Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The prose gallops like a runaway moose through Goddard's ( Balefire ) environmental adventure yarn as an international cabal of Very Big Businesses sends a mega-lethal hit squad, code name ICER, to destroy the pro-green activist groups whose demands are jeopardizing their profits. A covert team of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recruits rogue undercover cop Henry Lightstone to flush out the Chareaux brothers, two cold-blooded Cajuns who are running wild game hunts in national parks. Lightstone's smooth sting operation hits a speed bump when two ICER directors horn in on his private hunt. After making the bust, the Wildlife team watches as ICER uses its Interior Department clout to get the charges dropped. Dismantled and scattered across the country, Lightstone's team is targeted by an ICER terminator squad. Henry fakes out the FBI and reunites the surviving team members to cross paths with the Chareauxs. They escape with enough forensic evidence to lead them to ICER headquarters and to finger Washington bigwigs on the take. A convincing thriller starring a little-known Federal law enforcement group, with a terrific green backlash scenario. (Sept.)
Jon Kartman
You'll think you've walked into a novelized version of a Hollywood "actioner" when you read this. Though it's about a U.S. Fish and Wildlife undercover agent's attempt to nab a trio of Cajun poachers, the heart of the tome is all flying fists, blazing guns, and enough wounds, abrasions, contusions, concussions, and general blood-and-guts to keep legions of ER nurses and doctors busy for months. While after his prey, our hero, agent Harry Lightstone, stumbles on a covert U.S. government operation aimed at destroying environmental groups that look and act a lot like, say, Greenpeace. Never mind whether this makes a whole lot of sense, for the stabbings, beatings, and shootings begin posthaste and continue at a pace that's downright electric--and entertaining. Some more of the whys and wherefores concerning the action might make this a more fulfilling novel, but without them it's still bloody fun.

Excellent thriller, well written and fascinating book for anyone interested in environmental issues, Fish & Wildlife service, govt. cover-ups, DNR cops, etc. This is a great book with interesting characters. It also gives one pause to think "what-if". It is not for anti-government, militant types who hate any type of governmental control. While I did find some of the ICER members a little too extreme and implausible, that's what makes a book good reading. You will lose yourself in this book. Beautiful descriptions of scenery and wildlife are included as well.
