Environmental struggle, sometimes by proxy, is at the core of T.C. Boyle's hauntingly relevant new novel. At first glance, the scene of When The Killing's Done appears to be peripheral: Santa Barbara's Channel Islands are relatively isolated and sparsely inhabited. However, the ferocity of the local battles between rival environmentalists and animal activists exemplifies the wars of nature itself. In this aptly titled fiction, Boyle represents their opposing views not as sterile intellectual debates, but as vital decisions in our fight for survival. Vivid characters; plausible conflict.
