9780373280193: Forest Prime Evil

JUST DYING TO SAVE THE TREES... - Part hero, part activist, the Green Man is a modem-day Johnny Appleseed whose grass roots campaign to preserve the redwoods gets the ax when he is felled by a plummeting branch. But echoes of foul play reverberate through Northern California's ancient forests. - Hired by a radical conservation group to investigate, P.I. Stuart Winter ventures into the heated war between activists and the timber industry and discovers the Green Man's private life wasn't nearly as down to earth as his image. Seeds of scandal, greed and danger are sprouting all over sequoia country--and Winter's attraction for the gorgeous activist Ashe O'Connor makes it hard to see the forest for the trees.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The riddle of modern-day Johnny Appleseed Christopher (``the Green Man'') Shepard's death--was he killed by a falling redwood branch, as the police think, or by an operator-assisted branch, as his surviving friends in the radical ecological commune EverGreen suspect?--provides an excuse for San Francisco shamus Stuart Winter to drive to Garberville (whose two main drags are Redwood Drive and pot). There, he'll learn that the Green Man had antagonized not only logging bigwig Harold (Bull) Dozier, but also fundamentalist preacher Reginald Sawyer, marijuana moguls Red, Cincy, and Coop, and whoever didn't approve of his nudist midnight back-to-nature rituals. Stuart also learns that not all environmentalists like each other. Highly competent mystery-mongering, generously stuffed with red-herrings, subplots, and woodsy background--though several notches below Stuart's impressive debut last year in No Sign of Murder. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From Library Journal:

Far removed from ancient Rome, a modern private investigator, San Francisco-based Stuart Winter, ponders the apparent murder of the "Green Man," a self-styled Johnny Appleseed. Hired by a radical eco-defense group, he journeys to the redwood forests of northern California, where he suspects both pro-logging and pro-"save the Old Growth" factions. As he digs deeper into the Green Man's past, however, he broadens the range of suspects. Serviceable prose, quick-moving plot, and plenty of facts about endangered redwoods contribute to a fine second outing for Russell ( No Sign of Murder , Walker,
