After closing his private investigation firm and moving to a small cabin in the Vermont woods, Oakley Tyler can finally begin his retirement. But his peace is interrupted when Jeremiah Smith visits and asks the ex-PI to help him stop unidentified men from killing his grandson, a local newspaper reporter. Tyler is reluctant to take the case, wishing to get back to a life of leisure, but when Smith is killed in a hit-and-run car accident, Tyler is convinced someone has silenced the old man to protect a secret.
Delving into the mystery, Tyler finds himself investigating the world of genetic engineering and its potentially devastating impact on the environment. And after enduring numerous attempts on his life, Tyler begins to wonder if he'll live long enough to bring the killer to justice.
It's an interesting story but it veers a little bit into preachy . It kind of flirts with it along the edge like dancing on the edge of a cliff. Unfortunately the narrator, in their handling of one of the characters, pushes it right over the edge.
