoned andabused children Richter and special agent Carrie Santangelo ofthe N.C State Bureau of Investigations uncover this secretwhile experiencing how much power the Creighs have and why theyhave been able t [...]

  12. Wendy Dingwall

    This book pulled me in little slower than Cat Dancers, but it was very good and difficult to put down, especially as it picked up steam It was set in the wild mountains of Appalachia in the Smokies and I was set right in the terrain with Richter, the protagonist in each and every scene The villains were about as evil as they can get, and the good guys girls shepherds characters were likable and easy to root for Several twists, turns and surprises occur clear up to the end Readers won t get bored [...]

  13. Connie

    This is the 2nd in the Cam Richter series I loved it There were only 2 German Shepherds in this one Frick and Frack and it was about a woman in the hills of NC that was selling organs from children in the hills It involved an SBI agent and a DEA agent that was bad You didn t know that he was bad until the end, but I kind of had that feeling I liked the Big brothers too Really well done.This was narrated by Dick Hill and as always I enjoyed listening to him I think he is one of the better narrato [...]

  14. Rosalie

    It was pretty fast paced and entertained us for many hours on a cross country driving trip.Cam Richter was called into the Great Smokey Mountains to solve an attack of a young forest ranger It became quite a maze of low life people with very twisted ideas on money making I was surprized that it took the turns that it did.

  15. JohnSullivan

    This is the first of P T Deutermann s books which I ve read although, the book stands on it s own well I liked the multiple plots and sub plots, the detail of dogs, and the good guys I suspect the author knows about the area that I do I m from Piedmont North Carolina Sure sounds like the mountains are rough and tumble.

  16. Barb

    I love action adventure mystery thillers I also love outdoor adventure Spider Mountain Delivers I just finished the first of the Cam Richter series, The Cat Dancers and couldn t wait to get started on this book I really, really like the character of Cam Richter and am anxious to get started on the next books

  17. Joe Newell

    This book had some good things going for it, and if you like a thriller, this may be good for you, but honestly, I was ready for this thing to be over way before it actually was It would get really really high marks if there were a scale that said rate how unbelievable the events of the book were.

  18. Chuck

    Unbeknownst to me, this is a sequel to The Cat Dancers Our hero, whois now retired as a law enforcement officer, is called in to advise a National Park Ranger, who we met in the previous novel, in western North Carolina They get immediately on the trail of a family of subhuman hilbillys P.T s story telling is going downhill.

  19. Renee

    The second Cam Richter novel that I listened to via audio book There is plenty of action and it certainly makes for a good listen Dick Hill s narration is excellent and the characterization is well done both by author and narrator Entertaining, though, a little too testosterone charged for this series to become one of my favs.

  20. Susan Coley

    I liked Cat Dancers much better than this one they stand around plotting to hurry to the next big thing but suddenly feel hungry they whip in to a food joint and have time to sit in the parking lot to eat too many references to scotch the story reminds me a lot of Justifiedo many bad hillbillies either too mean or too dumb.

  21. Donald

    This was a good murder mystery An ex cop PI gets called to Smoky Mountain National Park to help a ranger with a case of a young ranger in training getting assaulted and winds up stumbling on something much larger and insidious The narrator the PI is fun to listen to and his German shepherd dog are pretty cool.

  22. Beth

    Cam Richter is a very good protagonist and his dogs are a really great addition, and a unique addition to a mystery series This book had sufficient twists and turns to keep it interesting And, it kept me in suspense I enjoyed it.

  23. Dan Smith

    WOW Cam Richter is as active as Vince Flynn or Dewey Andreas just doing all of his work in the hills and mountains of western North Carolina.Outstanding story and Characters are almost real

  24. Alicia

    As usual, picked this up just for the sake of having an audio book going and now I want to consume the entire series Enjoyed the main character and his four legged friends Many twists and loved the western NC backwoods setting

  25. Rosanne

    Totally scary the whole way through I had to practically hold my breath while reading it, and couldn t put it down Excellent if you want to have your adrenaline flowing This is the second P.T Deutermann book I have read, and I m off to the library in a few minutes to find another.

  26. Eric_W

    This one was OK I guess although I m getting a little tired of the lone man I can take on all the bad guys myself hero a la Jack Reacher I like Deutermann, especially when his character is a wiseass Good entertaining listen, well read, as usual by Dick Hill.

  27. Wes

    I haven t enjoyed this Cam Richter series as much as the other Deutermann titles I have read, hence only three stars.

  28. Michell

    Good action suspense novel I liked the little surprise to me near the end on who was involved with the bad guys.
