Summary
What happens when a good man goes rogue? Michael MacDougall is a talented trauma surgeon whose life in Seattle is slowly unraveling. Frustrated as an ER doctor and his marriage in trouble, he volunteers with a medical aid charity in the Congo. Soon disconsolate at the lives he cannot save in the desperate conditions of the region, he is shattered by a roadside confrontation with the mercenary Mai Mai that results in unthinkable losses. Back home in Seattle, he is haunted by his experiences in Africa and what he sees as his society's failure to provide humanitarian aid to those who most desperately need it. He tries to become an agent of change and fails. Locked in a downward spiral, he becomes obsessed with making his government listen to him and dreams up an act of ecoterrorism to shock his nation awake. This debut novel from celebrated environmental lawyer/activist David Boyd is a taut and percussive legal thriller that will have you questioning what you believe about right versus wrong
