This week’s new addition to my shelves, once again comes courtesy of the lovely Samantha, over at ‘Roger Charlie’. Sami has introduced me to some great new books and authors over the months, so I aways look forward to her emails.
‘Lake Of Fire’ is the fourth and latest book in author Mark Stevens ‘Allison Coil’ series and as I haven’t read any of the previous stories, I am hoping that this is going to work well as a stand alone novel, although I am certain that Sami wouldn’t have recommended it, if she had any doubts that I would enjoy it as such 🙂
LAKE OF FIRE
A giant wildfire is roaring through Colorado’s Flat Tops Wilderness. The massive blaze is wiping out Allison Coil’s precious hunting grounds, and the flames have set their sights on the beautiful ranch owned by her boyfriend’s family.
Allison and longtime friend Trudy are shocked to learn that a body has been found in the fire ravaged forest—a friend who was a reclusive environmentalist with an unorthodox idea for the battle against global warming. Along with reporter Duncan Bloom, Allison burrows into an underground group of anti-government extremists. As they strike close to home and hurt those closest to her, Allison vows hell might not be punishment enough for this cabal of sinister fanatics.
Mark Stevens is the son of two librarians and was raised in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
He graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in the suburbs of Boston and later from Principia College in Illinois.
Mark has worked as a reporter for The Christian Science Monitor in Boston and Los Angeles; as a City Hall reporter for The Rocky Mountain News in Denver; as a national field producer for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour (PBS) and as an education reporter for The Denver Post.
After his career in journalism, Mark worked in school public relations before starting his own public relations and strategic communications business.
He lives in Denver with his wife and has two grown daughters.
