"Master of suspense" (The New York Times Book Review) James W. Hall delivers another nail-biting Thorn thriller and this time, the stakes are higher than ever as Thorn embarks on a mission to save his newfound son.
Earth Liberation Front is a loosely-knit national organization of radical environmental activists who take a "by any means necessary" approach to defending the planet. In the last decade, ELF has been responsible for almost a hundred million dollars in damage mainly through arson. The FBI ranks them, along with other eco-radicals, as the number one homegrown terrorist threat. And Flynn Moss—Thorn's newly discovered son—appears to be among ELF's members.
"no-holds-barred action…A fine thriller on every level." —Booklist
Flynn has naively fallen in with an ELF cell in Miami, where he's engaged in non-violent protest against one of Florida's largest nuclear power plants. But soon Flynn uncovers another, darker plot among ELF operatives—one that involves a radioactive catastrophe rivaling Chernobyl or Fukushima. With a growing sense of dread about his involvement in such a scheme, Flynn summons Thorn to help him escape from Prince Key, the remote island off the shores of Miami where the ELF group is camped. But just as soon as Thorn leads the fight to save Flynn, he reaches a frightening realization: In order to protect his son, he must join the eco-terrorists and help them complete their deadly mission. And time is running out in Going Dark…
