Now, struggling with PTSD, she believes she’s finally found sanctuary living under a new name on a ranch where she works as a fishing guide. But when a fresh victim is found gutted and hanging from a tree, bearing startling similarities to the old Watt Lake slaughters, Olivia must face the impossible—could the Watt Lake Killer be back, this time to finish the job?

nicole

– Nicole, your last book Night in Shanghai was accepted very well by the readers. How did you decide to write the story?
– The last hundred years of Chinese history have always enthralled me, maybe because as someone who started doing business in China at the close of the Cultural Revolution, I’ve been able to observe China’s present stage of modernization pretty much from the start. I feel that the struggle to modernize–personally, socially, economically, in terms of governance–has been the story not just of the current era, but of the whole last century in China. Shanghai has always been at the forefront of this modernization, and I wanted an original and different story that would bring it to life. When I stumbled on accounts of American jazz musicians who had been recruited to Shanghai during the 1930s, I knew I had found it.

– Carol, what was your feeling when you saw The Girl on the Mountain in the top 20 of Kindle Amazon bestselling list?
– My author friends emailed about the bestseller list before I saw it, so my first feeling was gratitude that they cared enough to be following. When I saw the numbers, I didn’t scream or leap for joy, but for several hours my husband and I had fun watching the numbers, and I kept busy returning emails and commenting with friends in a Facebook thread. On the surface, I felt calm, but I slept only a few hours that night and the next.
