Summary

Trouble is rising in Montana's Bitterroot Valley and only one man is willing to stop it....

Frank Riordan is waging a one-man campaign to shut down the local pulp mill that is polluting the air and devastating the environment; tensions are growing, and the only man who can help already has troubles of his own. Having served time for accidentally killing a man Iry Paret is making a fresh start on Frank's ranch, where he meets a dynamic and beautiful woman who will test the limits of Iry's loyalty to his friends.

Goes round and round

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I prefer a book to build to a height with a nice neat ending.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I am certainly not as clever as this great author. James Lee Burke is a brilliant writer.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Descriptio9ns were great.

Could you see The Lost Get-Back Boogie being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Nope.
