Publisher's Summary

First Prize for Fiction - 2015 New England Book Festival

...cold, rugged Maine becomes a hot bed of intrigue, murder, and greed, making it difficult for the residents, who love the land and this beautiful state, to continue to live the lives that they have chosen. Pono Hawkins returns to rescue his Special Forces buddy who is wrongly accused of murdering a prominent environmentalist Ronnie Dalt.

Unknown killers stalk Pono as he tries to unravel Ronnie's death. Nothing is certain, no one can be trusted, no place is safe. There's a million square miles of wildlands out there to hide a man's body. And with a rap sheet that includes two jail sentences, Pono is the number one target of every cop in the state.

Who is the murderer?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! There were so many clues and mysteries, that I found myself completely immersed in this action filled book.

Just OK

Sexual exploits really did not add to plot or character development. Although I agree with the save the wilderness sentiments completely, often felt like reading an essay, not a mystery.

Caution: Read skeptically!

Fiction certainly, but more accurately propaganda of the worst kind: full of hyperbolic half-truths; sophomoric anti-establishment rants; full-scale indictment of the military, but unfiltered lionizing of the footsoldier (with special honors reserved for Special Forces); and the most heinous, retrograde, and juvenile characterizations of women to appear in print outside of Breitbart. Yes, the women are smart, accomplished, and capable, but all they really want is to have endless passionate sex with anyone with a penis, but mostly with the first-person narrator. The State of Maine is a caricature, a blank canvas, apparently, upon which the author imposes his pseudo-intellectual morality play: Good writhes in the clutches of Evil. Guess who wins?

This is trash. If you're looking for trash, forge ahead. But before you swallow any of this claptrap, please, fact-check the ingredients.

Great narrator! Storyline boring...

Luke Daniels did a great job of narrating the story. The basis of the story could be covered in two chapters. Stop the government from destroying communities with wind turbines.
