Newlywed Mary Hall brings her husband to settle in the rural New Hampshire of her youth to reconnect to the land that defined her. But on a mountain day hike, she watches helplessly as her husband falls to his death. As she struggles with her grief, Mary finds new friendships with members on the mountain club crew, and with Ben, the gentle fire watchman. Each are haunted by their own losses, but they find ways to restore hope in one another.

Set on the wild Channel Islands off the coast of California, Boyle's novel is a gripping adventure with a timely theme.

 

Alma Boyd Takesue is a National Park Service biologist leading efforts to save the islands' native  creatures from invasive species. Her antagonist Dave LaJoy,

a local businessman fiercely opposed to the killing of any animals whatsoever, will go to any lengths to subvert her plans.

 


 

As their confrontation plays out in a series of scenes escalating in violence, drama, and danger, When the Killing's Done relates a richly humane tale about the dominion we attempt to exert, for better or worse, over the natural world.
