I really love stories that take place in the far northern portion of the Western Hemisphere--Alaska and its environs. The heroine is a scientist, an environmentalist who is concerned that the commercial oil industry isn't overwhelming the nature and animal life of the area. Dr. Cameron is a kind and gentle woman, a lady who has put her personal needs and concerns on hold to follow the "muse" of science. She literally collides with Daniel Fox, a former Special Ops military man who has been "let go" by British Armed Forces and who is flying his helicopter in an effort to make the drudgery of civilian life bearable. Cameron's effect on Daniel is not well-received, nor is Cameron well received by the employees of the oil exploration and drilling company. It is a tense and emotional story and there are lots of twists and turns that keep the reader wondering what is going to happen next. Add in the mystery of who might be hunting animals who are officially endangered and you have a complicated, riveting, and compelling novel about love and life, death and destruction, the beauty of the world and the betrayal humans perpetrate against one another. The cast of characters is interesting and the edginess of the story never wavers. It's one of those kinds of novels that has a ton of stuff going on all the time and I found it to be a wonderful reading experience.
