9781466407916: Death of an Activist

When beautiful and iconoclastic activist Rose Smith is abducted and brutally murdered in the Amazon, where she is working to prevent big oil from drilling on Indian lands, her former lover, investigative writer Ulyce Robideaux, sets out on a trans-continental journey to uncover the mystery behind her death. Unbeknown to him, he will be drawn into a web of international intrigue at the highest levels, endangering his own life. Complicating matters is Marianne Popovich, who hoping to win Robideaux's love sets out on an odyssey of her own into Rose's past, which will not only reveal the true motivation for Rose's activism but explicate a critical and missing portion of her own life as well. From the rapidly changing world of the traditional Amazonian Indians to the corridors of power on the world stage where compromise and treachery are the name of the game in an ongoing quest for money and power, Death of an Activist is a fast paced examination of energy geopolitics and its place in the New World Order

From the Author:

Death of an Activist grew out of an interview I read with First Nations actor Adam Beech, who stated that his dream was to star in a movie like Lethal Weapon. I thought, what a great idea, and his partner could be the great actor Graham Green. Since then Mr. Beech has gone on to star in the excellent adaptations of Tony Hillerman's Navajo mysteries, along with the iconic Wes Studi, who was so very memorable in the role of Magua in Micheal Mann's adaptation of Last of the Mohicans.That is how the characters of Ulyce Robideaux and Adam Smith were born. Up to that time I had read very few mysteries and fewer thrillers. Later, I realized something interesting- that under a layer of murder and investigation, these books are actually works of social realism.At the core of the story, I knew there had to be a beautiful, amoral and enigmatic woman who loses her life, since that is the type of story that I am most often drawn to. However I decided to begin with her death and let the characters coalesce around her. In the aftermath of 9-11, I wanted to write a story about the reality of foreign policy and corporate malfeasance which was not so apparent then but has become more than clear to many of us. I began not in the Middle East, but with Native Americans who were the first victims of colonization and empire and who are still struggling to maintain their lands, way of life, and dignity amidst the onslaught of rapacious commercial interests. Often, as shown in the book, indigenous peoples all over the world have been pushed to the most undesirable corners of the planet and ironically end up sitting on mineral and oil riches. My story took me to the Amazon where these terrible struggles continue.Death of an Activist represented a huge learning curve for me, that took me from the oil fields of the Amazon to the boardrooms of financial institutions, and the power makers behind the scenes. Everything I covered is well documented and publicized by now, thanks to the very diligent work of the alternative media and bloggers, who tired of the stranglehold of the Mainstream Media, have done excellent work exposing the way the world is really run.If you care about the environment, indigenous people, globalization, and corruption, I'm certain that you will enjoy the mystery behind Death of an Activist.
