About the Book

A secretive proposal to develop a renewable energy facility on the abandoned site of the Big Orebed Mine causes an uproar among the citizens of the Adirondack hamlet of Orebed Lake. Biologists Bert Charles and Helen Morgia get involved. The two, who first worked together in Salt Marsh Slider, team up to forestall criminal wrongdoing and environmental devastation. They must use their wits and all they have learned in their careers in the Fish and Wildlife Service. When it is learned that the proposal is for a wind farm instead of the expected synthetic fuel plant, the news is greeted warmly by most citizens. Questions arise, however, when the identity, motivations, and sincerity of the developers are called into question. And some people question the compatibility of a wind power facility with wilderness values in the Adirondacks, splitting the community along its environmental and economic fault lines. Nor is the feasibility of the project certain; details of the proposal are murky, and more than scientific prowess is required to learn what is afoot. Meanwhile an apparent homicide may or may not be related to the proposed wind farm, and Bert and Helen’s investigations soon expose them to the threat of physical danger.
