ECO-INTRIGUE IN THE BACKYARD The Hydra Effect by V. Christian Kingsford (Foxx Group, 2012) is a tidy book with timely 21st century themes melding romance, western vistas and a planet in peril. With quick, curt scene changes that flit the reader from helicopter to speeding car to the back of a rearing horse, with this action-adventure brings to mind heroes of the big screen, namely Harrison Ford during his glory days. The narrative follows a retired Black Op agent who is unwillingly thrust back into the hot seat, naturally with a lovely, witty and whip-smart woman at his side. --By Karina Wetherbee- Special to The Daily Summit News
