I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.

A thinking person's mystery-thriller based on real conflicts and conditions in the Upper Columbia River Basin, with good use of larger personal and political themes. Well done.

With the vulgarity toned down a tiny bit, I could see this as a fun movie. Not much character depth, but a lot of good action and situational humor.

Kingsley Amis
“Consciousness was upon him before he could get out of the way.”
Kingsley Amis

C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Margaret Atwood
“If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
