The indomitable Donovan Nash has his hands full yet again, with trained assassins, the FBI and even the brain trust of the eco-friendly organization he founded hot on his trail.

Could it be the end of the road for the wily and seemingly indestructible Nash, who finds himself under siege by his old nemesis, the villainous Garrick Pearce? Will Pearce finally be able to exact his revenge, laying to waste to our intrepid hero and the very organization he helped to create?

'Deadly Echoes' novelYou can pick up a copy of “Deadly Echoes,” fourth in the series of Donovan Nash thrillers, to find out the fate of the protagonist of author Philip Donlay’s action-packed adventures. Or, you might drop by Griffin Bay Bookstore to grab a hint from the author himself.

Donlay returns to Griffin Bay Bookstore Saturday, April 19, to showcase the latest in his series of Donovan Nash novels, 2-4 p.m.

A former pilot who learned to fly in high school and has traveled to 40 countries on five continents, and once flew as co-pilot for a Saudi Prince, Donlay now divides his time between Minneapolis and the San Juan Islands since retiring from a career in aviation in 2008.

The San Juans serve as the backdrop for much of the action-packed story in Deadly Echoes, which finds Nash racing from Southern California to the islands and British Columbia, and finally to Alaska, where he joins the faithful members of Eco-Watch in a desperate attempt to sabotage Pearce’s dastardly and deadly plot, and to stop what promises to be the worst eco-atrocity in history.

The question is… will he make it in time?
