New York Author Publishes Action Thriller Novel

( On the Other Side of Death Mountain, a new book by Douglass N. Powell, M. D., has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Lake Placid seems an idyllic paradise in the Adirondack Mountains. But the town, and its people, are still recovering after an electromagnetic attack by rogue CIA agent Gary Canig. The healers of Jay Mountain Healing Center are doing what they can. Still, they have their own pain that makes performing the Reiki, acupuncture, and psychotherapy that others need difficult.

When three suspicious men show up, the town is on high alert. Sheriff Todd Wilkins, wealthy benefactor Demian Listing, and former Special Forces soldier Bennie, the heroes who defeated Canig, must once more defend their beloved town. Bennie's heart is also captured by Jenn, a talented former gymnast whose chronic pain makes even a few steps unbearable.

As assassins gather and death looms, the stakes are high for Lake Placid. Filled with action, near-misses, buried treasure, and mountain-top escapes, On the Other Side of Death Mountain is a thriller with heart and meaning. Survival means one thing - but living means another. It might not matter if Bennie saves Lake Placid if Jenn cannot be healed.
