Trouble is brewing and Frank Riordan is the only one willing to stop it. As he wages a one-man campaign to shut down the local pulp mill that is polluting the air and devastating the environment, tensions are growing - and so is the level of power he's up against. It is becoming more than Frank can handle. The man who can help already has troubles of his own. Iry Paret is trying put the past behind him, having served time for accidentally killing a man. He heads west to make a fresh start in Montana on Frank's ranch. But he hadn't expected to fall in love with the estranged wife of Frank's son, a strong, dynamic and beautiful woman who will test the limits of Iry's loyalty to his friends.

For those unfamiliar with James Lee Burke, let me state first that he is one of the best stylists, that is writers, working today. Don't let that scare you away if you do not like MFA approved authors or snotty reviewers or 'arty' books with no discernible ending. Burke writes about meaty issues of conscience and violence and human weakness, about struggles with our evil demons and the triumph, albeit narrow, of overall good in the world.
This was his stand alone book before he started to reach a larger audience with the Dave and Clete books, and after he had had several other non series books published. It marks the beginning of his career in that he went unpublished for something like ten years while suffering a hundred or so rejections of "The Lost Get-Back Boogie".
I'll not waste space with a plot synopsis; they are available wherever the book is sold. I merely express my opinion that this is a minor masterpiece well worth the time and expense.
