About the book
Something deep in the earth has evolved...
Hidden in the West Desert of Utah, the gold rush town of Mammoth is a shell of its former glory. But for Liz Chilton, a photojournalist on assignment, it’s the place she was born and where her mother grew up. Forty years after fleeing the area, Liz seeks to reconnect with her now-deceased mother’s past.
Unspeakable deeds concealed in darkness…
What begins as an adventurous road trip for Liz, her husband, and another couple, takes a horrific turn when they discover a slaughtered man at an RV park. Something has partially consumed him—something inhuman.
The group is dragged into a twisted conspiracy tied to the old family mine, marked by a massive hole on the side of the mountain. Confronted by her mother’s hidden past and the mine’s dark purpose, Liz and her friends must fight to survive or fall prey to the secret nesting deep within the caverns.
Inspired by true events, HARVEST DEEP is a debut novel of horror by Trent Pettry.
