By William Hazelgrove
When the sixteen year old daughter of a prominent attorney is raped in a woodshed and a logger found shot the next morning, Deputy Sheriff Reuger London becomes embroiled in a war between environmentalists, the Ojibwa Indians fighting for their timber rights, and the ruthless son of a powerful logger. Ben Johnson is the biggest logger in the Northwoods and his son Cliff will soon take over the business. Logging is dying a slow death from environmental restrictions and all that's left are the scrub firs and jackpine. But far up in the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota are trees called the Old Pines. These three hundred year Norwegian pines are priceless and Johnson Timber wants them.
Hazelgrove delivers a searing look at a disintegrating company town and the
desperate lengths people will go to in order to preserve their way of life. . Distinctive supporting characters help keep the pages turning. Rough country and people as tenacious as the jack pines, the softwood trees that have replaced the old clear-cut timber, make Hazelgrove's novel memorable.
I couldn't put this book down. Plenty of atmosphere in a fascinating part of the country. If you liked the movie FARGO then you will love this book.

Jack Pine is a first-rate crime thriller very much dependent upon the setting in which Hazelgrove has placed it. The author vividly portrays a lifestyle and a physical environment few Americans ever get the opportunity to see for themselves, and that is a big part of the fun of Jack Pine.

"Stiltskin breaks through the cacophony with a finely tuned laugh-out-loud tale. Original, twisted and satisfyingly hilarious, Stiltskin will sing in the fantasy world." –Audrey Kearns, Host and Co-Creator of the 5 Truths and a Lie Podcast
What would you do if you found an evil dwarf in your bathtub?
