Nile Nightingale is on the run. Fleeing across the border to rural Quebec, he seeks refuge at an abandoned church when his junked-up, over-stimulated mind takes in that he has just witnessed a body drop -- in a bloody sack tied with Christmas ribbon. The contents, unconscious but still alive, turn out to be fifteen-year-old Celeste Jonqueres, who has been beaten and slashed, like wild game, to slowly bleed out. From his hideout, as he nurses his patient back from the brink and begins to face his own life, he pieces together what he has tumbled into. Animal rights activists Celeste and her beloved grandmother have taken on a vicious poaching ring, operating from Quebec's Laurentian Mountains and dealing in animal parts for the international market, with the collusion of corrupt officials. Her grandmother has died suspiciously. And now that Nile has saved Celeste from the dead, the poachers and thier accomplices in this small town have taken notice and are cautiously, but inexorably, closing in.

This novel deals with a subject that isn't often viewed. The smuggling of animal parts and animate creatures,.
The author presents a unique voice
that isn't often heard in today's narratives. The relationship between the two central characters builds from a
"saving Samaritan" to an "allies against". Extremely well developed and presented an enjoyable read that I highly recommend. Well deserving of the positive reviews that have been reported so far.
