Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1

Les Becquets (Breaking Wild, 2016) gets inside the minds of two determined but broken characters: Marian Engström, an insecure young woman who tracks wildlife in the frozen expanses of northern Alberta, and Nick Shepard, an ailing investigator who's obsessed with finding a serial killer who prowls the region where Marian spends her days. Marian comes to suspect that someone close to her is the killer, and the intricately woven, atmospheric story will keep readers wondering until the end. The frozen landscape is prominent here, providing somber framing for Marian's emotionally driven work with tracking dogs and her experience adoring a man who can never love her enough. This melancholy but engaging tale is a great winter recommendation; try it with fans of other landscape-driven works, such as William Shaw's The Birdwatcher. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Marian Engström is just as passionate about mentor Tate as she is about her new work with rescue dogs to protect endangered wildlife in Alberta. But emerging inconsistencies about his life make her suspect that he's a serial killer. From the author of the award-winning Breaking Wild, a nationwide U.S. best seller.

Marian Engström, the 26-year-old heroine of this elegantly written thriller from Les Becquets (Breaking Wild), joins a conservation study group in northeastern Alberta, where she begins her instruction as a dog handler. Her mentor is charismatic Tate Mathias, who charms her with stories from his adventurous life. Soon Marian is head-over-heels in love. While she's away on another assignment, Tate is killed, horribly mauled by a bear. She subsequently meets Tate's sister and discovers that he wasn't always truthful about his exploits. One of his claims was that he had found the body of one of the victims of a serial killer. She contacts Nick Shepard, a psychologist and former forensic profiler who worked on the still-unsolved serial killer case, and asks him to confirm Tate's claim. From that point, the story revs up, providing more than enough tension and suspense as Marian inches closer to the dangerous and disturbing truth. Eloquent, detailed descriptions of nature and of rescue dog training, survival techniques, and the peripatetic life of conservationists enrich the narrative. Agent: Michelle Brower, Folio Literary.
