Heron IslandeBook - 2010
Worker protests, unbridled capitalist greed and the specter of international terrorism shadow the sunlit summer of 1903 in an America still reeling from a President's murder by an avowed anarchist. Widowed Rough Rider and Shakespearean actor Dade Wyatt longs to cast off the shadows of his own past and retreat to a quiet life as a security operative for pulp and paper tycoon Warren Dodge. But when Dodge's plans to host Wyatt's old commander President Teddy Roosevelt on his idyllic Vermont estate are imperiled by a guest's mysterious death, Wyatt must descend into a maelstrom of desperate poverty, anarchy and class war to safeguard the President and bring a killer to justice. With help from an enigmatic Creole, a bluff Scots police inspector from the N.Y.P.D. and a Vermont farm girl on the cusp of womanhood, Wyatt embarks on an odyssey that takes him from the immigrant slum-dwellers of the lower East Side to the aristocrats of Fifth Avenue, from the granite sheds and anarchist lairs of Barre, Vermont to the island playgrounds of the rich on Lake Champlain, into confrontations with human love and revolutionary passion in all their most fearsome guises. --Provided by publisher.
