It's a well written story but it needed a more thorough copy-editing run. I noticed three obvious typos and at least one obivious gramatical error. Putting those errors aside, it was my kind of book, a wonderful blend of horror and crime drama. Plot wise there are very few loose ends and the story wraps up succinctly with the delicious ambiguity of scientific explanation and mystical resolution.
A man is found dead from a propane fire at a construction site. Though it is officially declared an accident, rookie cop Mac MacKurghdy smells a rat. His suspicions lead him through a tangled web of lies and corruption as he tries to get to the bottom of a major environmental threat lurking in the swamps. For a little spice, a supernatural killer also stalks the area. Its relation to the main story is tenous at best, but it makes for a nice bit of drama at the very end.

OK, so as I expected, this was a little too creepy for me :) I found it an interesting blend of Coyote Blue and Montana Sky, which I read ages ago. The "indian warrior" parts reminded me of the "italicized" parts of Coyote Blue, and the horrible animal deaths reminded me of Montana Sky. That combination was a little odd in my head :)

It was, however, a very creative story, and did keep me reading. And I'm very glad to have supported a friend and fellow BCer by buying this book!
I tried, but I just could not get into this. I liked the main character, but the writing just felt too stilted and awkward, and I quit around 40 pages in. The book definitely could have benefited from some much tighter editing.

I'm so annoyed with the dig for eating thus one! I really wanted to read it, but the first 13 pages are gone and the end is missing :( I'll have to search out another copy even though this one was hard to come by.
There are books you rate low because you can't get into them. They can still be good books. Then there are books which are quite simply badly written, like this one. Pity really, there might have been a story there.

The story tells of a cop whose life came off the rails, he's lost his wife and has very little contact with his wife. And then there are some very strange murders going on in town....
