Skillful mystery with a strong human element
A great big plus here is the weaving of the mystery with the personal issues going on in detective jackson's private life. this really fleshes out his character and gives us readers a lot that we can identify with. i also liked the way the eco-terrorist theme was handled. through following agents jamie dallas and carla river, we see the differences between those who are sincere environmentalists and those who are merely using environmental concerns as motivations justifying their urge to commit violence. all in all, this is a significant and enjoyable book in a significant and enjoyable series..
