MOUNTAIN MEN
Wouldn't you just believe it. First Tessa is kidnapped, which is bad enough. Second, she's kidnapped by a group of survivalists who shun society and live in the Pacific North West wilderness. Third, the leader of this group is an Immortal, and fourth, he's in love with Tessa. It's not all doom and gloom, though: Mac is on their tail, and he's understandably peeved.

A competent story, if nothing special. At least Duncan gets to meet an Immortal he's never met before, which must be quite a novelty. C+
