The Hawk of the Intervale
Historian and trail runner Liam Dutra is back for more adventure and exploration, investigating the history at the heart of New England mysteries. This time he's looking for long-lost poet-- and fisherman--Virgil Dubois. Liam's quest begins on the shores of Lake Champlain with Virgil's Abenaki roots, and leads to the poet's troubled past on the U-boat-haunted waters off New England in the early years of World War II. Meanwhile, at home in Vermont, a death by snakebite on the shores of Lake Champlain may be more than an accident, and Liam and his partner Shawn Donahue are caught up dangerously in what prove to be deadly tensions among land developers, environmentalists, and members of a mysterious home-grown church. With strong sense of place and richly poetic storytelling, this second installment of the Liam Dutra New England mystery series takes the reader deep into the powerful living past and present of New England's landscapes and waterways.
