In The Works
Mitchell County, North Carolina, is the source for 90 percent of the tech industry’s most important mineral—the high purity quartz (HPQ) used to make silicon chips. It is a global business monopolized by a couple of foreign mining companies making billions while leaving the county poverty-stricken and ignorant. Blood County, where nearly every family is related by blood or marriage, and outsiders are as feared as democrats. But when a mining company whistleblower is murdered, Blood County is forced to reckon with its horrible past.
Jack Dancer is a Floridian and transplanted Californian living with his beautiful wife Linda and two four-legged children. Blood County is his fifth novel.
