Like thrillers? Boy, have I got the one for you. Deadly Echoes by Philip Donlay. Do not miss it.

Donovan Nash founded Eco-Watch, a premier scientific research organization which is now being blamed for violent eco-atrocities around the world. Garrick Pearce has a vendetta against Nash and threatens to destroy Eco-Watch's reputation. He then plans to kill everyone close to Nash.

As a result of the atrocities, Nash is being hunted by the FBI, trained killers, and his own organization. The world has been led to believe that Nash founded Eco-Watch simply to fill his own pockets. While this is not so, Nash must stop Garrick in his tracks. A woman by the name of Erica claims she has info that will help to clear Nash's name. But by helping him, she also becomes a target.

Nash and Erica run from Southern California to British Columbia and finally to Alaska, where he joins some of his own people who still believe in him. They try to stop the worst eco-atrocity ever. Nash is putting his and Erica's life on the line.

Deadly Echoes is the fourth of Donlay's works. He has created a protagonist worth writing about. Nash is a man of strong convictions who will follow through to do what he thinks is right. He is loyal and his men are loyal to him. He cares very strongly about the environment and puts his life on the line to improve the world.

Erica is a pretty strong character also. She believes in Nash and will be of help to him in whatever he decides must be done. Deadly Echoes starts off running and doesn't stop until the last page. It is rather exhausting to read. I think at times I almost forgot to breathe. I repeat. Do not miss this one.
