Glacier National Park has always had animal predators living in its forest but now it has a human one. A particularly cunning one with a gruesome MO for their kills..
Maggie Gaines is the park ranger called to the scene of a murdered woman strung up in the forest of the park. The gruesomeness of the scene is not something she’d ever thought she’d see as park ranger. Eight years ago she walked away from her job with the FBI BSU unit due to not being able to handle the things she saw on the job and here she is again staring at the depravity of a killers hand. If that wasn’t bad enough the FBI agent sent to take over the case is her ex partner she hasn’t seen since she walked away from the FBI.
Vic Sutherland is the only character (other than his boss) that’s from the first book. He was Eden Collins partner and since she took a new job at the end of that book he has a new partner now. He had already been investigating two murders in other national parks, and when a third happens in Glacier National Park the FBI knows they have a serial killer on their hands. He knows when he is sent there that he is going to have to face his past – which is his ex partner Maggie.
Along with trying to find the killer, 5 hikers go missing. Is this tied to the previous killings, are these 5 in danger from the killer?
This was an engaging suspense that kept me riveted till the end..
