In this first book in a debut thriller series, attorney-turned-fishing-guide Jake Trent’s idyllic life is upended when he finds himself at the center of a series of grisly killings set around picturesque Jackson Hole.
It’s early summer in Jackson, Wyoming. Former East Coast
prosecutor Jake Trent, now a local fishing guide, is wading through a swift
current of local politics, introspection, and tragedy. Four seemingly
unrelated deaths have occurred in one day—unheard of in the scenic valley. A
skier perishes in a freak late-season avalanche. A French couple is discovered
mutilated on a remote trail in Grand Teton National Park—presumably by a bear.
On the Snake River, Jake himself finds the body of an expensively attired
tourist fisherman. Meanwhile, a series of small earthquakes—not to mention a
bitter dispute between land developers and a cult-like group of
environmentalists—has left the townspeople uneasy.
Before long, the plausible explanations for each death
dissolve. Could there be a sinister connection between them? When fresh evidence
points to him as a suspect, Jake is put on the defensive. Is someone out to
frame him? Can he keep his past demons at bay while he tries to discover the

Defying the police, Jake teams up with park ranger Noelle

Yellowstone. What they discover will put all their lives at risk …
