Jenny Bennett will read from Murder at the Jumpoff on at 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 4, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.
Set in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Murder at the Jumpoff, follows the investigation of of the death of an avid off-trail hiker who disappears in the Greenbrier section of the GSMNP.
Chris Wilcox, owner at City Lights Bookstore, says of the book, “Jenny Bennett’s Murder at the Jumpoff has all the elements of a good whodunit, but also bonuses the reader a love story and travelogue. Sevier County sheriff’s detective Sally Connolly and backcountry park ranger, Hector Jones team up to find a killer who shoved an experienced off-trail hiker from the exposed Jumpoff on the Greenbrier side of the Great Smokies National Park. Bennett not only runs her characters all over the Park — from the Chimneys to Cataloochee — but also has them make side trips to locations such as Mt. Washington and the Shiloh Battlefield.”
