I have long been a fan of Elizabeth Gunn’s police procedurals. I am very happy to read this book a start of a new series. Meredith is a mountain in Northwestern Montana. Near the mountain is a small town Clark’s Fork. The local weekly news is covered by the Guardian. A small fire started on the Meredith and as the fire department is preparing to put it out, the winds changed and it exploded burning the diseased ridiculed Liverpool pine. Stuart Campbell is sent by the paper to cover the fire. His dispatches are edited by his Aunt Alice. His reports and pictures captured the national news media. The writing brings along with Stuart coverage of the fire as it burns total destruction to the mountain. Shortly after the fire is finally a charred body is found in the ruins bringing a whole new set of problems to the local sheriff. At the same, a group of local teenagers is experimenting with various drugs. These two themes are simply brought together for one tale. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Disclosure: Many thanks to Severn House for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
