"Exhilarating amateur sleuth environmental tale"
Attorneys Dan Young and Maria Fisher are the intermediaries
exchanging the five hundred thousand dollars in the dark
reaches of Muldoon's Pub. Dan represents enormous
lumbering interests while Maria serves as an agent for the
environmental crowd. The money is to be used by the tree
huggers to push for Highland Park, a forest north of San
Francisco near the Oregon border, to become a National
Everything goes smoothly until Maria leaves the pub with
the loot. An unknown assailant assaults Maria and escapes
in a waiting getaway car with the money. Maria and Dan
give chase, but almost die in the nearby forest. Seeking
help, they soon become embroiled in a secret project of the
Amada Corporation headed by unscrupulous individuals
willing to kill to keep their clandestine operation quiet.
Though their lives are in jeopardy, can a tree hugger and a
tree cutter find the common ground to work together to stay
alive? If love has any say in the matter the answer is yes.
Though the protagonists are both lawyers, AT THE EDGE
is an exhilarating amateur sleuth environmental tale (not a
legal thriller). The lead couple is a delight as their
opinions on the environment are not as far apart as one
might expect (only the Atlantic Ocean not the Pacific
Ocean). The story line is action-packed though some of the
moves by the bad guys seem dumb for a group trying not to
bring attention to their activities. Still fans of
environmental thrillers will want to read David Dun's tale
that takes the audience over the edge with excitement and
want more novels starring this appealing duo.
