Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2010
Rate this:
On the last stroke of November, as Nile Nightingale examines a church with a faded for-sale sign, he is startled by a gun-racked pickup barrelling down the country lane. With a sack roped to the roof, it veers past the church and comes to a spinning stop beside the cemetery in the back. Silence, then a thud. With that sound ends the peace he expected to find when he fled the addictions, exhaustions, and legal problems of home by heading north, illegally, into Quebec's Laurentian Mountains. Inside the burlap sack is the bloodied but breathing body of a teenage girl. Against his better judgement, Nile resolves to treat her wounds and find those who left her for dead. The Extinction Club is a powerful and poignant depiction of wildlife plunder and of those who dare to oppose it. It is also a darkly comic tale, in which the very urban Nile and the country-smart, near-genius Celeste teach each other about life and death, love and loss.
