Book II in the Awan Lake Series
Fear permeates the village of Spirit River, where the proposed expansion of a mining and smelter operation could threaten the waters of idyllic Awan Lake. RGI has a shaky reputation worldwide for its disregard and manipulation  of environmental regulations, to say nothing of a history of bullying national governments and local communities alike. Frank Anderson, a local contractor with deep roots in the Coast Guard, is passionate about protecting his adopted community and gathers a network of police officers, local leaders and talented young women to bring the corporation to its knees.

Nobody Drowned is the second Frank Anderson novel in the Awan Lake series, by Canadian author Peter Kingsmill.
