Lake of Fire (An Allison Coil Mystery) by Mark Stevens Review
Buy on Amazon
A giant wildfire is roaring through Colorado’s Flat Tops Wilderness. The massive blaze is wiping out Allison Coil’s precious hunting grounds, and the flames have set their sights on the beautiful ranch owned by her boyfriend’s family.
Allison and longtime friend Trudy are shocked to learn that a body has been found in the fire ravaged forest—a friend who was a reclusive environmentalist with an unorthodox idea for the battle against global warming. Along with reporter Duncan Bloom, Allison burrows into an underground group of anti-government extremists. As they strike close to home and hurt those closest to her, Allison vows hell might not be punishment enough for this cabal of sinister fanatics.
The son of two librarians, Mark Stevens was raised in Lincoln, Massachusetts, graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School and, four years later, from Principia College in Illinois. He has worked as a reporter for The Christian Science Monitor, The Rocky Mountain News and The Denver Post. He also worked as producer for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour and in school public relations. Stevens is married and lives in Denver with his wife and two daughters.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- I would have liked to read this series in order, but this book is still a good standalone. The author is skilled and it shows in the creation of the characters and well crafted story. I would sit back and get ready to enjoy this book as you will not want to stop reading until it is finished.
