R. Bruce Walker's "The Last Canary" is a compelling read. Richly woven with a diverse cast of characters the story both entertains and educates. Walker has taken a very topical issue and engaged the reader to identify with the complex strata of people, players and politics surrounding energy access and policy in this country. This is a fast paced and thoroughly enjoyable book. I look forward to more offerings from this author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just put down R. Bruce Walker's new novel, The Last Canary. What an interesting and informative read ... at times a little frightening. I've seen the word fracking in the newspaper and such, but this book brings the implications home in a totally different way.
The story moves along crisply while marrying a whole lot of facts into very readable prose. The characters and situations are vivid and diverse. So are the story's multiple perspectives. When I finished the book I thought that the author had done a wonderful job of delivering a balanced point of view.
