David E. Manuel about this book: Richard Paladin returns and faces his toughest assignment to date. A logging company's employees have been turning up mysteriously dead, threatening a lucrative contract to fell a national forest in Oregon. The company's CEO has turned to an old friend, the President of the United States, for help, and that means sending in Paladin, America's top Environmental Protection Agent. Rather than terrorist tree-huggers, however, he finds himself in deadly combat with an adversary who displays all the talents of a professional killer. To make matters worse, there seems to be a ghost haunting the forest.
Paladin's unique voice leads the reader through the familiar terrain of the Paladin series; corruption, cynical civil servants, a government with a bent moral compass, all with a healthy dose of sarcasm and humor. But The Killer Trees takes Paladin out of his East Coast Washington environment into the untamed American West, and it's an assignment Paladin may need all his luck to survive! Give it a read.
