It’s an idyllic late-summer day in Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is fly-fishing with his two daughters when he stumbles upon the mutilated body of a moose. Whatever—or whoever—attacked the animal was ruthless: half the animal’s face has been sliced away, the skin peeled back from the flesh. Shaken by the sight, Joe starts to investigate what he hopes in an isolated incident. Days later, after the discovery of a small herd of mutilated cattle, Joe realizes that something much more terrifying than he could have imagined is to blame.

Local authorities are quick to label the attacks the work of a grizzly bear, but Joe knows otherwise. The cuts on the moose and the cattle were too clean, too precise, to have been made by jagged teeth. Are the animals only practice for a killer about to move on to another, more challenging prey? Soon, Joe’s worst fears are confirmed. The bodies of two men are found within hours of each other, in separate locations, their wounds eerily similar to those found on the moose and cattle. There’s a vicious killer on the loose in Saddlestring, a modern-day Jack the Ripper—and it appears his rampage is just beginning.

Listener Opinions

    " 4.25 stars. I so enjoy spending time in Wyoming with Joe Pickett, his family and the entire cast of characters. This one starts with Joe finding a mutilated moose and Sheriff Barnum, the sheriff we love to hate, finds cattle mutilated in similar fashion. Soon thereafter, mutilated people are also found. There is talk of aliens and all sorts of speculation. It is a curious case, a well-told story, and a great escape. Everything you want in a crime fiction novel. "

    " This was kind of creepy, but I did enjoy it. Joe Pickett is out fishing with his daughters when they come upon a dead bull moose which has been gruesomely disfigured. Shortly after, a herd of cattle suffers the same fate. What is causing these animals to die? What-or who- is surgically mutilating them? Joe is caught up in the investigation along with Sheriff Barnum, and FBI agent Portenson. I wasn't quite satisfied with the ending. Like Joe, I'm not fond of the "woo-woo" stuff which left a few threads dangling. "

    " A series of animal mutilations is labeled as the work of a grizzly bear, but game warden Joe Pickett believes it is the work of a modern day Jack the Ripper. Moments that were really creepy. "
