Overview

He'll have a lot of obstacles cross his path: a crooked congressman, a ruthless coalition of industrialists, a traitorous Army Ranger hunter-killer team team, and a band of crazy, gun-toting, right-wing woodsmen, to name a few. All in all, though, it's nothing Henry Lightstone can't handle.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Goddard's prose has sheer explosive energy."—Eric Lustbader

"An intense environmental thriller....Lighstone proves to be a fascinating character."—Tampa Tribune and Times

Kirkus Reviews
The usually reliable Goddard (Cheater, 1996, etc.) offers a murky, inane, farcical thriller in which federal agents unwittingly work at cross purposes while trying to bag the vindictive villains who are secretly after them.

The US Fish & Wildlife Service dispatches two teams of special agents to Oregon's Rogue Valley on seemingly separate missions. One group, headed by ex-policeman Henry Lightstone, is ordered to set up an unlikely sting operation, while the other is told to trail Regis J. Smallsreed, a corrupt congressman with a passion for hunting endangered waterfowl species—in season or out. The crooked Smallsreed has powerful allies from the military/industrial complex, one of whom has vowed vengeance on Lightstone for the loss of his family (in Wildfire, 1994). In aid of their objective, the bad guys (whose ultimate goal is to keep the biosphere safe for ecologically ruinous overdevelopment) recruit a half dozen former Army Rangers. Using an over-the-hill gang of local militia as dupes, this armed and dangerous crew sets an up-country trap for the two-fisted Lightstone and his wiseacre associates. Before they can get the lawmen in their sights, however, the renegade soldiers need a positive ID, which (owing to a series of absurd misfortunes) they never get. In short order, Lightstone is doing undercover work with a luscious self-styled witch known only as Karla, whose amorous black panther (Sasha) takes to him as well. With help from this odd couple, the backwoods copper is able to infiltrate the mercenaries (who still don't know what he looks like). As a quasi- insider, Lightstone is then able to engineer a two-stage showdown that brings all but one of the culpable to book.

An addled, awkwardly plotted narrative that strains for, and fails to achieve, devil-may-care effects.

Eugene Register-Guard
"Southern Oregon has never been so wild ... Don't read this while commuting on the bus. It moves quickly, but it's engrossing. You may miss your stop."
Library Journal
"Amusing, fast-paced thriller replete with bizarre characters and outrageous situations."
Publishers Weekly
"...should appeal to Goddard's fans -- and also to readers who have enjoyed Cussler's Dirk Pitt series."
The Sullivan County Democrat
"A tight, suspenseful environmental thriller that enlightens as well as entertains. Taut, well-written, intriguing..."
Tom Perry
"Goddard nicely combines our instinctive fear of things glimpsed at the corner of the eye with the mind's rational habit of assembling evidence..."
