|Mount Rainier National Park|
The thriller is set in numerous national park sites including well-known sites like Gettysburg and Antietam. But it also visits lesser known sites like Fort Monroe, Wilson’s Creek, and Fort Pickens.
Lost Cause is the follow up to the bestselling thriller Unleashing Colter's Hell. That story was set in Yellowstone national park and it about a terrorist attempt to detonate an atomic bomb in Yellowstone, igniting the world’s largest super volcano.
I love national parks because they protect some of America’s most iconic, historic, and beautiful places. The parks contain plenty of exotic and familiar places within which to set dramatic, nail-biting thrillers.
I’ve already begun writing Need to Know the next Grayson Cole thriller which is set in Mount Rainier national park. Mount Rainier is one of the oldest and best known national parks in the world. But few people realize that while Roswell is believed to be the site of the first UFO sighting, it was actually Mount Rainier National Park in 1947. Presto, I have the theme and location for the next story.
That got me wondering about other park historical tidbits or coincidences that might make great stories, great settings for the next thriller.
So dear reader, where should Grayson go next? Please leave your selection and brief explanation why in the comment section.
