Press & Reviews

“THRILLING, IRRESISTIBLE.”
KIRKUS

Lake of Fire swirls into an environmental inferno that reads all too true–​Mark Stevens writes like wildfire.”
–Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire novels, basis for the hit series Longmire.

“Engrossing.”
Mystery Scene Magazine

“A complex tale of murder, mayhem and misguided patriotism.”
The Denver Post

Trapline author and former reporter Mark Stevens is no stranger to following a lead for a story, and he weaves a brilliant tale that makes it difficult to put the book down. Find this clever read at local bookstores and online.”
Colorado Country Life Magazine

“Stevens crafts a tight thriller with a wonderful sense of the characters and atmosphere of the Colorado mountains – Western Slope readers will no doubt see their friends and neighbors and themselves in the rag-tag team of individualistic high-country sleuths of Lake of Fire … Many readers, of course, turn to mystery novels as diversions from fears about things like global warming. Instead, in Lake of Fire, Stevens uses those fears to drive a gripping gumshoe narrative.”
The Aspen Times

“Going straight to the fourth book in the series was not seriously problematic, but I would recommend starting at the beginning to better enjoy Allison and Trudy’s character development. I am so excited to have found a well-written, suspenseful mystery series set in our own gorgeous backyard.”
Steamboat Pilot & Today

“A gripping story of a Western wildfire linked to the fires that rage in the human heart. Don’t miss it.”
—Margaret Coel, author of Night of the White Buffalo

“You’ll root for the smartest, coolest heroine this side of the Mississippi: Allison Coil. Try not to tear the pages as you turn them furiously.”
—James Ziskin, author Stone Cold Dead and the Ellie Stone Mysteries
