To Kill a Common Loon is part murder mystery, part contemporary fantasy, part eco-fable, and all fun. Harp P. Gravey, a down-and-out sometime-banjo picker, just wants to fulfill a death-bed promise to a friend and scatter his ashes in the wilderness. He never bargained on a shape-shifting dragon, an Indian Princess, a hat-loving cougar, and a villain who will stop at nothing to steal his friend’s land.

Praise for To Kill A Common Loon
“I loved Mitch’s book. Has large-market potential, I’d say. A good yarn, wonderfully visceral, funny, and natural history driven.”
—Robert Michael Pyle, Writer and Naturalist, Willapa Bay, Oregon
“Filled with quirky moments.., the novel will surely frustrate readers with a low threshold for eccentricity. Anyone with a taste for bizarre fiction, however, will find plenty to feast on in these pages.”
—Stephen Blair, Journalist reviewer for The Portland, Tribune, Portland, Oregon.
“LOON reads like a cross between Carl Hiaasen and Edward Abbey. Mitch Luckett is one strange guy. LOON is one weird book. I loved it.”
—Mike Houck, Urban Naturalist for the Audubon Society of Portland.
“Harp Gravey, what saucy drippings, silky topper for a great spud. To hear Mitch is more than music… his yarn voice is clear and grown up well. Melodious and truer n true.”
—Bill Slawson, Reviewer, Spencer, Iowa.
“I’m mad about LOON, it’s hard to put down. And I think if it was put in a contest, say, with my environmental wacko favorite, “The Monkey Wrench Gang,” it would win, hands down.”
—Lacy Turner, Radio Station Program Manager, Portland, Oregon.
“I got 3/4ths done with LOON and it hit me; my God, this is a Harry Potter for adults.”
—Eric Witchey, Oregon writer.
