After closing his private investigation firm and moving to a small cabin in the Vermont woods, Oakley Tyler can finally begin his retirement. But his peace is interrupted when Jeremiah Smith visits and asks the ex-PI to help him stop unidentified men from killing his grandson, a local newspaper reporter. Tyler is reluctant to take the case, wishing to get back to a life of leisure, but when Smith is killed in a hit-and-run car accident, Tyler is convinced someone has silenced the old man to protect a secret. Delving into the mystery, Tyler finds himself investigating the world of genetic engineering and its potentially devastating impact on the environment. And after enduring numerous attempts on his life, Tyler begins to wonder if he’ll live long enough to bring the killer to justice.


"Oakley Tyler is destined to be the new Travis McGee! Hartmann has created a great character and put him in the middle of a classic detective mystery involving Native American mythology, the death of the world, and good old fashioned murder. Fast and fun reading!" —Lamar Waldron, author of Ultimate Sacrifice

"A compelling and entertaining read from beginning to end…very highly recommended to the attention of mystery/suspense enthusiasts and denotes author Thom Hartmann as a master of the genre." —The Midwest Book Review
