Synopsis:

In Kim Heacox's suspenseful debut novel, Shannon DeShay, a young woman from Alaska discovers a militant plot to destroy an environmental movement and must risk everything to save a wildlife refuge and the man she loves. At the nexus is a real issue: attempts by the petroleum industry---and most of Alaska's political and business leaders ---to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. From Anchorage and Alaska's North Slope to Washington D.C. and the halls of Congress, this is a compelling story of intrigue, landscape, and love.
