A Wyoming fishing guide must return to his investigative roots to find his best friend’s girlfriend in the second book of this thrilling series that “fans of C. J. Box and Nevada Barr will relish” (Library Journal).

High season is coming to an end, and fishing guide Jake Trent suddenly has some time on his hands. As the ex-lawyer ponders rekindling his romance with park ranger Noelle Klimpton, a surprise call from a long-lost love lights up his phone.

It’s been years since law school graduation, when Jake last saw Divya Navaysam. Now a DC lobbyist, Divya wants Jake to come to Washington for a consulting job—immediately.

Meanwhile, back in Jackson, Jake’s best friend and occasional employee, J.P., is dealing with his own romantic woes. After years of bad luck in love, J.P. has fallen for Esma. But after a perfect summer, J.P.’s new girlfriend is now back in her native Mexico—and before long, she seems to have gone off the grid completely. When local police offer little help, a distraught J.P. turns to Jake. To find Esma, Jake must navigate a heated relationship with his ex-flame in Washington. Jake’s renegade investigation leads him to a remote cabin in Idaho—and a series of discoveries that point to a conspiracy bigger than anything anyone could have imagined.

David Riley Bertch’s second installment in the Jake Trent series is a rollicking, juicy thriller—with a twisting plotline involving immigration, overpopulation, dirty politicians, and international intrigue. Now, “Jake Trent will be the next in line for suspense/thriller readers to adore” (Suspense Magazine).

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bertsch skillfully twines the subplots and characters into a nonstop adventure and a suspenseful page-turner that leaves the reader breathless. This is a winner, especially for C. J. Box fans.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Former prosecutor Jake Trent Trent has found a new, quieter life as a fishing guide in Wyoming, but his life becomes much less sedate after an old flame, Divya Navaysam, asks him to meet her in Washington, DC…Meanwhile, Jackson, Wyoming, police chief Roger Terrell and his wife travel to China to represent their community on an odd tour that lands them in a bizarre village made up to look just like their hometown. The unrelated plot lines end up fitting together logically and smoothly, and Trent is convincing both as a man of action and as one of thought.”
