2018 GREAT NORTHWEST BOOK FESTIVAL HONORS “MADISONVILLE”
PORTLAND _ A fast-paced thriller of something strange going on in a Northwest prison is the grand prize winner of the
2018 Great Northwest Book Festival, which honors the best books of the late winter/spring.
Author J.A. Huff’s “Madisonville” (Inkwater Press) starts when a botched robbery and subsequent car chase lands six men behind bars at Madisonville, Idaho's most secluded prison. But things aren't what they seem at Madisonville; and the tension ramps up as the six convicts soon find themselves in a meadow with few supplies, and a simple note: "You are being hunted." What ensues is one of the most epic battles of survival.
Huff will be honored at a private ceremony in April long with other authors and publishers who placed in the competition.
