2016 Colorado Book Award Finalist - Mystery
"Thrilling, irresistible." - Kirkus Reviews
“Lake of Fire swirls into an environmental inferno that reads all too true--Mark Stevens writes like wildfire.” - Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire novels, basis for the hit series Longmire.
A giant wildfire is roaring through Colorado’s Flat Tops Wilderness. The massive blaze is wiping out Allison Coil’s precious hunting grounds and the flames have set their sights on the beautiful ranch owned by her boyfriend’s family. Backwoods survivalist Devo finds a body in the blackened forest. The dead man turns out to be a reclusive environmentalist with an unorthodox idea for the battle against global warming. The dead man was no stranger to Allison or her longtime friend, Trudy Heath. Allison, with help from Glenwood Springs reporter Duncan Bloom, burrows into an underground world of haters who harbor a grim view of the world. Suddenly, Trudy goes missing. If Allison can stop the wicked haters, ordinary hell might not be punishment enough for where these particular agents of evil belong.
